Exiled, you hit another nail on the head. I never even spoke about terrorism. Living in NYC and Carbondale, I tend to forget about the little black cloud hanging over our heads. I spent a few nights on patrol, immediately after 911, making sure no one broke barrier and tried to head to Ground Zero. Out of state people were fantastic as far as support went. Water and words made the smoky nights go quicker. The threat of something of that magnitude or anything less, to be honest, is very frightening, though I don't live day to day under that duress. All this chatter about the Hispanic manifest destiny of the airwaves is ridiculous. I enjoy the extremist remarks though I notice most are not as harsh as they would have been 40 years ago. The times they are a changin' and, to be honest, if a platoon of Islamic fanatics are knocking at my front door....my Mexican gardener is getting my extra gun.

Hey Nit-wit or is Nittany, Hispanics make up a large portion of world body. Maybe if you had an education you would know that Mexico is just a small part of it.

Well, I am prejudiced against ignorant people of all races. That would probably include you. Where's dad in your picture? Oh, he's probably not important, you can raise the kid on your own. Single mom? On public assistance? That's not much better than being an illegal, but at least you belong here.
Sorry late response, haha. Dad was deployed out to war when that picture was taken...thanks for asking :)

When I grew up there were radio shows that were in all Polish or Italian, playing their music and doing ads for local businesses, mostly food.
Cullerds have their own radio stations with their music and ads for Black owned businesses.
Only makes sense for a radio station to sell time to Latinos for music and ads too. You have to diversify if you want to survive in terrestrial radio today. Too many options out there with satellite radio or Sirius/IHeart and Ipods.

I'd bet the Amish would enjoy a nice radio show in German, except they dont have radios or electricity and music is the Devil's Tool.

It's still around . If it isn't Dire Straits , Abba , Joe cocker , Dylan or some other older rockers I turn the rest off and go to CD's . There is no more rock and roll , it's big ticket money , get rich quick , go for show and a lot of parents are paying for this crap .
