If they are Cheeseheads, would we be...Frankenheads?
Today's bloggerOn my way back from the YDG retreat this weekend, I heard exciting news on Air America (via XM satellite radio, unfortunately, not our good old 1690.) The “mother and father” of Air America, Sheldon and Anita Drobny, have just formed a new company, Nova M Radio, to purchase the distribution of their Air America content. As they explain in this article, content is just one step – you also have to get it to the listeners! The well-publicized purchase of the very successful Air America affiliate in Phoenix and the subsequent switch to religious broadcasting prompted this new company.

Even more interesting, in the interview, Mr. Drobny described one possible business model he called the ‘Green Bay Packers’ model. As you may know, the community of Green Bay has ownership rights to the football team so that they can never be moved to a larger market for purely commercial interests. They are exploring a similar model with the radio stations so that it can stay out of the grasp of ClearChannel -no matter what.

So, anyone wanna buy a radio station??????? I know I do! Shall we look into it?

Here’s a link to the new company’s website…

Tangentially, the first thing I heard this morning on NPR in my car was "This I Believe" Ack - my car is not equipped with Lame Programming Sickness Bags!

See, if George Soros weren't so busy spending his money on overwrought MoveOn ads, we could get him to by 1690 :-)

Are there not some attorneys associated with the Democratic Party who could make things a little difficult for 1690's new eccentric owner, Joe Weber?
