Sad reality of the 2014 radio biz is that they'll take whatever money they can get. If you can write the check, they'll sell you the time. Things are so fragmented now that they'll gladly take the infomercials. For a while they were running "Tradio" on weekends, which is a longtime staple of small town radio.

In another age when there was a different economic reality and KDKA was dominating the market, Westinghouse refused to accept advertising for any "personal" products. They also banned cigarette advertising before the government did. Vastly different times.
