I can certainly visualize what he was describing in the "Great Square Inches" thing.

Maybe we've just got funnier guest-hosts during the pledge drive weeks here in Little Rock, but I don't mind them much. I even go volunteer to answer phones one evening shift each time.

We were listening to WILL-AM, by the way, driving back from Valpo yesterday. Picked it up about 40 miles north of Champaign (as the Kankakee non-NPR mellow-oldies station we'd BEEN listening to faded out) and kept it until somewhere south of Effingham, when we switched to WSIU back on FM.

WILL AM's signal reaches pretty much all of Indiana and Illinois during daylight hours. For some goofball historical reasons, their license requires them to go to low power after dark, and it gets hard for me to pick them up 40 miles from the tower. (WILL's tower is located a ways west of Champaign.)

Morris (my-husband-the-ham-radio-person) says that the reason the station has to reduce power at night is, that propagation of radio signal is much better at night, (I can recall occasionally hearing WGN out of Chicago late at night down on the Texas gulf coast, for instance) and "who in Africa wants to hear Illinois agricultural weather reportage?"
