69. Actually, he spread at a unique time in history. It was when most people weren't political....

 

Station managers were told "Here's a free show to fill three hours every day with a built in loyal audience." After they were the local station to air it they were trapped. If they personally wanted to drop the show they were met with terroristic threats by that gun happy audience. As in, "we know where you live" kinda personal threats.

Of course, this was back before the big guys bought up all the little WKRP type operations all over the country.

(I'm old enough to remember when they had cool DJs.)
