I think you missed the point. Alex B mentioned about STL being a "world-class" city, but most cities that are "world-class" you can get anywhere in the world from DIRECTLY by plane. I know this has nothing to do with radio, but I needed to explain myself. True enough, markets can have different tastes, BUT you can also tell the priorities of what is important in certain areas of the country.
It looks to me as if you missed the point, Hamp.
All I got out of your posts was that you didn't like St. Louis, and you don't like classic rock.
Now St. Louis has a station called Movin' that plays bad music all the time. You'd like it.
I guess we are world class now.
