    I just examined all my bookmarks, and the only (ONLY!) one of them which might possibly match the quality of the links provided here is http://www.nakedcapitalism.com/

    And the radio wasteland extends from coast to coast. One exception is here in MA – WERS, UMB, GBH, WICN in Worcester (one of 15 jazz stations in the country and the best in this comment IMHO) and the Wellesley classical station I can never remember. The Boston area has the best radio in the nation.

    Washington/Baltimore has 2 rock stations which, somehow, is the same number as Syracuse NY, which has the added benefit of picking up a third from a neighboring city. Can’t find any in Charlottesville as far as I can tell but siriusXM reaches everywhere I go :p
