Okay, so I spent this week driving around the Chicago metro area in a rental car. Flipping through the AM stations I was pleasantly surprised at the variety of stations. There were a number of ethnic stations - at least three Polish ones, at least 2 Russian, I also rolled across Spanish, Korean (I'm pretty sure), and some I just plain didn't recognize. I was also pleasantly surprised to pick up the distinctively catholic talk station "relevant radio" (for which I found this link: relevantradio.com/).
I have to say, Southern California has a substantial catholic population, but we have nothing like this on the radio. What gives? Why is So. Cal. so media poor? Why aren't we at least as catholic as the mid-west? :shrug:
