Today, there are no friends of WBAI—very few people care, very few people tune in. Most people haven't even heard of WBAI. Some programs have a faithful group of listeners, but they only tune in once a week for the length of that specific program. Who in their right mind wants to be served slavery horror stories for breakfast, the regurgitated historical falsehoods of bygone scam artists, amateur medical advice, unfunny comedy and bland music. Perhaps more to the point, who wants to buy overpriced products and gamble on delivery from a radio station that has ceased to serve any purpose?
Take a look at the article linked to below. It was published almost forty years ago, but it serves well to illustrate how WBAI fared back in the days when listeners had reason to care.
