Just sent this to the feedback email for my favorite classical music radio station. I'm probably an idiot for this, but just it's been really bugging me. It's hard to listen to a radio station when almost every commercial break makes you want to hit something.

Hello KDFC,

I understand that times are tough and you need to take money from anyone who is paying, and yet I am extremely tired of all the Meg Whitman ads! I haven't heard any ads from progressive candidates or causes, and as a liberal, it really makes me feel like I must be in the minority of your listeners if my views don't seem to get any airtime.

I really love the diversity of music on KDFC, and I would hope that your listeners are an equally diverse group of people. It's hard to continue to listen to your otherwise wonderful station when I continually feel like my political views are invisible amongst your listeners and staff.

If at all possible, please run some progressive political ads to balance out all the conservatism, or reduce the number of Meg Whitman ads you're running. It's really disempowering and disheartening to feel like no other classical music fans are progressive, even here in the bay area. I'd be thrilled if you could help make my morning commute less depressing.

Oddly enough, I'd been thinking of sending a similar message to KLLC...

To be honest, if the classical music station I worked for was in California, we'd probably be airing as many Whitman ads as her campaign was willing to buy. This depression has been far harder on commercial classical music stations than it has been on public classical stations, which is why we are going listener supported in June.
