Al Franken moving to 1530 AM in Twin Cities, Minnesota
From today's Star Tribune:

Air America lands new Twin Cities base
May 15, 2004AIRBAR
Air America is broadcast in 13 U.S. cities and on XM Satellite Radio (167) and Sirius Satellite Radio (125), as well as online at http://www.airamericaradio.com .

Locally, only "The O'Franken Factor" airs on WMNN (1330 AM) as part of a liberal programming package assembled by the Minnesota Production Network. However, MPN announced Friday that it is finalizing the purchase of Shakopee-based KSMM (1530), where its programming (including "O'Franken," Ed Schultz and Wendy Wyld's "The High Ground") will start broadcasting on May 24, according to co-founder Janet Robert.

The seller? Starboard Media, the Catholic radio network which is assuming control of WMNN at the end of the month. Starboard's "Relevant Radio" programming currently airs on KSMM.

2. That isn't on the list of current or Coming Soon areas
Stations which currently carry Air America or will soon.

I guess if you want it for your car, you'll need to get Sirius satellite.

4. Thanks for the great news, Eric!!! I was getting nervous, wondering
if they would go off the air once the Catholic radio network took control of 1330 AM.

Hooray!!!
