Will AIR AMERICA RADIO rise again in PHOENIX? A website asking for donations from listeners to raise money to lease another station in the market has been established at saveairamericaphoenix.com; the staff of the station, which was bounced from KXXT-A/PHOENIX upon closing of its sale to religious station operator COMMUNICOM, says that it has a deal to bring back the station on another outlet by APRIL 3 but has set a goal of raising $500,000. by the sale of pixels on its gotstation.com website in order to "cover our operating expenses out of the gate" and "guarantee us a home for years to come."
We can do this!
"We can do this!," the site, with the corporate name of "ON SECOND THOUGHT LLC," asserts. "If the Christian broadcasters can raise money from their flock to buy airtime then so can we. As they say in the movie 'Network,' 'I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!'"
