LET THE COUNCIL EARN ITS PAY: SELL ADS

wrr_classical101fm.gifAs many of you know the City owned radio station WRR carries the City Council meetings live every Wednesday.  Former Mayor Starke Taylor once suggested that broadcasting council meetings was the worst thing that ever happened to the city:  not only were the citizens mortified but potential candidates for the City Council were mortified out of running.  That is probably true some of the time, but at others the Council is the best entertainment on radio.  The Council also draws the best audience for the station.  Yet, there are no ads.  Why?  If this show has real ratings the least the Council can do is earn their pay by letting WRR sell ads.  DallasBlog.com would certainly buy some.
