From another story in the NYTimes this morning: “While people are spending less time listening to radio over all, public radio’s share of radio listenership is up, from roughly 1 percent 20 years ago to more than 5 percent of all listeners today, according to the Station Resource Group, a public radio strategy and analysis organization.”
I would guess this increase represents a demographic of those folks with enough education, savvy, and resources to want to engage in the knowledge/power struggle of the species. While clearly many of these lean conservatively, they are likely not so fundamentalist as to resist all change. Perhaps this is a way of measuring the vanguard of social change, even social evolution. 🙂
