What’s the Frequency?
Where to find tunes and talk on your hotel-room
There’s nothing more annoying than being jolted into
consciousness by the blaring hard rock chosen by the previous
guest, or sleeping through classical when you need Howard Stern to
get you out of bed. The following stations are the top five morning
shows (6 to 10 a.m.) that people age 12 and up listen to in 12
convention cities, as rated by Arbitron in fall 1998. Also listed
are nationwide favorites National Public Radio and Howard Stern,
and the local classical station.
