Idea of the morning (sparked by a post on lew rockwell's blog about a 50 state strategy - http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/017787.html)

With it being recently revealed that Mitt Romney's "former" company <a href=http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/017694.html>has bought ClearChannel</a> (1100+ stations), after being in negotiations for a year, and also subjecting myself to the pain of Michael Reagan on satellite talk radio yesterday...

It seems to me that taking to the airwaves might be a good idea while it's still possible.

Last I looked, which was about 5 years ago, an hour of radio on AM cost about 400 dollars. It's hard to get Paul's message across in short segments, and even an hour is not enough....

Also, buying an hour of radio for a show comes with 8-24 free 30 second spots as part of the package.

Enough audio exists on ronpaulaudio.com to build up a series of canned shows, if you wanted to just buy that level of airtime and perhaps comment periodically between prerecorded pieces, or you could hold next meetup group meeting at a radio station, have a party, call people, do interviews, bring some tea... this would generate more recordings that could then be built upon and further podcast.

Furthermore, after a little practice at this, there could be a Ron Paul Radio day or days, which would be an attempt by the grassroots to buy time everywhere to blanket the airwaves nationwide with material, or statewide on days near a primary. And perhaps a few netroots with good radio voices would arise....

I'm going to stop by my local radio station today and see what an hour costs these days on FM or AM vs the size of the audience....
