KSFO radio in San Francisco is one of the most important talk-format stations in the country. It enjoys very good ratings, but more importantly, it is the flagshhip for the hearty band of conservatives in the Bay Area. The old saying that "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" applies to Bay Area conservative, a group which includes Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, the late Milton Friedman, and many other thinkers, including Noel Sheppard and yours truly.

KSFO has been under concerted attack by left wing bloggers, seeking to shut it down, in effect.

Full disclosure: it is probably fair to call me a "friend of the show" for the Lee Rodgers and Melanie Morgan Show, the program under attack. I am not a disinterested observer.
