Information on these kinds of things is traditionally sketchy; if you can fill any holes or have updated information, please don't hesitate to contact me.

NOTE: Stations listed on this database may or may not be still on the air. The 'Time On Air' column only references how long the station had been on the air at the time of contact. Don't assume that just because a station's listed here means it's no longer transmitting.
