This is a common misunderstanding. NPR doesn't own any stations. They
sell their product to "affiliate" stations. AFAIK it's mostly (all?)
news and talk, etc., not music programs. Please correct me if I'm
wrong. It is up to the individual stations to decide how corporate vs.
how off the wall/adventurous they wish to be with their music
programming. If the stations where I volunteer are any indication, most
of the music programming you hear on non-commercial FM stations are
locally produced; syndicated shows like Echoes and HoS not withstanding.
