I think KDHX is one of the most important cultural icons that St. Louis has to offer and I equally enjoy your show. KDHX should be the model for every city.
But....I must take exception to a comment you made on your show today regarding the financial support that the Canadian government gives to its artists and your statement that that is the way it should be here in the US. I truly believe it is the goverment's role to guarantee that anyone has the ability to express themselves in any way they choose, but I disagree that it is government's role to financially support that endeavor. If someone has something that is appealing to people, then those people should financially support it. It is not our government's responsibilty to support everyone; there is too much of that going on.
