@farmerman,
I will be 80 in July. This proves that many of my generation are world class ass holes.

@farmerman,
I heard that on the radio the other night. It amazed me. I expected better of the mature audience.

@farmerman,
I would not know since I do not listen to his show.

But apparently, you are expert in the matter and must be a listener.

@Woiyo9,
Is that your attempt at being derisive?

Quote:
The audience "averages 67 years of age." A little ageism there, but let's check the Talker's research. The audience breakdown shows that 63% of the talk radio listening audience is between 24 and 64 years old. Twenty-eight percent of the listeners are older than 55 and of that group only 7% are over 65. Nine percent and younger than 15. The numbers for my show skew even younger. Clearly I'm no math whiz, but how can the average age of talk radio listeners be 67 when only 7% of the listeners are over 65? This sounds rather like the way liberals and Democrats compute poverty statistics. It also sounds like Sinton's a liar. Poor guy .. just can't get over his failures.

@McGentrix,
Im only reporting the aricle in Van Fair. You are reporting something which may not be counterevidence. Van Fair quoted mean age. THey didnt break down sub percentages to try to visually skew. If 63% are betwen 24 and 64, what are the percentages? Id like to see a cumulative frequency graph from the "book".
Im cerain that your source isnt lying, but Im also certain that Van Fair isnt lying either

@BillRM,
The vast majority of "trust fund" babies over in the Dupont lands of Delaware, listen to Limbaugh. They are people whove NEVER done a day of work in their lives but have amassed trust funds of 100's of millions each. They ride polo ponies, stop at the WHip for lunch and listen to El Porco Grande while their horses are cared for by their feetpeople.

I'm sure the marketers have details of the income levels very well documented. Shouldn't be all that difficult to find if one is interested.

@McGentrix,
As McG pointed out (or linked to), this 67 year average doesn't hold water. The average listener I know is mid-40's.
