Libertarians on the Air! in the Mountain and Desert States

The hosts of the talk shows and other programs on the mushrooming list below are significant because: They're either self-proclaimed as "libertarian" or "Libertarian", or, if they're marked with an asterisk (*), they've simply been known to advocate more libertarian ideas than most and/or support libertarian candidates. Self-labelled or not, the hosts listed here demonstrate they can rise above the pack, see beyond short-sighted "conventional wisdom" and (even the funny ones) take reason -- and liberty -- very seriously.
