  • Stability of the programming schedule
  • Accuracy of the station's web site,
  • Recorded Show is not available 24/7 or via podcast for free from the distributor,
  • Quality of the streaming audio
  • Interesting show for "out of market" listeners
  • Limited availability of the show even if it doesn't fit the above criteria
