Headline news! Philadelphia is a cultural desert

I like to listen to classical music in my car. WQXR was my all-the-time station in New Jersey. I figured there would be a station that would meet my needs in Philadelphia. No! NO CLASSICAL MUSIC AT ALL! All they have in the way of public radio is dismal NPR, self-satisfied twits yammering on and on, day and night, in their know-it-all voices. All the music stations either play head-banging stuff or soppy Christian music. I can't even find a decent country and western station.

I am outraged! Philadelphia has a world-class orchestra. Don't some of the people there like to listen to classical music? Or has satellite radio taken over the world while I wasn't looking? Or what?
