I just took a look at the list of stations (http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/cws/schedule/radio_affiliates.jsp) on the White Sox Radio Network, and it looks like we've added some stations. I don't recall us having stations in Michigan, Arkansas, and Missouri. However, we still do not have affiliates in Springfield, Decatur, or Peoria. We have to penetrate those markets.

In the 1960s and early 1970s, the Sox were broadcast on KXKW in Lafayette, Louisiana, where I was growing up. I'm not sure why. I think it was because we had an office of "Friendly Bob Adams", which as I recall was the top sponsor.

Michigan I can sort of see because it's close to the Chicago area, but why these two?

They have a programming hole to fill after Imus and Franken each left the air.

I don't think some of these stations carry every single game, I tried the Monticello Indiana station last summer, and the game was not on, so I had to listen to a very static WSCR when I was boating down at Lake Shafer.

In the 1960's the Sox had one of the largest radio networks in MLB. They had stations broadcasting their games throughout the upper midwest and as far south as stations in Jackson, Mississippi and Sarasota, Florida (Sarasota of course for obvious reasons...)

You can usually get 670 down there pretty static free.
