A longform article about morning radio show hosts' conference

Some time in the past 10 years, but likely in 2005-2008, I read a long magazine article that I'd like to find again. The reporter hung around a conference, or convention, of morning zoo radio show hosts. Discussions revolved around stunts and gimmicks, how to deal with the early hours while being consistently fake & peppy, and the like. I seem to recall the author noted the number of Hawaiian shirts present and how male-dominated the scene was. The conference was a huge party, but with some depressed-seeming attendees. This article might've been from Esquire, GQ, or Rolling Stone. I might have seen it on MetaFilter, even! It was not an Onion article. Googling this is proving incredibly challenging.

Good streaming nighttime talk radio?

I subscribe to plenty of podcasts, but sometimes have a hankering for live radio. So I'm looking for some entertaining talk radio to listen to while I fall asleep. Ideally I'd like to find some local (as in not nationally syndicated; specific location isn't important) radio stations that stream call-in talk shows around midnight Eastern time. I realize talk shows skew to the right politically, and I'm OK with thoughtful shows with a conservative bias, but not OK with ultra-right-wing screamers (e.g., Rush Limbaugh and clones). And I'm not too interested in shows that focus solely on politics. [more inside]

Lets take some calls, on the air. Hello? Hello? Okay, next caller?

Almost invariably, on talk radio programs, when we go to the phones, the first caller isn't there. How come? [more inside]

Are there portable satellite radio receivers?

What with all the brouhaha over Howard Stern's move to saltellite radio, I've become interested in this service. But I listen to music almost exclusively on-the-go. So I'd only subscribe if I could listen on an iPod-like device. Are there any small, portable satellite radio receivers? I tried Googling, but I'm too ignorant about receivers to understand the results.
