I've not heard BRI on the air recently either. They were regularly relayed by Laser. I think this year is their 30th anniversary.

Roger Davis is scheduled for a Monday-Friday 4-hour shift in the afternoon on Big L (1395 kHz). That would explain why there is little BRI at the moment. However, tuning into the Big L webstream there is just nonstop music. Most of the streams listed on the website are offline.
