Targeted Lists for Radio Talk Shows from Fran Silverman

I have been a Fran Silverman fan for years and especially so after her tome of a book  (published by Macfarland) on resources for talk show radio came out. But now she has a series of smaller book (reasonable prices!) that target specific interest, markets, genres.
