AZradio.net schedule grid updated

I finally got around to updating azradio.net, making corrections to the dynamic AJAX powered schedule grid.

Was discouraged from working on the site after many unsuccessful attempts to get azradio.net indexed by the google-bot. Finally, it's popping up in Google search results, and hence, I became inspired to update the interactive schedule grid.

All of the Valley talk stations are chronicled, except for KPXQ 1360 AM, which I intend on including too. With the informercial hell that KFNX 1100 AM has descended into, I've severely curtailed listings for them — only a few shows are showing, since as a general rule, I don't wish to include informercial programs as part of the program grid offering here.

Finally, I've really got a great deal of work remaining, and one of the first items on the agenda is improving the schedule update process. It's not that it's excruciating laborious, as it's a simple text delimited file that has the start and end times for all the programs and is fairly simple to edit — the validation and subsequent error correction can be thorny, especially when trying to correctly wrap the weekend shows so everything balances. Additionally, I wish to add a AJAX powered search facility too.
