Q: Its an Internet Only Station? 
A: Yes. The Cave operates as an internet-only station. This is done for several reasons, all of which are designed to allow us to provide you our beloved current and future listeners with a more independent and authentic program free from the shackles of FCC and other governmental oversight that limit the scope of opinion heard on over-the-air radio.

Q: Are There Commercials? 
A: Yes as with any professional radio station - digital or over-the-air, commercials are the lifeblood that allow it to continue to operate.  With that said, the Cave understands that the patience level of people in general, and especially online is much lower than it used to be, and certainly than what it is when you're listening to over-the-air radio in your car; after all in that case what choice do you have?  To that end, all locally produced shows that air on the Cave - Right now those are the Gary Ayd Show & The nbAYD Show - will never have more than 2-consecutive minutes of advertising.

Q: How is Gary Different From any Other Host and Why Should I listen to Him and not the Big NYC Stations?
A: That's a great question! Gary is a national radio veteran who has lived most of his life in Orange County. He grew up in Goshen, currently lives in Middletown and he understands how Orange County is different than NYC in a way those other stations simply don't and can't.  In short, Gary brings the same level of talent and radio acumen as the NYC hosts with the local knowledge and passion for the area that make his show and the Cave uniquely Orange County!
