Another possible format is given by Mary-Claire van Leunen in a super
little book, _A Handbook for Scholars_ (Oxford Univ. Press, 1992) -- which
is directed toward those writing and publishing in academia but has a LOT
of excellent tips for any writer, including a whole chapter on "hard
references." She recommends the following for radio and television

Call letters of the station or abbreviated name of the network, with
location of a local station; name of the show; air date; a short
description if the subject matter isn't self-evident; and a note on
availability of tapes, transcripts, etc. A couple of examples:

KXLM radio, Kansas City, Missouri.
_Fiddling Around_, 10 April 1981. Interview with Blind Joe Crockett.
The station has no copy.

WRYE-TV, Macon, Georgia.
_11 O'Clock News_, 30 May 1981. George Wallace on the food-stamp program.
Dope #328.
