Curious to hear from you about the REAL differences b/w the two signals,
e.g., average salaries, union vs. non-union, projected
time-frames/life-spans of their formats and other markers??  My guess is a
long life for XRV's format, not so for BOS.  Wages must be miles apart
(barely making it-money vs. decent house in the 'burbs).  I was a ptimer at
the old HDH when ZOU did a studio swap with BOS to Stuart St.  I recall
word that BOSers were paid way under the COZ/ZOUers who then were under a
very nice union contract with then-sister HDH.  Not sure.
The results should beg a curious point: if the differences are THAT vast,
is the quality, as well?
