But let's be honest here... none of those stations really have
appropriate formats for running any kind of sports.  The Sox games on
'CIB were probably turning off quite a few of their listeners (even
though it did make it easy to identify 'CIB on tropo up here).  It
might make a bit more sense on WXTK...
