It's certainly possible. But I hear a talkshow(with really bad
sound quality call-in lines) in French Creole on 1260 tonight. I dont
know if this is still Salem's effort or the new owners have already
arranged a leasing agreement for 1260(they are even airing
advertising, so I assume this is a pretty organized operation like
Radio Concorde)...Isnt AM 1330 leased exclusively by Radio Concorde
