Well, although the management is assiduously promoting the station (on-air
only, as far as I can tell) as Bloomberg for _Boston_ (perhpas to make
Bloomberg happy) all of the non-network commercials (such as they are) seem
to be for businesses in the Concord area. From that, I infer that Crecelius
et al are not _totally_ detached from reality. That's a start anyhow. I
suppose they could mount a sales effort in Waltham, which is the most
populous community in the area in which WADN has a somewhat competitive
signal. I've never noticed any commercials for Waltham businesses except on
"Easy Ed" Shannon's weekend-morning adult-standards shows. And Ed only has
one Waltham sponsor, Wal-Lex Hardware. Ed sells the time on his shows
himself (although it's not a brokered-time arrangement), but as far as I
know, he does not sell other time on the the station.
