The Portsmouth-Dover-Rochester market is rated #117 by Arbitron.  Manchester
is rated somewhere in the 180's.  

Since when does the Seacoast have less competition from Boston?  WBCN is the
fourth most listened to station in the market.  WRKO, WBZ, WEGQ, WXKS and WJMN
all pull in respectable numbers here.
