Hmmm.... Not doubting you at all. This bit of info I found on a piece of station
propaganda. (A calendar WKNE put out this year. A little "value added" package for
advertisers, mostly. IMO the worst two words in broadcasting are "value added",
unless, of course, you are in sales.) I had no idea if the dates were truly right
when I posted them, but those are the dates they have posted on their 1998
calendars. If they're incorrect, don't THEY look dumb.... <g>

Also, I never knew you were French, Donna. I always had my suspicions, though....
