You know THIS scenario seems to make sense!  

First  of all WXRV/ aka WHAV  DOESN'T have a huge mortgage on it like
WEGQ, etc.  (i.e.17-20 million $$$'s).  

Secondly, the area/locale, as was mentioned. 

Third, it would put Pat Costa's fledling little AM network outa business
, having a superior BIG signal FM (and Stereo, mind you!).

Cuz WXRV's management isn't accountable to ratings, agencies, research
or anything besides the PD, GM and the sales manager's opinion.

At least WAAF, WVBF (now WROR), WEGQ and WBOS have a chance of being
heard in that metro!

Oh?  What are you billing?  Considering that there is virtually no
expense in running a station in Haverill.  (Besides buying CD's at
Strawberrys, Sam Goody's or Tower...)
