<< While in Rochester, NH, I scanned the dial to find 94.3 calling themselves 
 Portland's Alternative Station(?)  They would play one or two songs and then 
 there would be dead air.  Does any body know about this station? >>

94.3 is WCYY Biddeford and is simulcast on 93.9 WCYI Lewiston.  Programming 
comes from a harddrive at Fuller/Jeffrey's studios at 1 City Center in 
Portland.  I believe the liner is Portland's New Rock Alternative.

I worked at both stations during earlier incarnations.  My first full time 
job in radio was doing afternoon news and the evening shift at 93.9 WAYU in 
Lewiston in 1986 when the station was country, located on Lisbon Street in 
Lewiston and I was a senior in high school.  I did afternoons at 94.3 WYJY 
Biddeford in 1987-88 before the station increased power.  The studios were on 
Main Street in Biddeford, the format was AC and Chuck Igo was the PD.
