OK.  Ignore my earlier post.  I did not know about the deal.  Is J.J. buying 
1400 WIDE Biddeford as part of the deal? He couldn't wait to get rid of it 
the first time he had it.  It would be a natural fit for the sports radio 
network he has on WJAE and WJJB.

Is J.J. gets WRED, another good purchase and a good simulcast partner of WRED 
would be 95.9 WXGL Topsham.  Putting together the two rimshotters (at 95.5 
and 95.9) would give him good coverage of the Portland market and together 
the signals might become commercially viable.  It wouldn't surprise me if 
he's already thought of that...
