Worcester Radio

I've gotta chime in here.  Obviously you haven't listened to WXLO too much.
Although we do actively recognize our Metrowest listeners now on-air, we still
are a Worcester/Central Mass. radio station. Our morning show is local, with a
focus on area news and information, including local traffic and weather. We do
forecasts twice an hour at approximately :23 and :53 outside of morning drive
around the clock, including weekends.  Unlike WSRS, the Fox and the AM's in
town, WXLO is live and local 24/7.

As far as AAF is concerned, Worcester kissed them goodbye several years ago.
The studios were in Westboro--not exactly Worcester proper, and their focus
has been on Boston for quite some time.
