None of the Infinity stations here are underperforming.  They all do pretty
well within their target demos, and they all generate sizable revenue.  WBMX
has done well challenging WXKS-FM for 25-34 females, and John Lander has done
well with 25-54 women.  WZLX and WODS also do well 25-54, although ODS is
slipping a bit in that demo.  BCN as it is has been a solid revenue stream
with Stern and the Pats, and then there's BZ.  Infinity has a very strong
cluster here--no weak links in the bunch.  Blowing up any of these stations
doesn't seem to make too much business sense.
