On a similar note, over the weekend I got to hear the latest incarnation of
WARE. Outside of AM drive, they don't seem to even make any pretenses of
being anything but a jukebox.  Caught AM drive Monday...seems like they got
someone named Gary James to voice track a dozen or so generic breaks which
get dropped in every couple of songs.  They also run the same exact
newscast every half hour..voiced by a rather wooden-sounding announcer who
seemed like he was doing a bad John Cameron Swayze imitation (didn't catch
his name)...I heard it 3 times.  Interesting from a radio-geek standpoint,
but doesn't sound like something that will attract many listeners.  Spot
load was close to zilch.
