That may be true (i.e. the combined share). You would have to admit the 
"footprint" 50kW 99.1 makes is much larger than the "footprint" that "1390 
WPLM Plymouth (5000[W] DA-2): Satellite smooth jazz" makes!
I have to take exception to the 44+ for the FM side. Those qualatative 
remarks were using the 12+ numbers and the FM format encompasses young and 
old as well!
