Re: Anyone notice WPLM-FM cumes in 3 markets?

Congratulations on the numbers Bill.  Although I'm not a big listener of your
station, the times I have tuned in, there seems to be a nice balance between the
traditional "nostalgia" titles and the more contemporary ones.  It is definitly
more listenable than the satellite driven fare at the AM's in Boston and
Providence.  I wonder how much the format being on FM rather than AM helped the
station in those two markets?  As you well know, the stock radios in Crown
Victoria's do have FM :)  Seriously, your station is filling an underserved
demo, 35-64, quite well.  Continued success to you.
