report.  At the time, Brown Broadcasting denied it had any intention
of selling 'BRU.  But in the crazy financial dreamworld that is
radio at the turn of the millennium, anything could happen.  So...either
Rob's midwestern friend is still hearing the echoes of that misguided
report B&C put out -- or he knows something the rest of us don't just
