My question is not about what the BCN people think about this, my question is 
what the BRU people think about this.  BRU and FNX have virtually identical 
playlists, the same "we're the cutting edge alternative station" mentality, 
and both have been around for a long long time.  The 103.7 transmitter 
probably covers even more area than 95.5 as well.  So it looks like Mindich 
is going all-out to take on Providence's heritage alternative station.  I 
wonder how much damage FNX will do to BRU's numbers.

The one upside to this is that anyone in the Providence and eastern 
Connecticut areas who listens strictly to alternative will finally have 
something to listen to on Sundays, at least after FNX's jazz show ends at
