Wait a minute, is that legal for them to do? How can a non-comm (educational) 
station be running a plugola, in that form, on its airwaves? I guess that 
gets into the whole underwriting issue.

Does St. John's have a radio station at all (even carrier current) which the 
games could air on, at least home games? (And what organization are the Kings 
affiliated with?)

What a contrast. You have the Lowell Spinners playing in a gorgeous ballpark 
in Lowell and you have other teams in this league playing in college
