 I'll be interested to see what WBOT does in the New Bedford book as well.

I didn't think there would be a separate New Bedford book; after all, there 
are only three stations there (the two FMs and the AM).

How "small" of markets do books go down to; IIRC, New Bedford has about 
100,000 population. Brockton has about 60,000 (??). Would Brockton, with 
three stations, also get its own book.

In addition, it doesn't surprise me that WBOT is pulling numbers in 
Providence; their signal south of the city is close enough to get into 
Providence and Providence doesn't really have an urban station.
