It certainly looks like I was wrong.  If it was a stunt and they were working 
the newspaper, I would think they would mention all the calls and complaints 
they were getting from listeners.  It's still weird that they let the morning 
man go on about the format change like he did.  Saying good-bye is one thing, 
but letting talent knock the change for a whole show is weird.

I'm a sports fan too, but I think Maine radio is now over saturated with 
sports.  Most of the area covered by 95.5 can pick up 96.7, which is part of 
the 93.5/96.7/97.5/107.9 "the Score" simulcast.  The Red Sox are also on 
102.5 out of Camden which has a very strong signal along the Coast.  In the 
car, you can even listen to 102.5 in Portland.  In the Lewiston/Auburn area, 
you have 92.7 WOXO Norway which carries the Sox and Celtics.  Plus, the 
existing 1440/900 simulcast has great coverage of southern Maine during the 
day and covers Portland to Brunswick OK at night.
