Re: "former" college stations

This always mystified me.

With all the effort it takes to get a station on the air, the application
process, the engineering, the college beauracracy, the funding, staffing...

With all that, it amazes me that someone would allow a station to go
dark...and hand in the license.

Anyone share any information on Merrimack College's WMMC...and their demise?
I think it was on 90.7?  (Phillips Acadamy is 91.7, right?)
