Re: WBUR Connection

Yes, some of these radio claims are so bogus.    Reminds me of WLAM's (Maine) 
top-of-hour slogan:  "....a Maine-Owned Company".    Uh.... I thought that 
less than 49% owned by various people in New England wouldn't support such a 
claim.  Well now, they have amended it to:  "....A Maine Company."

Well, I guess that's totally true.   Actually, after buying WJTO, I set up a 
Maine Corporation called "Blue Jey Broadcasting Company" with me as the 100% 
stockholder.  I am not a Mainer, but I COULD say:  "....a Maine Company."

My point is, is that almost every station owner(s) in Maine, or anywhere 
else,  incorporates, and is  "....a Maine Company."

Smoke & Mirrors, everyone....

 Excuse me? Are they intentionally NOT mentioning that
 WBZ and WTKK exist? (And for awhile there was WMEX
 as well; you could also include WBUR, etc.) This would
 be like Coca-Cola saying that Pepsi and RC Cola didn't
 exist; that Coca-Cola is the only manufacturer of cola
 in the world.  >>
