non-profit AND commercial radio

I mentioned the WBUR/Lydon feud to a Yahoo aircheck
club I belong to, and the leader of the club, who is
originally from Chicago, pointed out that Chicago's
WFMT is both non-profit AND commercial. He said that
when their license was donated to a non-profit
corporation in the 50s, they didn't bother to change
the license from commercial to non-commercial.

Thus WFMT listeners hear requests for donations,
followed by (low-key) commercials. For more on WFMT,
see the following article from the Chicago Sun-Times
earlier this week (look for: Donation bonanza bowls
