AHHH  the beauty of a collective bargaining agreement!  Under the AFTRA
contract (that expired on 12/31/00 but is still in effect) any music
program originating in Boston must be performed by an AFTRA member.  That
eliminates the use of "button pushers", subcontractors or even locally
programmed hard drives.  ;-)

As far as comparing them to Cool 96.5 or WCAP and their use of
automation, WODS is still a leader in generating revenue in the Boston
ADI so a compelling case can not be made by management to allow such a
thing to happen.
