RE: Station ID's (was wxlo uses..)

Well I didn't like it one bit! It was the only hit music within range unless
you could get (on a good day) B97 or Z107 from Bangor. From the kids I met
up there, it's what they had to listen to, not by choice but that's the only
halfway-decent station up there.. ~adam

You're not supposed to like it.  The target audience for that format is a 32
year old woman.  When I was PD, we had more
listners than every other station on the dial combined up there.  It's not
what it was for sure, but they still do fairly well.
