Re: Evidently, WMass don't matter

    Please lighten up, my friend!  While the BRI is
geared mainly towards a audience, East of Worcester,
your thoughts on radio and television broadcasting in
Western New England are just as important to us, as
readers.  I myself am no stranger to Western Mass..  I
lived in Great Barrington and Westfield for many
years. I was a jock at Westfield State College's
WSKB-FM (89.5) from 1978-1980.  I have many friends
who work at some of the Springfield area's TV and
radio stations.  In fact, I plan to be an "in-studio"
guest on Jeff Barna's Saturday Night Oldies Show on (a
station YOU should be VERY familiar with)
WCCH-FM/103.5 in Holyoke, when the transmitter
situation is fixed over the next few weeks. In fact, I
will see to it to offer my engineering assistance to
WCCH IF they need it at ANYTIME over the next few
weeks.  And yes, 'CCH will be in Stereo and will sound
better than ever.   
     So, Adam.... please do not take it to heart. 
Western Mass. does matter.  Just because there are no
comments on some of your postings, does not
necessarily mean that no one is interested.  73!
