I find non-coms are a bit too "out there" for my taste.
While I agree that much of today's radio (as Bruce would say) is "57
channels and nothing on" and we certainly could use more players in most
any market, I think "fierce competition between locally owned stations" is
about as likely as Bradlees, Caldor & Zayre coming back from the dead and
reclaiming market share lost to Walmart, Home Depot and the like. Ain't
gonna happen. Times have changed.
