I agree.  I doubt WCSH would trade ads during the news with WLOB.  WCSH has
no trouble selling those spots and they're not cheap.

It was OK.  It was a quick 15 second spot and was mostly a shot of Bud
delivering the message about his show.  It was a few seconds into the ad
before I realized what it was.

On a related note: the link below will take you to a letter in today's
Lewiston Sun Journal lamenting the loss of local radio in Lewiston/Auburn.
I worked with the author of the letter at WLAM, way back in 1987.  Our new
co-worker at 420 Western Avenue, Donna Steele, was there at that time, too.
