WHOB until his new team was ready to debut (the stadium etc still needs to
be built) then put his Manchester team on the air.  Given the attitude the
City of Lowell has toward Weber's lease at the ballpark in Lowell I would be
surprised if Weber didn't sell the Spinners once the Manchester team is
created, or if he keeps the Spinners I'm guessing he'd move them out of

What's the problem between Weber and the City of Lowell?  It would be a
shame to see the team move.  Since team moved to Lowell, it has been one of
the most successful teams in the NY-Penn League.  Last year, only Brooklyn
and Aberdeen had higher attendance.

By the way:  It was announced this week that Independent Baseball is coming
back to Bangor, Maine this year.  A Northeast League team will play at
Husson College this summer.  Anyone up there have anything to speculate
about radio coverage for the team?  WZON has the Sox and the new Clear
Channel Sport Station has the Sea Dogs.  Maybe Dan Priestley's new AM
station could pick up the games.
