Has anyone approached Yale's radio stations about covering the 
Ravens?   After all, they've got two frequencies - 1340AM for freeform and 
94.3FM for urban contemporary.   Both appear to have good New Haven coverage.

Of course, this is Yale we're talking about here.  But I have no idea how 
much control the students have over the actual air product - if it's a lot 
it might be workable if you have a sympathetic student executive 
board...and according to WYBC's site they seem to do a fair amount of Yale 
sports coverage already...
