I like the reference to all the financially failing radio
stations that existed prior to consolidation. These would
include all the Class IV am's and am daytimers, plus
marginal major-market am's like WWZN. The real problem
is the number of Class I and IA 50k am's and full-power FM's
in the hands of just a few owners. These were never going to fail
utterly; they would have been bought at fair-market prices
by a multitude of owners and made profitable one way or another.
