All this sounds applicable to the general case.  I still feel in this 
case the generalities may not apply.  This station is more of a rich 
boy's toy, he's gonna play what he wants to hear.  And if you don't 
want to play with him he can just take his ball and go home.

Does anyone know what has or will happen to the rather unique record 
(CD?) collection?  Or did they just format the hard drive and it all
