On my system, Digital Music is free with the Digital Cable package.  It also
offers much more variety than would be provided by pulling in distant FM
signals -- most of which play the same 12 songs that I can hear on the local

A friend of mine worked at WWMR in the mid-1980's.  Living in Rumford was

radio through their system.  The system provided almost every FM signal of
any strength from Bangor to southern New Hampshire.
