Just an FYI to all....what is attributed to me below the "original message"
line is not FROM me...

My comments refered to asking if Henley owned any Radio Stations, and if so
does he allow the "artistic license" for his properties that he complains
about in others....and if he owns none, and with his (presumed I admit) $$
resources why doesn't he buy a few....
