I talked with David Collins (GM of Mega-Boston) on Monday and told him of
the transmitter outage.  He said "I just found out about that this morning -
it will be back on later today <meaning last Monday> - but it is still off.
Rumors I've heard are that the ESPN programming is just a day or 2 away from
starting on both stations.

The Lawrence stick on a roof in Lawrence is still getting it done?  
Who'd a thunkit?  The Lowell site is fairly new by radio standards. I have
to agree that Mega is playing out the string on a shoestring. 
WeLieLikeHeck is in for a challenge capturing local dollars for bird sports
in a market with some of the best sports talk in the biz only 26 miles SSE.
