What I don't understand is why would you shake up two groups of listeners (Country and Classical)?  Why couldn't 99.5 stay country (which it has been for 10+ years) and 102.5 stay Classical?  (I guess a deeper question is: What is with radio making changes for the sake of change?)

Does 102.5 offer better coverage into Boston or vice versa?  One of our engineers on-list could probably answer that, and maybe that's the reasoning.  But change just for the sake of change will only frustrate radio listeners more than they already are when it comes to the state of radio today?
