102.5 to Spanish? Nahhh.....

99.5 is second-adjacent to 99.1. I think that precludes 99.5's moving any
further south. The owner of WPLM-FM (daughter of the Mr Campbell who founded
WPLM AM&FM and Campbell Sports Network, which at one time held of the Red
Sox broadcast rights) has reportedly repeatedly refused very lucrative
offers for WPLM-FM--and even for WPLM (AM). She apparently won't sell at any
price. WPLM-FM plus WKLB would have very nice combined coverage but neither
one has a competitive signal in downtown Boston.
