Way to go. That is what local radio can do that the big guns can't. 
Bringing back those "Hurricane Bob" memories when Joe Corcoran, myself 
and others went 24/7, and just let the phones tell the story.  I have 
some airchecks of that and it you can hear the signal problems with the 
high wind and hops from the grid to the generator and back.

This storm could break '78 records...but we know that 78s were more 
fragile than 33.3s...
