And if the new format lasts long enough, it will be considered a "heritage" station by a later 
generation.  To you, the WRKO top-40 format was "heritage."  To me, it replaced WNAC and 
the Yankee Network, and THAT was a Heritage station.  To some older people, WNAC's 
move to 680 liquidated WLAW Lawrence, and THAT was a heritage station -- much as 
WEEI's move to 850 liquidated WHDH in more recent times.
