I don't know, I find that I can't stand WMJX for long periods of time.  All the songs tend to 
sound too much alike.  It doesn't offend me in small doses, but if I had to listen to it for a 
long time, I think I'd get very annoyed.

And I suspect teenagers might feel that way even more so.  Kinda reminds me of the story a 
few years back where a store owner didn't like teenagers hanging around outside his store, 
so he started to play a steady diet of Frank Sinatra in the area where the teens were hanging 
out.  Presto!  No teens!
