New Maine AM?

I checked out the website.  Um . . . interesting, to say the least.  "An odd
collection of shows" would seem to be a considerable understatement.

I wonder if the proliferation of talk radio programs, all-news formats,
Christian broadcasting, may be pointing to a renascence of small-town
AM.  The two new AM stations in the Bangor area seem to be doing well, and
Augusta's "Kids 1340" (the old WFAU), oriented toward elementary school and
pre-teen children, has an enjoyable and rather unique format, from what I've
heard of it.
