I don't know that I'd use the word "prevents" - anybody can do anything, of 
course, and probably will. But there's a strong incentive to get there 
before the other guy does, if only to prevent disasters like the Mass 
Country Conversion of 1993. Ah yes - those halcyon days of WBCS fighting 
WKLB-FM for a 2 share... :-)

In any event, it sounds as though Mix is doing this ONLY on the weekends, 
for now, unlike some of the other hot ACs (WRQX Washington, KPLZ Seattle, 
WTMX Chicago) that are incorporating Jack-like format elements all week 
long while trying to keep their established identities.
