I'd be curious how much "local" programming WPEP airs in the first 
place.  Most of these low-powered AMs have long since become almost totally 
bird-fed.  Makes for a good story about those evil out-of-town owners, but 
hardly accurate reporting.  I'd also be curious about how many people in 
Taunton are even aware that the station exists.
