I was in the Fitchburg area two weeks ago and intermittently listened. WEIM
does live programming in the morning and syndicated talk in the afternoon
and evening, interspersed with Red Sox games and, as you say, some "AC-ish
oldies." It's the closest thing to an old-fashioned full-service AM station
that one can find anywhere, and what they do they do well --- good local
news department, a morning show devoted largely to music and discussion of
local issues, and --- interestingly --- a show for kids on Saturday mornings
(at least I think they're still running it), featuring teenybopper music,
interviews, and call-in requests. It's a well-run outfit and, according to
everything I've heard or read, modestly successful. The new owners would be
wise not to change a thing. By the way, the morning-drive host, "Ray C."
Chalifoux, has been there since I was in high school, 40 years ago.
