Let's not "diss" the 99.5 signal too badly....


It was competitive as WSSH-99.5...

It is competitive as WKLB-99.5...

Classical officianados will find it...

Although a low-power repeater...quality online stream......and a deal to
rebroadcast them on HD on a Boston stick (96.9 HD-2 which is classical now)
would be some good options/alternatives.

(BTW...Since Smythe controls Gr. Media...making a deal to rebroadcast the
station on 96.9 HD-2 might be plausible.)
