What about WFCC?

Have you yet obtained and read a copy of the trust document? I have not, but
since I am not an attorney, it would not likely be as meaningful to me as it
would be to Joe. However, I thought the trust required that WCRB maintain a
classical-music format for 99 years. Unless the document required that WCRB
remain on 102.5, remain licensed to Waltham, and/or remain under the
ownership of the trust, wouldn't a classical format on a full Class B FM
serving the Boston market with the call letters WCRB be likely to meet the
conditions of the trust?
