Here in Maine, one of Clear Channel's stations, WIGY 97.5 in Madison (sports
format) frequently has an atrocious sound quality that makes it sound like
it's broadcasting from inside a galvanized trash can or something.  I've
asked myself the same question: Does anybody listen to this?  It's hard to
believe this company has such a "Why bother" attitude about so many of its
smaller stations.
