No, not at all.  The sale went through in August, but it had been in the 
works since June.  I am sure that there were some promos about "the new 
WMEX" on the air, but by all accounts, nothing really changed format-wise 
till the Richmond Brothers officially came on board and began putting in 
more top 40 music, which got some of the middle of the road d.j.'s very 
upset and they started leaving.
