I was in the Tri-Cities area in April.  WDCD and WPTR(FM) both have
Christian formats; I think the FM is music-oriented, while the AM is
oriented around teaching/preaching-type programming.

Crawford had a nice thing going when it resurrected WPTR with the adult
standards format.  Too bad it was discontinued.
