   The article mentions that the new owner of WESX wasn't aware of the fact 
this would be the first time since 1939 that the game won't be on the radio, 
and if he had been told sooner he could have made arrangements to get the 
game on the air. Is it too late for him to do something to air the game? The 
article also mentions that a former WESX staffer, Rick Moore will be 
broadcasting the game on a live webstream on his website. Could Otto Miller, 
the new WESX owner make a deal with Moore to simulcast the webfeed of the 
game for those who have no computer access?
