AFAIK, in that market they have been on weak signals, keep switching 
stations, some of them daytimers, etc..  I'de be surprised if many 
people even know where to find them on the dial.  Have they done any 
advertising, or do they just expect people (many of whom don't even 
consider AM) to find them while tuning around?

Regardless of the potential audience, there still needs to be 
marketing and a good, consistent signal.
