credit where credit is due

Until a few weeks ago, AAR was carried by 1390 in Burlington. The station
(calls were WVAA while it carred AAR, I think, but may now have changed)
obviously doesn't have the signal of WVMT or WDEV (although WDEV may not do
so well in Burlington) but 1390 ought to do OK in Burlington, especially
during the day. However, if nobody is aware of the programming, I guess you
can't really expect many people to tune in.
