Well, the sucess of the present incarnation of WCRB has yet to be seen.

However, WCRB (102.5) was considered one of the most sucessful Clasical 
stations in the country.

The same factors that work for pop radio brought WCRB it's highest ratings 

102.5 enjoyed it's most sucessful years when it increased it's repetition 
and started playing shorter peices.

99.5 seems to be following the same recipe, albeit a little more "clunkily".
