And, in other words, be exactly like WBRS, WUML, WZBC, WMBR, WMFO, WUMD, 
WRBB and WERS?  And those are just the ones that are (theoretically) 
listenable while in Cambridge.  Never mind the dozens of other 
college/high-school radio stations, and pirate stations, in and around 

If I wanted to listen to that kinda of free-form crap, I'd listen to one 
of the existing stations.  And if anyone wanted to listen to those 
stations, then they'd show up in the Arbitrons/RRC's.
