If I'd only Googled beforehand ...

>From NERW, May 28, 1999:
"One bit of RHODE ISLAND news: WBUR-FM is applying for a Newport
translator on 91.5, which would bring a solid public radio signal to
Aquidneck Island for the first time. But under current translator
rules, the 91.5 would have to relay Boston-based WBUR instead of
Providence-based affiliate WRNI (1290), even though WRNI actually
offers news and traffic for Rhode Island instead of Massachusetts.
Sounds like a great case for a waiver, if you ask us -- have we
mentioned lately that we think the translator rules are out of sync
with reality?"
