   According to an article in today's (11/3) Lowell Sun, the Lowell Spinners 
radio broadcasts will be returning to WCAP next season. WCAP had been the 
radio home of the Spinners for a few years until last season, when WLLH 
acquired the games. The Sun article quoted Spinners' officials as saying the 
new owners of WCAP, Clark Smidt & Sam Poulten approached the team to discuss 
bring the broadcasts back to the station.

   Also, the article mentions that WCAP has expanded it's sports coverage by 
carrying some U Mass Lowell Hockey games, picking up the coverage from U 
Mass Lowell's WUML (91.5) with Bob Ellis on play by play. WCAP continues to 
carry Lowell Devils AHL Hockey.

   The article also mentions that the transfer of control of WCAP from 
Maurice Cohen to Clark Smidt & Sam Poulten is slated to take place in the 
coming week.

   Unfortunetly the Sun article is not on line as of now. However, here's a 
link to a press release on the Spinners' website announcing the team's 
return to WCAP:
