The then-owners of 850, American Radio Systems, already had two AM
stations, and under the rules of the time were not legally permitted
to buy another one. It wasn't a matter of 850 being "such a big
improvement over 590", it was a matter of the programming then on 590
making good money and the owners of 850 making the investment to
purchase that programming.
