 The Kennebunkport-based radio company has signed a contract to buy all of 
Clear Channel's Maine radio stations, said Bruce Biette, of Blueberry 
Biette said the purchase price is $11 million.
$11 million seems like a low price.  I wonder what Clear Channel paid for 
the stations.  I am betting a lot more.
 For the record -- Biette was GM of Saga's Portland stations when I was 
fired in 1993.  Not that I hold a grudge.  ;-)   <<

Bruce was also with WIGY during your formative years in Bowdoinham.  Was he 
"Steve Rogers" on the air?  I know he was the voice behind the Romanow's 
Furniture spots.
