I suppose, if all of their listeners have tuners that are as old as
the music the station plays, it wouldn't be an issue...

Actually, my oldest tuner (circa 1984) is a digital one, and it
can tune in 103.0 - on which it gets dead silence.  103.3 comes
in great on it, though.  Out of the nine different types of tuners
we own (both home and car), only one is analog - a Tivoli Audio PAL
(only three or four years old, but its designer, the late Henry Kloss,
apparently insisted on an analog design).
