The FCC has authorized nothing on 97.1 closer than 120km away in Maine.

Hey, I'm the FCC must have made a mistake. They're licensing a new station 
to Boston, and at 97.1? Wow,
I'm sure WTKK will not be happy.

"Ain't no stoppin' us now" (a midi file of the McFadden & Whitehead hit) 
plays in the background as
this apparent pirate station "counts down" to its debut (49 days from now). 
"We the best" the
site proclaims (hey, what grade did they get in English?)

If they're web-only that's one thing but I would hope they don't dare to 
actually go on the air.
Illegal, illegal, illegal. I'm Cc-ing Greater Media on this as I'm sure that 
if WHOT-FM 97.1
actually does go on the air, and at that very frequency, they may wish to 
contact the FCC.
