I'd hate to see WEIM's properties seized.  I'm with you --- it's one of the 
most "listenable" stations around, and has a great history of engagement 
with the communities of its listening area.  I suppose small radio stations 
(heck, some big ones too) are hurting financially in the current climate, 
but are things that bad for The Blend?   -Doug
