Fitchburg: 1280 Tax Trouble?
Fri Mar 6 23:47:58 EST 2009
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
