True, but again, DN! caters to a very specific audience...it's a real
love/hate show, either you love it or hate it.  It's not good for a
station like WGBH to deliberately annoy the majority of their audience
just to pick up a comparatively small audience for DemNow.  Going
further, I would postulate that most of the DN fans in eastern Mass
are mostly living well inside WZBC's range; they're not living in the
suburbs as much.
