Frank FM

106.3 Nashua NH and 107.5 Lewiston/Portland ME are both Nassau Franks and 
they have the SAME rotation of songs, but not a SIMULCAST, though I think 
they have some DJs that do both stations and straddle the live sections 
between songs

I can pick up both fairly well here in Epping (Nassau's 106.3 Scarborough 
does not interfere here).....I always wondered why Nassau doesn't simply 
flip 107.5 and 106.3 so BOTH Franks (Nashua and the Portland market) could 
be 106.3 Frank FM...

Both are Classic Hits (as were 99.1 Henniker/104.9 Wolfeboro back when they 
were branded Frank).

-Epping NH (an area where EEI on 93.7 is like having a NEW sports station, 
850 kind of rough around here, and JUST out of reach of 95.9 Saco)

The Frank stations up north, including 106.3 are classic hits, with DJs. 
Frank on the cape is variety hits, like Mike was, with no DJs.
