Merlin takes over a LP-FM in Chicago

Only Randy Michaels could pull off a stunt like this.

Last summer he killed off WKQX ( alternative rock ) for all news which has
been a disaster in both Chicago and New York. Now as of tomorrow WKQX will
return on 87.7 bumping the smooth jazz format that landed there 3 years ago
when WNUA flipped to Spanish.

In an added twist - the owners of 87.7 are telling the listeners that the
FCC and Obama administration are responsible for the smooth jazz format

Can somebody explain in detail what the exact problem is? I am guessing it
is over the possible end of analog with the LP signals.

WLFM averages about 500,000 in cume which is more than double what the all
news format is doing.
