If, as an owner of an AM, you feel that the end of AM broadcasting is 
inevitable.....it's headed into a death spiral that no one is going to be 
able to turn around....then why not have the attititude of getting every 
last dollar out of it before it eventually crashes to the ground.

That seems to be the feelings of Entercom, who, IMHO, have 2 of the worst 
programmed AM stations.

They have not taken one step to extending the lifespan of their Boston AM 
stations.  It's as though they're stuck with them, and too busy figuring out 
how to rape and pillage the properties before they die.

AM is fast becoming the new shortwave.  Interesting for a few. 
...untolerable for most.

With the exception of WBZ, I can't hink of one compelling reason to listen 
to AM....except for "radio geek" curiosity to see whats out there on
