To capitalize on the reputation WFNX had at 101.7..these days some say call
letters aren't important, but why did Greater get the calls WROR for 105.7?
Why did some stations here and elsewhere (Vermont) grab WMEX? While WFNX
and what WXRV plays may not necessarily be the same, it's still alternative
(maybe 92.5 is "adult album alternative"). While they do like using the
nickname "the river", they did grab the WFNX calls for the 99.9
simulcast...and since the Haverhill signal is closer to Boston, why not
flip them and start promoting that fact?

In a similar sense, why did Mr Bittner grab the call letters WJIB for 740?
The "Memories"
station has been using memorable call letters from the past...
