Oh, right, now I remember... that was the 97.5 move-in from Trenton
(the former WPST, which moved to 94.5, the old WCHR).  And Greater has
held onto the 97.5 so there's no way to find out how much it's worth,
although now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure the sales contract
(which I read at the time) stipulated the value of the two stations.
I should probably do what I constantly advise other people to do and
look it up.
