CONFIRMED - Feds shut down Touch FM 106.1

I always wondered if Mayor Menino was protecting Touch 106. It never made sense that the FCC left them alone when other pirates were removed from the air. Anyway, I agree that Boston's black community needs a station of its own, and yes, many people did listen to Touch. But why not do it the legal way?  I know buying a station is expensive, but surely there are donors who would support such a worthy venture, and/or maybe there is a currently silent AM in a suburban location that could get a signal into Boston.
