Clemons wants to go on legally

Boston is unique as a Top 10 market where there is neither an urban or
hispanic/latino station in the top tier of licensed stations.

The flip side of this is Radio One who knows how to package urban radio but
found WILD to be a tough sell. They sold WILD-FM to Entercom for an
inflated price ( and WILD-FM's demise spawned Touch FM)

WILD-AM could not sustain itself with local ads so they leased it out to
the Chinese.

I would suggest that WRBB (104.9) is best suited to cover that part of
Boston not unlike what MIT's WTBS/WMBR did years ago,
