CC to help WBWL by downgrading Cape, RI stations

Arguably rather better than WHRB, since WHRB suffers first-adjacent
interference from class B WBRU and WXTK, while the new WBWL will have a
much lesser class A (with a DA notch,  even) from WWBB on the low side and
a DA-hobbled WCIB on the high side.

The reduction in adjacent channel interference probably turns out to be the
much bigger win for 101.7 than the dropping of the DA.
