It was my understanding that the WUMB rebroadcast was being done without 
any money changing hands. The WUMB audio kept the needles moving, as it 
were, while Pamal sought a buyer for WPNI.

WUMB never promoted the simulcast in any way, and my recollection is 
that they didn't even include WPNI in their own lengthy legal ID; 
instead, an automated system at WPNI dropped the ID in over the WUMB audio.
