Wasn't 93.7 HD-2 programming "Funkytown"?  The old Star 93.7 format?

There was, yes.  Thankfully I was able to rescue your message once I
figured out my configuration error.

HD radio may not be selling well, but more and more cars are starting
to come with it, and since radio these days is primarily an
out-of-home medium, such simulcasts may well be worth it.  Does
Neilsen Audio make a breakdown available?  (Normally in a 100%
simulcast situation, they combine reported listening for all signals
into a single rating, but I could imagine it might be worth iBiquity's
while to pay them for a breakdown.)
