And many - most, even - of those summer people are coming from the
Boston metro. If you're WBUR or WGBH, it's simply a matter of following
your listeners where they're headed for the summer. And once one did it
(WGBH), the other had to follow...after all, if you're WBUR, you don't
want your listeners discovering WGBH's stations on summer vacation and
forgetting to come back to you when they return to Boston in the fall.
The Cape is absolutely massively over-radioed on the commercial side, in
no small part because it's a peninsula with no adjacent markets that
need to be protected to the south or east. That may explain why several
commercial channels have ended up with noncommercial occupants - WGBH
with WZAI on 94.3, and more recently WBUR with WBUA on 92.7.
