    No. No. No.

    You've got 94.5
    You've got 96.9 which plays a mix of Throwback Hip-Hop/R&B and new Hip-Hop/R&B
    You've got 97.7 which plays R&B music from the past 20 or so years.
    You've got 1410 AM which plays R&B Oldies.
    And if 103.3 and 107.9 are like other CHR stations I've heard they probably mix in some Hip-Hop and R&B.

    I'm going to guess that was the original intent but then Entercom beat them to it on 97.7....

    That's WWRV from NYC.

    I would think that all that's left is some sort of Spanish programming.

    Why doesn't Beasley just turn in the license for 1330 and its translator?

    Yeah, I'd like to see a "true oldies" or even a smooth jazz station, but we all know neither of these is likely, and all the other formats are covered.

    Beasley already has five full-market FMs to keep them busy.

    Are you f-ing serious?

    Because they just paid almost a half-million dollars for it?

    Oh, let's just throw that money away.......!

    If Beasley did indeed pay half-a-million dollars for the translator, the bigger question is WHY? It's not like the programming options for 1330 AM are all that appealing.

    Has anyone noticed (read, "does anyone care") now that Beasley has acquired 102.5, that 1330 AM and 102.5 FM were once the AM-FM pair that used to be WCRB, Waltham-Boston?
