I was actually listening to WEEI for a change opening day and they were running this down as it was updated. Pretty cool.

Just as a point of interest, they are all broadcasting separately from their homes right now.

Just about everyone in Denver has been doing that for a couple of weeks.

The lady from the Classical (Mozart) Station said she broadcasts from her clothing closet because her sweaters, dresses, and blouses deaden the echos.
