It is interesting how Clear Channel came on the scene setting up so many 
SMOOTH Stations and now is pulling the plug on them.  I guess this 
really shows that they never intended to be a positive force with this 
music.  Philly is just the latest city to catch this action from Clear 
Channel.  ALOHA  Tom
