We don't have any smooth jazz stations in Boston. We have had two but 
they have both been gone for years. The last one was a victim of Imus. 
Supposedly the station was doing well. Imus wasn't on in Boston. He went 
to the station's management and told them even though they were making 
money doing smooth jazz, he could show them how to make more money doing 
talk. The announcers got no warning. The station just abruptly changed 
formats.
