    good luck and great news about WYZR! I know of many of us lost radio folk since the sale of wduq, not to say that transitioning to full time NPR/PRX/APM wasn’t a good idea as controversial as it sounds. to have a full time jazz signal in this market not only serves the wants of the captivated and surprisingly large unique pittsburgh jazz audience, but many local schools and colleges will benefit from this contour increase. The question on my mind though is what of 88.3 WRCT from CMU? not sure of the directional or nondirectional patterns of either, but i’ll definitely do some research.
