    WAVS was a great station…not as polished as the larger market satations…but a great compelling station none the less!

    It’s great to hear all the dayparts on this aircheck!

    I think the PD is pretty proud of his contest “What would YOU like to win”…as it is a bit overdone. 😉

    I made many road trips between Boston and Baltimore and I always looked forward to listening to those secondary markets like New Haven which were “feeders” to the majors like NY and Philadelphia. New Haven and Providence had some of the best-sounding radio: WAVZ, WNHC, WGNG, JB 105 (WPJB), WPRO-FM.
