AM Radio Station Musical Chairs

  Musical format and frequency assignment chairs seems to be the norm in 
the Washington area. ;-) In the DC area that frequency (730 khz) has 
undergone various format changes in recent months. For the longest time 
it was day time Spanish music with much reduced power/antenna pattern 
after sunset. Then came a period of rock music and/or Spanish 
programming. Now it appears to be all talk (in English), much like that 
old blaster, WMAL. At least neither station has yet gone over to the 
dark side (IBOC- the hissing monster) which would certainly wipe out one 
of my favorite AM night time stations, CHWO (740 khz) from Toronto.
