Takeaways:

* Voltair Philosophy. Stations always tried to outguess methodology. Eloquent Fred Jacobs article.

* We know tower & power, should audio chain changes be disclosed?

* Add concern about small, same sample for up to 26 months & no apples to apples top line comparison.

* Point is: Radio's a lasting winner with more ways to connect & hear audio delivery.

* Time for immediate, essential info & entertainment to surpass self-content recorded gadgets.
