Whistler FM: great community radio

Website: www.whistlerfm.ca

A great example of a local low powered radio station & how it can serve a community.  The station is apparently owned by the guy who started Shore 104 in Vancouver (now Bell Media).  It's a Triple A, plays some cool interesting music (some even local to town) and is tightly woven in with the community. They had a live to air from a local pub last night.  In my opinion, the announcers sound superior to certain large market stations I've listened to recently (names omitted).  

I hope enterprising radio people attempt this more often.  Smaller towns are often subjected to stations who claim they are local but are running on auto pilot most of the town. This type of radio is great.
