How many of us have dreamed that dream of heading back to small-town America, buying that first radio station we waltzed through as a young aggressive radio rat and living happily ever after? They are the thousands of small town America stations blanketing tiny main streets across the fruited plain where the priorities range from announcing obituaries, school lunch menus, a lost cat and interviewing the Mayor about a ribbon cutting for a new park. To put things into perspective, they are radio stations that bill the same amount of money in one month as WTOP bills in five hours. But as Cromwell Group President Bud Walters tells Radio Ink in our January 23rd cover interview; "The folks that work there have to want to be in that community. They have to want to be a part of that town. They have to care about where they live. If that’s the case, they will do everything they possibly can to make that place better."
