The station’s down at the end of the AM dial and claims to be Greenwich oriented despite its content of canned business news from St. Louis and points west. The ratings are too low to be measured by Arbitron but nonetheless someone has bought it out of bankruptcy. Greenwich Time terms it a sale of “Greenwich’s Flagship Radio Station”, which seems a trifle overblown: there is no other other radio station, unless you count Billy Joe Haversin’s short wave set up in his mom and dad’s attic.
Regardless, the sale comes a little late for its former owner and former Greenwich resident Bob Metter, who somehow escaped the SEC fraud charges brought against him and his penny stock company, Spongetech Delivery Systems. If you want a laugh, check out the bulletin boards for Spongetech back in, say, 2011, when the SEC was preparing to shut them down. I used to do this stuff: it was a classic pump and dump penny stock scam but the poor chumps on the boards just can’t believe they’ve been had. Oooh, are they angry at posters who tell them just what suckers they are! Oh well.
