There have been several posts here over the last few weeks about the recent raids in the Boston area, but I came across this article which I hadn't seen before. It gives some pretty good insight into how these stations serve certain communities. There's even a picture of a seized transmitter. The transmitter looks like one of the Veronica designs from about 15 years ago or so.
