Smooth No More     4-1419
From Dennis Snyder: "...WRXW 92.7 LPFM has dropped it's smooth music format and gone to religious programming.  The "Smooth" music is still being
streamed on line while the FM signal is religious.  If you go to Smooth's web site the regular site appears for a few seconds then a pop up says "Farewell Orlando," stating the change is due to lack of listener financial support."
