Aloha means good-bye and hello


Clear Channel is welcoming back seven stations from the Aloha Station Trust, its temporary containment camp for stations that were over the local limit when the radio giant went private. In all cases, either the station in question moved from one market to another, or a different station moved out of a market, clearing the way for reclamation.
