As an experiment, I've split the Mobile-Gulf Coast page into three parts to try to cut down on the clutter.  From the Mobile-Pensacola page you can now navigate to a distinct page for the Biloxi-Gulfport-Pascagoula, Mississippi market, as well as one for the Fort Walton Beach-Destin, Florida market.  This is not necessarily a permanent change, and your feedback on the split is welcome at webmaster (at) almediapage.info.  If I decide to keep the split, I'll see about adding more fringe stations to each new page to flesh them out a little more.
