Radio Name Game - Ed

"103.3 Ed FM" KDRF is an Adult Hits station in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Previously an Alternative station known as "103.3 The Zone," they flipped to their current format in 2004 and became "Fred FM."  Unfortunately for them, XM Satellite Radio had a trademark on the name "Fred" for their Classic Alternative channel (their call letters are Fred spelled backwards...sort of) so they switched to "Ed FM."  XM's threatened lawsuit apparently doesn't affect Canadian Freds.
