A Flint rhythm and blues radio station was left singing the blues this week when a thief made off with the station's van and its stock of compact discs and sound equipment. But you have to wonder what the thief was thinking. The 1993 Pontiac Transport has WOWE on both sides and the back door, as well logos with the station's 98.9 FM dial position on the side windows...
