Salem took over Mid April, 1977.   Prior to that, Bill McCormick was trying 
various formats.  Al Makkay was the manager (see below).  Frankly, I'm not 
sure what it was when we took over.  Seems to me some variation on AOR.

Yeah...I guess Al Makkay (owner of WCIB, WPXC, WRZE) decided he couldn't make 
enough money on the Red Sox.  He's probably right.  I guess the fees are 
tremendous.  I'd like to see somebody pick 'em up here though.  WEEI is not 
easy to get at night.
