George Jaspert redux

And yes, for the person who asked, according to several sources, it
absolutely was George Jaspert who founded WCCM (in 1947-- another event that
occurred in 1947, along with the founding of WJDA in Quincy...).  Jaspert
claimed to have been present at the beginning of KDKA-- otoh, so did lots of
people, as years later, millions would say they had been at Woodstock...
Anyway, we do know Jaspert was the first station manager of 2 of
Westinghouse's stations in 1921, and as I said in an earlier post, he was
quite an innovator in early radio.
