The rebel he wrote about was WQXR, which in many ways operated against the
trends in radio at the time.  He was still living when the book came out
in 1973.  I don't know about now.

Quite possibly.  According to the just jacket, he was Executive
Vice-President and General Manager of WQXR from 1936 to 1965.  He retired
as Chairman of the Board in 1967.
