Before ownership and Cape Cod....there was WBZ and WROR(98.5) and lots
of Boston and New York Voicework.....

Then (thru some connection of $$$) he got into ownership.  WCIB-FM 102
was one of his first stations...

Someone mentioned WERZ as being one of them.  I don't think it was.  I
heard he looked at it....and started requesting inside material 
(playlists, etc...) that ticked the current ownership off...I guess they
were afraid of giving away any confidential info before they had a deal
made...in case he actually was going to buy the competition....

So I don't believe he ever ended up picking up 'ERZ....
