In the mid-1950s, WBZ had a program on later (9 or 10 o'clock) called
"Program PM."  Originally, it was hosted by Bob Nelson, then by "The Other
Bob Kennedy," as he called himself until JFK's assasination.  The program
was moved earlier, and the name was changed to "Contact" around the fall
of 1963.
