That's in large part because I haven't gotten around yet to re-editing
that profile.  I would still consider the original WBZ to be an
ancestor of today's WBZ, because of the continuity of ownership,
callsigns, and programming (just as I trace back WMJX to W67B even
though the first WBZ-FM license was handed in), but it is useful to
make a distinction.
