>Don't know where Jim is today, but is very likely that he and Harry did

showing Harry at the board of WMEX captioned "One of our most memorable days
at WMEX #1. Harry Chapin dropped by to relate the story behind his Taxi".
More than likely he would have been a guest on the morning show, and Jim
Connors is listed as the 5:30 to 9AM jock on the back of the survey.
