And don't forget what Auntie Donna did-- as in, the history on their
web-site, among other things.  Scott & I were both outraged about how little
WBZ kept around.  Regarding their TV history, since I am writing it (and yes
they have agreed to pay me a small amount for my time <g>) , I will take it
very personally if they ignore the 9 pages of pre-CBS info I have already
sent them.

My plan is to offer the finished history to the Boston Radio Archives once
it is finalised and WBZ-TV has made whatever use of it they wish.  But I can
assure you, they now HAVE a very thorough history from day one to the 1990s...
