In fact the purchase of WSPR by Fisher in 1977 led to my first full time radio 
gig.  Around October 77 they moved some of the staff from WFTN, Franklin down 
to Springfield leaving on air openings.  One of the jocks leaving was another 
former Grahm student, Tom Pagnotti.  I moved to Franklin from my part time gig 
at 3WD Schenectady to nights at WFTN.  My 66 Dark Blue VW Bug lasted one 

Today WFTN is CHR and still runs Paul Harvey thrice a day.

The PD in 77-78 was Norm Theibeault. (TEE-BOW).  Anyone know his 
whereabouts?  Pagnotti?
