Interesting history.  WTXL was a starting place of several well known
people, as I understand it.  I'd be interesting in hearing what their
ratings were like in the late '60's.  I visited them in '72 or '73: their
tower had the appearance of a telephone pole, and their jingles were
ripped off from WCFL.  To cover the "CF" in WCFL, they overdubbed some
SFX over that part of the jingle.  The jock told my friend and I that
they were supposedly subliminal.  Oh, sure.
