I think there was a brief period just before they became "The Wizard" that
WKBR-FM did progressive rock.  Never heard it myself, but I have an old Top
30 hitlist that makes a vague reference to it.  Even though they were
automated for the dentist office music, they have a full studio...at least
they did in '74 the first time I visited the place.
