Can't disagree with any of your assessment, Steve.  Gary James was the PD
at WARE during, I believe, the early eighties.  I worled there part time
for a while in 86-87, when Donna Halper was consulting them.  James also
worked at WMEX-1150 in Boston in the eighties, at WKNE and most recently
at WHYN.  i wonder who owns WARE now... is it James?
