Re: Driving the calls (was: wrong call letters)

I worked behind the scenes at WLLH in 1978. The jocks in AM control said
something about having to use the calls 3 times in a break... WLLH time,
wx, pick hit of the week or what not... may our memories of WLLH as _we
knew it_ rest in peace (and on airchecks!)

P.S. Oh Bill, did you witness what to me was a mind-blowing experience on
WCAP long ago, when they played side B of The Beatles' Abbey Road LP, in
broad daylight???  It musta been during Mr. Cohen's in-the-big-round-RV
nap time in the afternoon. It left an impression on me; I played the same
selection as my last song(s) on the air at WYHI 1570...
