Yes, I remember that, at first, WHET had separate programs part of the 
time and simulcasted part of the time.  Since I didn't have FM in my car 
at the time, I was disappointed at the change, and I was glad when I could 
find them simulcasting.

The departure of WCRB from the AM dial eventually motivated me to buy an 
FM converter at Radio Shack.  I remember parking my car partly on the 
sidewalk in front of the apartment building where I lived and dangling 
several connected extension cords from my window in order to solder the 
connection of the converter to the fuse-box of my 1970 Dodge Dart.
