Re: RE: Was 103.5FM...now 'Memory Lane'

I vaguely recall there was a Channel 14 on air out of Worcester for a few 
years in the mid 1960's. I think the call letters may have been WJZB, or 
something like that. I think they sometimes simulcast or rebroadcast WWLP 
Channel 22 from Springfield, who then had the same graphic style on their ID 

I remember that they didn't even come on the air until around 6:00 PM, when 
they had some news (perhaps from WWLP) and then showed some old movies or 
reruns, then they may have had some 11:00 PM news and were off again after 

They must've not had much power, they just barely came in "buried in snow" 
at my folks house in Newton (seven miles west of Boston), while other 
Worcester area UHF's such as Channel 27 came in fairly well on the same set 
a few years later. They disappeared sometime in the late 60's.

I know that the lowest few UHF TV channels became occupied by the upper end 
of the UHF public service band (police, businesses, etc...) in many areas 
since the 1970's.
