Mel "Mile of Music" Miller and Melvin X. Melvin were not the same person.  Miller was the PD in the mid 60's.  The lineup in 1964 was...

Fenway  6-10
Mel Miller 10-12
Dan Donovan  12-4
Melvin X. Melvin Gold Platter Show 4-8
Arnie Ginsburg Night Train Show 8-10
Jerry Williams  10-1
Johnny Gardner 1-5

Gardner, by the way, was John Garabedian.  In 1965 Larry Glick replaced Gardner on the overnight.  Melvin X. Melvin - who was really JJ Jeffrey - went to Philadelphia.  Tiger Dan Donovan...the last one was really Harvey Blaine, I believe...moved to 4-8PM.  The last Fenway, who I think was really Jack Gale, left and was replaced by Larry Justice. Jerry Williams left was replaced by Steve Fredericks.  

The midday shift, which had been 12-4, became 10-2, and was held by several people over the next few years.
