Thank you, Donna, for the info.  Another aspect of WMLO is that it may have
been the first station whose call letters reflected their format ("mellow").
But come 1967 or so, they just couldn't resist the pull of the then
hugely-popular rock & roll, and programmed that music all day on Saturdays.
A guy named Bob Lowery did it for about three years, IIRC, and then a guy
named Steve Ferguson took over when he left.

BTW, thanks to Adam, I'm back on the list.  I have a new e-mail address
though:  bananastasi@rcn.com
Mail to the Javanet address is no longer being forwarded.
