On Sunday nights from 6-9pm Dick Summer did a show called "Subway" which 
was devoted to album cuts and stuff WBZ didn't play the rest of the 
time.  I remember hearing the long version of LMF there.  I believe this 
evolved out of a folk show they previously did in that time slot, though 
I'm not sure of the exact change-over.
