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.
