WBUR was once a laboratory for SPC students, much like WERS.  In fact,
back in the late 50s, when I first got an FM radio, the two stations
sounded very much alike, with programming consisting mostly of news and
classical music, signing on at 2PM when school was in session and 5 PM
during the summer.
