Fwd: thanks to Gary Francis

I heard a portion of the show while driving to Boston last evening,
and it was almost like listening to LTAR.  WCAP came in 
all-right between 5:00 and 6:00 pm and actually seemed 
stronger after the 6:00 pm pattern switch.  I was heading for 
Symphony Hall and the Cecilia Bartoli concert...WCAP
held up well on 93 south to the Rt 16 exit and McGrath O'Brien to the Museum of Science.  The swing toward MIT
engendered the most interference, but WCAP came in almost like a local at 
6:30 as I crossed the Smoot/Mass Ave bridge.  Alas, it was gone as soon as I hit Boston soil.
If I had been at home, I might have called like the last time Donna was on.  One focus of the proceedings
was fairly early Boston TV, and I remember the very days  channel 2 and the original channel 5 hit the air!  They made a reference too "Uncle Gus's kids' show on channel 9;
I believe he was Gus Bernier who invented multi-tasking
before it was coined.  Channel 9 took a couple of months to go 
on the air, and he and Gerry Kearney (sp?) and Lou Dumont seemed to be the only staffers.  Why can't I forget this

I have a weakness for maple walnut, right now semmingly
available only at the Kings Grant dining room in Danvers.

  (If you're in the neighbourhood, Donna puts in a 
plug for the oreo cookie-- it's wonderful!)
