There was a story in the Globe just after WBOQ came on from its new site about how 
Tanger befriended Geller and gradually gained his confidence before Geller finally agreed to 
sell to him.  I have an aircheck in which Geller, on the air, says he's sold to someone who 
intends to keep the classical format, and says he hopes they will actually do so.
