It sounds good in theory, but let's face it, it would sound every bit as 
phony as those "grease weekends" WBZ did in the early 70s.  More of a 
parody of 60s T-40 than a re-creation.  Almost like listening to one of 
those "Cruisin'" albums.

Keep in mid that WBZ dropped T-40 almost 36 years ago (early 1968 as I 
recall), and most of these guys haven't done T-40 since then.
