Bruins games are automated on WTPL.  WBZ is a bit sloppy about sending the 
correct tones for breaks & legal ID.  I've had the PD record games for me & 
we've looked at audio for mis-fired events in CoolEdit...every time the 
automation did exactly what the network told it to do.  We've had similar 
problems with WRKO and the Sox, though they were much better last year.
