Right there on Rte 44 Westbound! Ah yes, I was delivering furniture in the
spring of '78 to some narrow triple deckers (a ding here, a ding there)(a
beer here, a beer there) and actually was a big listenter to JB105 in those
days (more than PRO92).

Heck, I can't recall WRLM's format in '78...

Most of the old-timer locals, my father was born there, pronounced it

The proper way to pronounce the city is  TON-TIN.

That reminds me,  I remember the old  WRLM 93.3....a quirky little local
station in it's day until they saw dollar signs in there eyes and sold it
off.  Now its just another Clear Channel move in to the Providence market as

I remember an ID around 1975 that was somehting like this....
"Now with 50,000 watts in Stereo....from the McCarthy Professional Building
this is Ninety Three Three WRLM Taunton."
