The rules at the time Bob bought WKBR allowed stations to be off the
air indefinitely, with the Commission's approval (usually given).
This was before the Telecom Act of '96 codified the automatic
expiration of a license for failure to operate after one year.
Langer got 650 on the air just under the wire for the initial
grandfather period.
