Well, I queried their FCC files sometime in midday and, clicking their 
"Call Sign Changes", both had officially changed as of "12/01/2006".
Like good, attentive doobies, 99.5 gave a proper "WCRB Lowell-Boston" 
TOH-ID throughout the remainder of the day.
However, 102.5 gave a fast "WCRB-Waltham-Boston" thoughout the afternoon 
and evening!!!  Just for Igo, Harder and Berry (what first name do they 
have in common? P=), I gave the studio a ring after midnight——at their 
*NEW* toll-free number: 888-819-1025——and was told that the new ID was 
pressed into service as of midnight (which I subsequently confirmed: 
Now it's a semi-fast "WKLB-FM-Waltham-Boston"!).
So it seems, yesterday——on-air——there were two WCRBs and no WKLB!  P=)
