Originally, WCAP was a station in Washington, owned by AT&T; the call
letters stood for the name of the local Bell Operating Company, the
Chesapeake And Potomac Telephone Company.  That station I believe
turned into WRC when AT&T sold its stations to RCA (see also WEAF).
The second WCAP was in the City of Asbury Park, New Jersey.
