While we're on this subject: I noted in your post, Mark, that WTAG is the
Red Sox affiliate in Worcester.  I moved from the area 30 years ago and it
was the Sox station for central Massachusetts not only way back then, but
long before --- since the early '60s.  I'm wondering two things: has that
affiliation been consistent since I've been gone, and if so, is this a
record, or are there other stations that have been Sox affiliates for that
many years or even longer?  Anyone know?
