Yes, in a Boston Globe interview in 1985, Garabedian said that WGTR 
went on the air in 1972, so Dan has a good memory!!!  I checked back 
in all of the North America TV & Radio Station Guides that I own, and 
found no listing for it in 1966, but it did show up in the 1970 
edition. I don't recall it being on the air in 1970, however-- John 
H. was still with WMEX, if I recall correctly.
