WGTR was also the first station I ever heard that did voicetracking.  I
recall them doing it around '74/75 (or maybe earlier).  Of course the
reel-to-reel automation systems of the day weren't as sophisticated as
modern ones, and it wasn't uncommon to have the voicetracks get out of
sync with the music.  I believe the old 103.3 WEEI-FM was also
voicetracked around the same time.
