Memories of John Garabedian and V-66...

Indeed, WEEI FM was voicetracked back then; I spent a summer working 
there during college.  It was of course a rather crude system.  The 
voicetrack was dumped over the music by cutting one music channel 
out, putting the voicetrack on the other, and mixing the whole thing 
down to mono...  I recall it was [mostly?] Paul Benzaquin doing the 
voicetrack, proving you could be in 2 places at once.

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.
