Memories of John Garabedian and V-66...

WHDH Cash Call Jackpot!  I'd forgotten all about that.
Here's a speculative question I've thought about from time to time:  If
Entercom and Salem hadn't manipulated things up and down the AM dial (I'm
not necessarily speaking perjoratively here), the consequence being WEEI's
format moving to the 850 kHz spot, would WHDH still be around today?  As a
competing talker, or sports station, or all-news, or what?  Bottom line: Did
the city already have too many AM stations?
