As I recall, it was when the FCC began to require AM-FM combos to do 
a certain amount of separate programming that WRKO-FM began doing 
automated rock & roll music  ARKO-Matic something or other.  The rest 
of the time, they simulcasted WNAC as before.  Because this half-
hearted compliance with FCC regs actually drew an audience, the 
Powers that Were converted WNAC into WRKO and started a top-40
