You are correct, the studio and transmitter facility were at 75 Concord 
Ave, Lexington. Business and sales offices on Clarendon St. Some DJs I 
remember during my time there

Jim Brokaw
Bob Greene
Don Thomas
Neil Gran
Neil McDonough (sp?)

There were others, but those neurons must be sleeping now!!
