When did WNAC cease being a Mutual affiliate?  The Yankee Network and Mutual 
were organically connected for a long time under General Teleradio's 
ownership.  I gather WNAC left MBS when the network was sold(?)

--And where does Norman Knight fit into this picture?  I think I'm correct 
that Knight was WNAC/Yankee's GM for some years before (or during?) the time 
began his own
regional radio enterprise.  I think all the Knight Quality stations were 
Yankee affiliates when I was growing up in the '60s.  WHEB was also with NBC 
for years.
