The owner of Northeast Broadcasting School as well as your Esso
Reporter-- all I have is a scanned photo of Victor Best, if anyone
wants a copy. But as for why WBZ ignored their 60th, I begged and
pleaded and even offered to write a tribute for free... but nobody
seemed to be interested... sigh... (no respect for history, I
guess...) And yes, WBZ has the oldest surviving call letters in New
England but little 1XE/WGI was the first New England station...
