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...
