WCRB Is 60, Not 79

I agree with the 60th.  Their 25th was when I was working there in 
the early-mid 70's.  I still have the clock radio they gave out at 
their big 25th party with a 25-years plaque on it.

As for WCRB broadcasting their Sunday 11am services, the Globe reads:
"We've done readings here, and since 1929 WCRB has broadcast our 
services, including a half-hour sermon and church music."

They obviously got the start date wrong.  But that church did 
broadcast services on WCRB for many years; I did the remote work for 
a couple of years until the deacon or whomever complained to WCRB 
about my "dress code"... [I was a quasi-hippie back then].
