WCRB Is 60, Not 79

Don't you think 1929 was just a typo and that the taxt should have
read 1949--UNLESS the services were on some older radio station (we
can all speculate about which one) until they moved to WCRB ~1949? If
the latter, the problem was the writer's confusing the year the
program began with the year it began on WCRB.
