OK, but I'm more than 96.9% positive that it was Kaiser-Globe that 
bought the three stations from Harvey Labs and set them up with their 
new call letters and programming.  And I do remember talking with the 
executive doing it (at the new WCAS studios in Central Square).  I 
was in law school at the time and hoping for a part-time or summer 
job announcing.  Apparently I didn't have the radio voice for it at 
the time.  Whatever that is.
