You are absolutely correct.  I remember "Chickenman" very well, and I 
remember Jim Runyon working the 10 AM shift at WHDH after doing the 
"Chickenman" recordings.  (I'm not sure whether he was at KYW/WKYC or WCFL 
when he did them.  It was in the late '60s.  I used to hear the segments on 
Runyon wasn't at WHDH all that long, I don't believe --- maybe a year or 
two.   -Doug
