It may have been as late as 1986 that WPLM finally went on the bird
piggybacking on with NESN on Satcom.

Where WPLM really cut corners was on Bruins home games not springing
for a high quality line.

WPLM came to be because Haywood Sullivan was a golf buddy of the
owner. The end came when WHDH could not carry the Ken Coleman feed of
the 86 World Series as they were not the flagship.

WPLM also in those days played a song written by Coleman titled Take
Me Out To Old Fenway recorded by long time Red Sox fan Suzyn Waldman.
