The old WUPY Lynn tower?

Interesting.  I may have been thinking of another station --- an AM 
daytimer, as I said --- that had similar calls and was on the air later 
(mid-'70s).  I distinctly remember the jingles 
("rumpa-tumpa-tumpa-tumpa-tum, WHOOPIE!").
What I can't recall is where the station was.  Portland, maybe?  It didn't 
last long.

FWIW: The first FM jazz station I ever knew of was WJZZ down in Bridgeport, 
which went on the air in the early '60s and was owned by Dave Brubeck, IIRC, 
who lives in that area.  I don't know its subsequent history.  It was a 
nationally-touted novelty back then.   -Doug
