You are correct. The disastrous Larry Glick midday experiment on WHDH-AM
ended when Pat Whitley replaced him (with me as his producer) in that
daypart in late 1989. Larry was a terrific guy and a terrific talent, but
middays was the wrong daypart for him, especially on a station that was
moving into an issue-oriented talk position.
