Oh absolutely it shared time.  It went on the air in 1924 as WDBR, 
and in 1926, changed call letters to WSSH, run by the Tremont Temple 
Baptist Church.  The AM dial back then was incredibly crowded, so 
stations regularly shared time, and they did not like doing so.  WSSH 
had its frequency moved a couple of times, and it shared time with 
WBET (owned by the Boston Evening Transcript), WLEX in Lexington 
(before it moved to Boston), and briefly, WMAF down in So. 
Dartmouth.  I don't see it sharing any time with WNAC however.
