Actually, based on looking at old issues of Radio Annual and
Broadcasting Yearbooks, it seems that WBMS moved only for a brief
period of time -- when they changed format away from beautiful music
to pop and took the call letters of WHEE in May 1951; at that time,
they listed an address of 35 Court Street. However, by the summer of
1952, the WHEE experiment ended, WBMS returned, and so did the studio
location at the Hotel Shelton, which was not far from the Myles
Standish, in the area near Boston University. That location did not
change till 1956.
