WXKS (KISS) started in 1979...)  . . . 

    OK,so I was already in Nutmeg Land -- listening to the Red Sox year after year on WTIC (AM),which has carried the games since at least the 1950's --and missed out on all this goofball business with the RedSox looking like they subcontrACTED putting their games on a really bad signal, then switching to a worse signla, then selecting as their "flagship"station an FM not even really in themarket, etc., What the heck was that all about, anyhow? Just another aspect of the increasignly dysfunctional ownership?
