Certainly a possibility, and I do recall the howls of outrage from the 
"bloodthirsty shut-ins" when WWEL abandoned beautiful music and went 
disco as Kiss 108.  The older columnists from the Boston  newspapers 
were appalled too.  Btw, I know the format change occurred sometime in 
January 1979-- and that Sunny Joe White (rest his soul) was there from 
day one.  But does anyone have an exact date when Kiss hit the 
airwaves?  I cannot find my notes anywhere (you should see my office-- 
still sorting things out after doing all that research for my PhD), and 
I've found several conflicting dates when I looked it up.
