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.
