I believe the Boston Globe article from Jeff McLaughlin that I quoted
said he was station manager of WWEL, and there was a very long interview
with him about his hopes for the station.

They were looking for something to split off the AM telling them my parents would go out of their mind to hear this music again. Arnie contacted Al Hamm and WXKS became MOYL’s fifth station giving 1430 a real identity and ratings for the first time since it went on the air.
That's interesting. Again, I am not in any way questioning you, since
you were there. WXKS changed the music in January 1980 (McLaughlin's
article was written the week it happened, and what he described
certainly sounded like Music of Your Life) but perhaps they first did
their own version of MOYL, and then picked up Al Hamm's syndicated version?
