WCOP used to run a ton of Coppertone spots in the summer as that sunscreen was made by Plough.

WCOP was one of my two most-listened-to stations when I was in the East Campus dorms at MIT '58-'62.  (The other was then-WTBS, naturally. WMEX was third because they didn't come in very well a lot of the time.)  I have carried with me ever since that "Plough Incorporated" (which was the phrasing I heard over and over on WCOP) was headquartered in Memphis.  But I have nothing to back that up except slowly fading half-century-old recollections.
