I don't remember WCOP from its Top 40 days, but I do remember it from 
the mid-'60s to early '70s when it had a more-or-less full service 
format and then, IIRC, country.  It had also picked up the local NBC 
affiliation after WEZE dropped it.  Plough owned the station the whole 

Why did WEZE leave NBC?  The station went into oblivion after that.
