I do recall WEZE carried the World Series in 1964 - 65 and 66 I was at prep school in RI so I don't know but in 67 the Series was on WCOP.

Dom Valentinio and Michael Paige did a call in show after the games.

The 1962-3 Dan Donovan at WMEX wound up at WCOP doing country evenings in 68-69 as I met him when I visited the studio in Lexington. He showed me the Gates FM automated carousel and I remember him saying there will be no DJ's in 10 years.

But those were two very different decisions at different times.  I'm not 
sure when WCOP became an NBC affiliate, but it was some time after it 
went MOR in 1962.

> WEZE at the time had become #1 in Boston with the beautiful music format. They would remain king until WJIB blew them away around 1967. I am guessing WEZE did not want to run Monitor and NBC went shopping and found WCOP.

WEZE stopped running Monitor much earlier, I think around 1960 or
