I don't know why they did it, but I know why I liked it.  I thought it 
gave a little more sense of a boundary between one show and the next.  
Other stations, such as WCOP and WMEX, started the new show at the top 
of the hour, after a break for the news.  That way, the whole day seemed 
more like one continuous show.  Having one show end, then an ID, and 
then the next show start, had a bit more of a delineation between one 
show and a bit more of the flavor of old-time radio.
