I think 93.7 in its very first incarnation was WLAW-FM. I know that the
middle tower of WRKO's array is shorter than the other two towers because
the WLAW-FM antenna was there. But I wonder if WLAW-FM was on the air prior
to the move from Andover to Burlington?

I agree with you.  But there's nothing historic about the WMKK call 
letters.   If you want  historic call letters, 93.7 should go back to 
being WGHJ.
