Well, WLAW moved from Andover to Burlington in 1947 and General Tire
bought WLAW and moved the WNAC calls to it in 1953 or 1954. Before
that, WNAC was on 1260. Did WNAC-FM (which, I presume was on 98.5)
date back to when WNAC (AM) was on 1260? Now, there was a historic FM
on Asnebumskit Hill in Paxton with the calls WGTR (no connection with
AM 1060). I can only guess at the dates for that WGTR. Did the GTR in
those FM calls stand for General Tire and Rubber? It seems to me that
General Tire was not yet in the radio business during the era when
WGTR (FM) operated from Paxton. I assume that to have been in the
1930s and early 1940s.
