Who brought you to WBZ?

Well, back in the '60s I had a germanium crystal radio [no 
electronics - just the xtal].  In Wellesley, the only 2 stations that 
were actually listenable were WHDH [of course, being almost next 
door] and WBZ with their powerful lobe in my direction.  WBZ's format 
back then was much more attractive to a teenager.  And... eventually 
I too worked there as a tech for a few summers in the '70s, including 
the "Grease Weekend" - a wonderful experience!

A less wonderful but interesting experience was getting a mini 
electro-shock treatment from my metal frame glasses standing next to 
the tuning coils at the base of the Hull towers...

Ron Landry and Bruce Bradley in the mid-'60s, Bob Wilson's Bruins 
play-by-play in the late '60s, Guy Mainella in the early '70s, Robin 
Young's eclectic late-night show in the mid-'70s.

Now? Pretty much just traffic reports on the AM and Patriots/Bruins 
on the FM when I'm in the area.
