Yes, Paul recalls the month correctly, but the year was 1993: I am
reasonably sure, because I was there. I worked for WCLB when it was
still owned by Fairbanks-- I was their consultant and programmed their
music for the first year that they were on the air. And later, yes they
did change calls to WKLB, sometime in June 1995-- to avoid confusion
with WCRB in the Arbitron ratings. Evergreen bought it in mid-October
1995, if my memory serves me!
