When WRKO launched in March of 1967, they would simulcast 680 on 98.5 from
6 AM to 6 PM.

I was at a prep school in Woonsocket where before WRKO/WROR came along we
only had WBZ and WPRO.  (WICE 1290 was totally nulled out )

Now this may have been an AFTRA thing but after 6 PM the WRKO jock would do
a live ID on 98.5 at top of the hour - saying 'This is WROR-FM Boston.' -
 I can remember Arnie Ginsburg doing that.
