I don't know if the FCC ever cited WGTZ.  The text is a little different than what Don wrote, but he has the right idea.

If you want to hear for yourself, here's how WGTZ sounded in its heyday: http://www.tophour.com/audio/Dayton%20OH/fm0929_1996-06_wgtz_bthompson.mp3

I doubt it was so, if "WGTZ EATON" was itself a legal ID.  I've always 
heard that whatever came before or after the legal ID didn't matter.
