OMG, a mention of WHIL. At one point in the 1950s, they were top-40, as 
I vaguely recall from my childhood.  I think Don Masters was one of 
their disc jockeys.  And yes, they did indeed air horse racing, 
announced by Babe Rubenstein.  They were owned by Sherwood "Woody" 
Tarlow, if memory serves.  (He was a probate court judge at one time, 
but I believe he got into some kind of ethics trouble... the Boston 
Globe did an entire investigative piece on his improprieties circa 1973.
