In later years, it was owned by GAF (General Aniline and Film, makers of 
Ansco photographic film), and had an innovative format created by Mario 
Mazza that married classical music with a CHR style of presentation. I 
never got a chance to hear it, but heard many stories about it.

Later, Mario came to WCRB, where he created the format still followed by 
WFCC (Cape Cod) and the other World Classical Network stations. It 
presents classical music in the style of an easy listening station 
("dinner classics", "tracks to relax", etc.).
