I think the QXR network was one of the earlier such networks. It
certainly preceded WCRB's efforts. I imagine it was fed like other FM
networks of the day (Concert Network, and later the CRB Network), by
picking up the signal of another FM station carrying the programs. I
imagine that WXHR probably got the QXR Network from WTAG-FM and WTAG-FM
got it from some other station closer to New York, etc.
