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.
