. . . WGNG ... went from nowhere, to number two in the market . . .
This composte of WGNG (550Khz) in Pawtucket (Providence) Rhode Island, appeared on Volume 2, Issue 12 of Programmer's Digest, dated December 17, 1973.
Ron Huntsman from Nashville, TN, narrated this edition of PD and introduces this

One of my favorite parts in this composite is the Legal ID jingle, during which (if you listen carefully) you'll hear a female voice, nearly buried in the music, identify the city of license as "Pawtucket". The jingle group follows, singing "RHODE ISLAND." I always thought this was terribly clever.
WGNG had a good daytime signal and the station was heavily processed, as you will hear. WGNG played hit music (only). The heavy repetition of hits and a couple of jingles, and the jocks' strict adherence to "call letters first", were all elements of their success.
