Possibly. In the Boston area, there are (at least) two stations that
carry Donahue, on ein the late morning, one in the late afternoon. The
morning one was not with the TP cast (don't recall what the topic was),
but the afternoon one was.

Well, so did his wife. Does that mean that she was in on it, too?  Hell,
