Lovell Dyett, hosted talk show on WBZ-AM nearly 40 years
During court-ordered busing in Boston in the 1970s, WBZ-AM talk show host Lovell Dyett sparred week after week on the air with Raymond Flynn, who was then a state representative. Mr. Dyett passionately argued for equal educational opportunities. Flynn advocated for the benefits of neighborhood schools and emphasized the plight of poor urban white children. The phone lines lit up and the talk went on until midnight on Saturdays.
