Ahhh, yes !! WKBR-FM.

     Yes, I remember that station quite well.  I used to live in Randolph, MA
(about 15 miles south of Boston) and got WKBR-FM quite well in 1970.  Their
Top-40 format equalled in quality to some of Boston's best (WRKO,WMEX and
WKOX-FM).  I was less than pleased that it switched to dentist music in
stereo as WZID ("The Wizard of Music") in 1971.  A few of my engineer friends
said that WKBR-FM had a "ballsy" signal, virtually everywhere.  I liked the
fact that, as a kid, my dad was able to punch in 95.7 in the car from
Randolph, MA to the Kancamangus Highway (near Conway, NH) and never lose
it.  That trip took 3 hours and 180 miles.  "Are we there, YET ?".
