On the humble Delco radio in the Chevy Astro, WBZ was like a local
after sunset in Columbus, OH, Ashland, KY, Cumberland, MD, and up and
down 81 in PA.  It seemed to get tough in Hartford, CT.  If you listen
to a station by skywave then get in closer to its local service area,
is there some sort of phase cancellation or thingamajic whoozit that
fargles the bendix spring?  Curious, for starters....
