I did. This was a note that a reporter with the Marblehead Reporter newspaper 
had posted at rec.radio.broadcasting. I never heard if it was valid or not.

 in the midst of the Boston market, most likely using Malden as its new COL.
 Of course, the station would suffer from the same problem as WXKS (AM); the
 night signal to the west of the site would be atrocious, but coverage of
 most of Boston would be OK. >>

Does anyone really think the Ashers would sell? They've held onto WESX for 50 
years or so and, while I know WJDA is their "flagship" station, I'm sure 
they're not rushing to sell 1230.
