You shouldn't have any trouble with WHRB in that part of town; it
broadcasts from One Financial Center with 1700 watts.

As for WGBH, wait until their new transmitter site in Needham is finished;
the signal should be quite a bit better than it is from the present site.

WRKO being an AM, your best bet is to be near a window and use something
like a Select-A-Tenna to null out any local interference.
