Re: RE: Pohistorynow.com on clear channels

Although they're licensed to Worcester, WAAF does treat itself (and ratings also show) it's legitimate to call it a Boston station, as contrasted to WSRS and WXLO, which while reaching most if not all ot the Boston market do not market themselves as Boston stations...

After all that....my point is that WAAF does reach most of the Springfield market.

I've always been able to hear WBZ's day signal quite well out around 
Amherst and Springfield (even without WBZA adding its few watts).  No 
Boston-area FM station gets out that far.
