If you're on the South Shore, the North Shore (across the water) or have a
good tuner in greater Boston, there's still oldies programming including
50's and early 60's music (of variable quality, but some quite good)
including many not often played songs on WATD 95.9 from Marshfield.

Suburban AC formatted during weekdays, oldies programming is mainly
weeknight graveyards 2 - 5 AM, Saturdays 10 AM through midnight, and on
Sundays 10 PM - 2 AM (Little Walter's former slot on 103.3), Bill Clark
specializes in 50's doo-wop and R&B. I expect he'll be picking up a few more
listeners especially in the South Shore area.

On the North Shore there's also "Uncle Henry's Basement", a specialty 50's
R&B/doo-wop show on Salem State's WMWM 91.7 Saturdays 6 - 8 PM.
