I recall WNTN signing on in very early 1968. Their West Newton transmitter
blew away the old 1510 WMEX on my el-cheapo Radio Shack transistor radio
from where I grew up three miles away in Newtonville and I had to buy a
better radio.

WMEX was weak in that area anyway due to the directional pattern from their
Quincy transmitter not going into the west suburbs very well.

WNTN still sometimes faintly inducts into the office end of the two-way
radio system of a taxi company I work at in West Newton.
