Just returned to Vt. from the Dracut homestead.  TRIED to catch WCCM (1490
Haverhill).  Daytime was a stretch, nighttime impossible.  Who were they trying
to kid?  Lowellians were having a hard enough time buying a Lawrence signal as
having any local relevance.  Add _another_ ten miles up the river, and.....  To
call that a rimshot Spinners signal to Lowell would be describing a kindergarten
drummer boy starter kit rimshot.  But, I guess it's more of a need to occupy the
booth with wires, people with headphones and other neat stuff.
