I had WCRN here in Rochester about 4 PM yesterday, and I'm getting a darn 
fine WBZ signal right now at 2 PM - no mistaking Mike Coleman voicing a 
spot for Burk, 410 Beacon Street, Chelsea :-)

(Conditions yesterday favored the south and west a bit more than the east - 
at 4:00 I had WWGB Indian Head MD with Spanish religion instead of the 
FIFTY THOUSAND WATT crankin' voice of NEWS RADIO...)
