"Companion Radio" 98.9 Beverly

A while back, I was driving near Beverly Hospital and noticed some
big-band-era music at 98.9 FM. Not sure where it came from. Then
Kaimbridge Goldchild emailed me and asked if I ever heard a "non-ID"
station on that frequency, in that area. I told him what I'd heard.

He said he went to that area (Brimball Ave. in Beverly) and noticed
the signal was strongest near the Blueberry Hill Rest Home. He asked
around and found that they're the ones broadcasting it (not really
a powerful signal; flea-powered. Only can be picked up from one end
of Brimball Ave. to another.)

Today I heard them say "This is Companion Radio--Potpourri" as
I drove past the rest home around 4 pm. A quick web search led me
to this link--looks like they're a service for "senior facilities"
by satellite. Checked out their schedule--wow, I'm nearly 43,
yet it sounded interesting to me: OTR shows like "Jack Benny"
and "Burns and Allen"; jazz; folk, etc. Wonder if they'd
provide service to more powerful stations?
