  Driving through Lowell on my way home about 7:30 Friday evening, I 
happened to hear a live high school football game on WWZN (1510 Boston). 
Burlington at Billerica. I don't know who the announcers were, I heard 3 
local spots for business in Billerica, Burlington, and Woburn. Going into 
the spots was a recorded buffer "Friday Night Lights, 1510 The Zone". After 
the spots, the announcers mentioned some of the other upcoming games they'll 
be airing, involving Woburn, Melrose, Waltham and Lexington to name a few. 
I'm guessing someone's buying the airtime for these games. I don't recall 
hearing high school sports on a 50,000 watt Boston AM before (OK,. I know 
WWZN isn't a powerhouse 50K, but...)

  I don't usually get a decent signal from WWZN on night pattern. Did they 
"forget" to go to night pattern? Does the night pattern put a usable signal 
into Billerica or Burlington?
