Well, maybe the station had several offices or locations or studios around 
town-- I just found a 29 March 1935 article that said W1XAL had an office 
at 70 Brookline Ave... that might not have been so unusual for a station 
that was known for doing educational broadcasts-- according to the article, 
70 Brookline Ave was also home to at least one organization that offered 
adult ed and certificate progams to students (The Massachusetts University 
Extension Service).

Years later, in the WMEX days, it was a pretty grimy little location.  But 
maybe in the 30s, it was affordable office space for non-profits...
