I had trouble getting WMEX in my section of Bedford.  As I recall, 
when I was in law school, I would have WMEX on the car radio as I was 
driving home, and the signal would suddenly fade as I turned off the 
main road to my neighborhood. 

What about WCOP in its days as a top-40 station?  While it was the 
station we all listened to in Bedford, I assume it dropped the format 
because wasn't doing well with it.
