I'm a WBOQ fan, too, it being my station of choice when visiting family
in Swampscott. It plays many of the "deeper" oldies that I enjoy back
here in Connecticut on WDRC-FM, although, as a gold=based AC rather than
an oldies or classic hits station, it shies away from anything that
rocks too hard.

I can get WBOQ from Swampscott all the way to Union, Conn., on my car
radio. The signal gets flaky past Framingham and drops out at times in
the Grafton/Oxford area, but I was listening to it just fine in the
Charlton service area parking lot on the Mass Pike yesterday. The signal
was still there along I'-84 until the long downgrade just past the
Connecticut line, after which there's nothing to be heard on 104.9 until
WihS Middletown starts to come in around Mansfield.
