WMEX 50 KW DA days

Thanks to all for the retrospectives and nostalgia relating to WMEX.  
While I was at MIT it was one of two "consistent" Top 40 stations (the 
other being WCOP) that I listened to.   Unlike WCOP, it was often quite 
usable in Central NY at night, frequently comparable to WKBW in 
strength, for connecting with Boston while I was home for breaks or 
summer vacations. 

Ah, the good old days of Arnie "Woo-Woo" Ginsburg....

And to this day I occasionally catch myself quietly singing along to the 
Adventure Car Hop mantra -- "Out on Route 1 in Saugus, come dressed just 
as you are....Adventure Car Hop is the place to go, where you never get 
out of your car."
