My mistake.  I didn't pick up on the fact that you said 1150, not 
1510.  At times they seemed to be trying to recreate the old WMEX 
ambiance on 1150, but they didn't do it very well.  I do know of one 
of the old "WMEX Good Guys" who made it onto 1150 at least once.  One 
of the Fenways did an airshift for one Saturday or Sunday afternoon.  
Just a one-shot, though, and I don't know which Fenway it was.

I don't know why WMEX 1150 couldn't have used some of the old Deejay 
names, since they were station names and probably weren't owned by 
anyone.  They could have had a Dan Donovan, Fenway, or Melvin X. 
Melvin if they wanted to.  Or since by that time it was generally 
known that Mel Miller was Melvin X. Melvin, perhaps they could have 
created a new name, Melvin X. something else.  They did, 
occasionally, use the "WMEX Good Guys" slogan.
