Right.  I had a lot of trouble picking up WCRB 102.5 in my downtown 
office and in Brookline with several newer radios, but I've had no 
problem with 1960s-vintage tube sets.  Or even with the solid-state 
Sylvania table radio that I bought in 1968.  

BTW, I moved my office last week, and I've found that in my new 
office, with that same Sylvania radio, I can pick up WCRB 99.5 with 
no antenna connected at all.
