I don't remember it at all.  But the classic I just thought of was a 
song called "High School, USA."  It had a number of regional versions 
which listed a bunch of local high schools.  I didn't know that at 
the time and wondered whether the whole country was hearing a song 
that mentioned Boston-area schools.

There was another one which I thought, at first, was some national 
hit.  I think it was called "Song of the City," and it sang the 
praises of "Boston, Boston, that's my home town."  But the song ended 
with "The most wonderful sound of our home town is WCOP, Boston, 
Boston, that's my home town."  Of course, it was only heard on WCOP.
A very clever promotion.  I wonder who performed it.
