It was summer of 1962.  I know because I remember writing about it in 
a letter to my sister at summer camp.

In Bedford, where I lived, WCOP had a very strong signal.  WMEX had a 
good signal in the daytime, but it was often very difficult at night, 
with interference from WKBW at 1520.  When I was in law school in the 
late 1960s, I discovered that the WMEX night signal faded rather 
badly as soon as I turned off the main road to my neighborhood.
