That sounds right.  WCOP ruled in Bedford, too.  With a transmitter 
in Lexington, they had a signal stronger that WBZ.  Probably the same 
in Arlington, too.  They always gave an address on Clarendon Street 
in Boston, but I think their studios were actually at the Lexington 
site.  At least a couple of WCOP DJs lived in Bedford and frequently 
did the school record hops.

I don't remember that one.
