Actually, the WEEI towers are in such close proximity to 
Wellesley that their night signal is pretty good despite
the pattern. It's still not too bad in Natick. The WEEI
towers are on the southwestern edge of Needham, not far
from the Wellesley, Dover and Natick lines. 

It does get flakey in Framingham, and I recall being in
a spot in Holliston where open terrain actually allowed
me to see the WEEI towers 10 miles away, but I must've
been right in the null because all I was getting was a
badly phase-distorted weak signal.
