Don't forget 1600, which I believe was the original brokered-time
Spanish station in this market. I know it isn't 100% Spanish but it
must be more than 80% and it would not surprise me to learn that,
thanks to its longevity, it bills more than any other Boston market
station that programs in SS. I think 1470 also runs some Spanish but
perhaps only as simulcasts of 1360.
