He's correct. Like "Big City 101.3", "Choice 102.9" puts out
a lot of power and can be heard well beyond Route 128 in most
directions, as well as in Boston proper. It is strongest in 
the Dorchester/Mattapan area (near Norfolk St.), though.

These two high-powered pirates (and others) have been on the 
air from the inner city for at least a couple of years now.
If you're regular Boston area radio listeners, I'm surprised
that you haven't already heard them yet.
