Southern NH is tough.  The Sox really need to be on an FM there, or  
get the games back on WGIR-AM at the very least.  I live in Worcester  
county, and WCRN fills the Worcester and Metrowest holes nicely.  Once  
you get south of the Pike, 103.7 kicks in for just about all of  
Southeast MA and WXTK covers the Cape.  104.9 has the North Shore, and  
the Red Sox Nation parts of CT is covered by WEEI-FM, WTIC and  
longtime affiliates WILI/Willimantic and WINY/Putnam.  Maine is pretty  
well covered too.  Right now the big gaping hole is Southern New  
Hampshire....and Bob's mailroom....
