Red Sox return to WEEI

One way to have WEEI broadcast from Burlington would be a format and calls swap as I suggested: WEEI with sports at 680 from
Burlington, WRKO at 850 with talk from Needham (think that's where they broadcast from). Of course you can't do a simple
call swap so they'd have to go through a procedure like what CBS did recently.

WEEI already did a move from 590 to 850 back in the nineties, when they took over the old WHDH (cue toilet flush sound effect).

Adding an FM signal like 93.7 would help WEEI even if just in doing Sox or Celtics games. (WBOQ, just down Rt 128 from Peabody's
WMKK stick, might not be so happy...) Go to Sox games then go back to music. And Entercom could boast, as they no doubt do
with their WEEI simulcasts in western MA, RI, and the Cape, that you'd get a nice clear static free signal on FM --for the Sox
or for everything.
