Red Sox return to WEEI
Wed Aug 26 16:26:42 EDT 2009
While WEEI is definetely worse than WRKO in my neck of the woods, WBOQ is
good on 104.9 to Manchester, and as you move slightly east, 96.7 (Forgot
Calls) (Rochester) comes in well. WGAM/WGHM at least covers the Rte 3
Corridor from Nashua to Manchvegas, and WTPL kicks in north of there.
-Derry NH (and now weekends in Freeport ME)......where one of those JAB
stations (96.3) has the Sox......
