I remember that around 1960-61, they had automated separate classical 
music programming on FM, which they said was originating from their 
transmitter in Lexington.  I suspect the AM was originating from 
there, too because at least two of their DJs lived in Bedford.  I 
believe Paul Knight was one; I don't remember who the other one was.

In Bedford the WCOP signal was as strong as WBZ. It was a very 
popular station among local teens, and their DJs were frequently 
hired to do record hops at the high school.  The WMEX signal had 
problems in Bedford, especially at night, when it sometimes was 
overwhelmed by WKBW.  Once I saw WPTR mentioned in the school 
newspaper as a station that people listened to.
