WKBR in Manchester on FM. This was in the mid- to late sixties; I think
the AM was on 1250 by then, but we couldn't get it out Fitchburg way.
WFEA, on the other hand, came in reasonably well. Both stations had a
good sound; which one dominated the market?
I did, too. We moved to Bedford in1957, and in December 1958 I got my
first FM radio. I soon discovered WKBR-FM and found it a good
alternative to the Boston Top 40 stations. One thing I liked was that
on Saturday afternoon they used to play the previous Top 40 from a year
ago. After WCOP gave up rock & roll in 1962, I turned to WKBR even more
because WBZ had talk in the evening and WMEX had a poor nighttime signal
in our corner of Bedford (and had Gerry Williams starting at 10). So
WKBR was what I listened to when I wanted that kind of music in the evening.
