1430 and 107.9 were simulcast in 1979, 80.  Then sometime in late '80  or 
early '81, adult standards came to 1430. Out went all the Sunday ethnic  
programs on 1430.   -  The COL-change from Medford to Everett  didn't happen til 
March 1985, and that was so nighttime service could  happen.  With a huge 
null to the west-southwest, most of Medford would  not have been covered 
signal-wise, in fact so much so that the night signal did  not make the 
requirements of covering the COL (Medford).  So, to make  a station cover its COL at 
night.... change the COL.  After nighttime  service began, the station ID I 
came up with, to soften the blow to Medford,  was: "1430 
WXKS-Everett-Boston, with studios in Medord".  That was used for  at least 6 months after 
March 1985.
