The 1935 BY says 500 watts, daytime only, for 920 in Needham. The
phone number was Wellesley 2029, and the program director was Edward
W. Center. The same issue shows Joseph Kirby's WMFH as a construction
permit on 1120 (also a 500-watt daytimer), and WMEX as 250-D/100-N in
Chelsea with the old ABC network.
Here's a roundup of the Boston facilities from 1935:
WAAB 1410 500 W 58 Winter St
WBZ 990 50 kW Hotel Bradford
WBZA 990 1000 W (not clear why both are listed) Hotel Bradford
WEEI 590 1000 W "Boston"
WHDH 830 1000 W-D Hotel Touraine
WMEX 1500 250 W-D, 100 W-N Hotel Manger
WMFH cp 1120 500 W-D
WNAC 1230 2000 W-D, 1000 W-N 21 Brookline Ave.
