I can recall WCOP was very popular with teens in Newton and Waltham at night - WMEX had issues :)

I lived in Cambridge and my Mom used to put the phone up to the radio so her sister could hear Jerry Williams in West Newton.

I am guessing COP decided that going MOR and running NBC's Monitor made more sense for them with the bottom line. 

WEZE at the time had become #1 in Boston with the beautiful music format. They would remain king until WJIB blew them away around 1967. I am guessing WEZE did not want to run Monitor and NBC went shopping and found WCOP.
