I think it's sunk a long way since WMEX.

Too bad that in 1961, WMEX did not have the present 50kW 1510 facility 
on Waverley Oaks Road, Waltham (near Belmont line).

As a sixth-grader living next to Menotomy Rocks Park in Arlington, I 
gladly listened to Arnie Ginsburg at night even when WTOP 1500 DC and 
WKBW 1520 Buffalo were scraping 5 kW WMEX with sideband splatter.

I don't suppose anyone would listen to such a compromised signal for 
ANY program content nowadays ... especially a 12 year old.

And it is too bad that the 1510 signal is wasted on such rubbish when 
poor Bob Bittner is putting forth great music programming on WJIB whose 
5-watt night signal often gets pounded by Toronto nearly within sight 
of the Fresh Pond tower.
