"It's the programming, stupid!"

IIRC, WWEL only ran NIGHT games of the Sox, and I don't believe 1430 carried 
them, only 107.9 to augment WITS's pitiful nighttime signal. (even as close 
as Randolph, where I lived at the time, I listened to 107.9 for the night 
games in 1978...)

I cried when I heard disco - not just because I didn't like the music but 
because WWEL ran the Red Sox on both the AM and FM and I couldn't get 1510 
in after moving from Dedham to Holliston.
