Yes, I remember when the Red Sox moved from WHDH radio and channel 4
television to WITS and channel 38, neither of which came in all that
well in Bedford, my father remarked that he couldn't understand why a
big-league ball club was on minor-league stations.
What made things worse was that our little neighborhood in Bedford had
worse nightime reception of 1510 than elsewhere in town. I remember
once driving home at night, listening to WMEX on the car radio, and I
heard the signal fade out just as I turned the corner off the main road
onto the side street that led to our neighborhood.
