WKFY-98.7 seems to be putting in more '50s and '60s music, mostly of a mellow non-rock variety. Once in a while, there are "surprise" songs that can be from any time in the last 55 or so years. Though these are usually hits / near-hits, they don't show up on the air that often, so that's the surprise factor. WKFY has grabbed some of my in-car listening time that had gone mostly to Ocean 104.7 or Easy 99.1 previously. Too bad the signal is a bit choppy on some streets in Yarmouth and Barnstable. From 134 in Dennis eastward, no problem. Better signal than "Dunes 102.3" Truro and the 97.7 Nantucket thing, other not-bad but strength-challenged stations down here.
I still have 102.9, 101.9, 93.5 etc. when I want things "rockier" and 103.9 for country. Usually in the car CD player I have Helen Shapiro's Greatest Hits when I want to hear the world's greatest singer (who never seems to get played on the radio).
On the AM side it's WBZ and WCBS for news, WROL for the Saturday Irish Hit Parade, and WJIB and WJTO (when I can hear them).
