In my experience, the Newton/Needham area is iffy. There's plenty of 
93.7 signal there, but the "RF haze" from the FMs in the immediate area 
overloads all but the best of radios. I'm sure the same is true in the 
Back Bay. If the Sox went back to simulcasting on 850 (and, really, what 
good reason is there not to do so?), it would fix that problem very easily.
