Thanks to Rob Landry, Kevin Vahey, Donna Halper, A. Joseph Ross, Martin 
Waters, Chris Sullivan, and Dan Strassberg for all the comments about 
Boston Radio 50 Years Ago.

I hadn't included WKOX (1190 Framingham) because in 1963 it was a 
"rimshot" signal of low strength in downtown Boston.  For the same 
reason, I didn't mention Marlborough (1470), Lowell (980, 1400), 
Lawrence (800, 1400), Haverhill (1490), Beverly (1570), or Brockton 
(1410, 1460).

Of course the eventual successor to 1190, namely WXKS 1200, with more 
power and the Newton site, is obviously no longer in the "rimshot" 

Additional comments will be welcomed.

One of the better portable radios I had back in those days was the one
