WVBF was certainly transmitting from Framingham in 1985 when hurricaneGloria took out one of their newly constructed towers.
Fairbanks flipped it to country in 1993 as WCLB.   They had a great opening event at the General Cinemas in Braintree where they showed the George Straitmovie "Pure Country".  I got to talk to Loren and Wally, who were dressed in cowboy garb.  But I digress.
Anyways, I believe it was GM that moved it to Boston. I don't recall an intermediatemove to FM128, so I believe there was country music emanating from the Framinghamtowers when it all began.
