105.7 did transmit from Framingham as WKOX-FM through 
the 1960s and 1970, I listened to it in the late '60s.

I recall that with (or right around) their call letter 
change in 1971 to WVBF and the format from a straight 
Top 40 to a "hipper" Top 40 and popular AOR tracks mix,
the transmitter was moved from Framingham to one of the 
128 towers, and their signal suddenly went from mediocre
to blasting in where I grew up in Newton.

I don't recall precisely when the transmitter was moved 
from 128 to the Pru although the studios had been moved 
there a few years before the transmitter under previous 
owners, the transmitter wasn't moved to the Pru until 
after Greater Media bought the station sometime in the 
'90s, then the studios were moved to Morrissey Blvd.
