As for the WMEX calls...

When this is all straightened out, the WMEX calls 
will be going to a new 100 watt LPFM on 105.9 that 
just signed on last weekend in Rochester NH, being 
programmed as a new non-commercial version of the 
former 106.5 FM WMEX oldies station that was located 
in that area (lic. to Farmington) from 1998 to 2008 
until it was bought by a Christian network (now WNHI).

Programmed by Gary James, former PD of WMEX FM 106.5  
and the oldies incarnation of WMEX, Boston on 1150 AM
from 1986-1988, like those stations, this one emulates
the sound of the original 1510 WMEX Boston with a wide 
playlist of oldies from the late '50s, '60s and early 
'70s, original and recreated WMEX jingles, occasional 
drop-ins voiced by Arnie Ginsburg and current voice-
tracked DJ's (some from the Boston 1150 incarnation).

This is the first time that the WMEX oldies format is 
being programmed as a non-comm with PSA's and local 
underwriting announcements from the Rochester and NH 
Lakes region area, more local elements are said to be 
added soon.

However, for the time being, the real calls of "WMEX"
are WMVI-LP (not WMVY-LP) Rochester, NH!
