Newton Centre is on the border of what we used to call "intermod alley", 
the area around the towers near Route 128 where receiver overloading from 
the nearby transmitters interferes with reception of more distant signals. 
I've noticed an increase in interference to WHRB's signal on my car radio 
due to something new going on the air in the area; I've not ye had the 
time to figure out what it may be. But it wouldn't suprise me at all if 
receiver overloading is an issue with receiving WJIB's translator in 
Newton Centre.
