WCCM 1570 Methuen (to be WUBG?) was heard simulcasting sister station WMVX
Salem NH with oldies for a few days but now is apparently running
syndicated oldies from Westwood One.
New calls sound like WUBG and a nickname of Big 105.3...their FM translator
is on 105.3, licensed to Methuen but broadcasting from Medford. AM 1570 is
50 kW by day. FM 105.3 pushes NW, N, and NE.

Heard 105.3 on 128 last night in Reading and Lynnfield but by Peabody it
started to give way to the Shark from Kittery.
Wonder if the WCCM calls go back to 800 in Lawrence, currently WNNW? 800 in
Roman numerals is CCM.

60s and 70s oldies.On the FM it sounds like one channel isolated but
bridged onto both.On Beatles Hello Goodbye, one hears violin but not
Ringo's drums.
