I don't know the history of the signals in terms of who got there first (without digging through the history cards anyway), but 590 Boston has main lobes that go north/south and nulls to the east (not a big deal when originating from Medford) and west (presumably these were required to reduce the adjacent channel signal heading toward WTAG. and Albany).

It occurs to me that WTAG must have an interesting transmission pattern 
to avoid interference with 590 in Boston and 590 in Albany.
