  1. until WRKO came along in March of 1967, Boston did not have a 24-hour top 40 station with a signal that could cover the entire greater Boston area. WCOP 1150 had been 24 hours but stopped playing the hits in August of 1962. and its night pattern was atrocious. WMEX 1510 stopped playing music from 10 pm to 6 am when it went all-talk all night. WBZ stopped the music for “Program PM” nightly from 9:30 to ll:30 and later, “Contact” from 6:30 to 8 preceded by a half-hour news block. WORL 950 tried resurrecting its ’50s pop music format after a morning religious block but signed off at sunset. I used to listen to WCOP-FM 100.7 back home in NH when it simulcast 1150 back in the late ’50s-early ’60s. it had a great mono signal but FM hadn’t caught on with a mass audience yet.
