BBC Up All Night
In 2004, BBC News presenter Rhod Sharp moved to Marblehead, Massachusetts. Wishing to continue to broadcast the BBC Radio 5 Live show Up All Night, he made an arrangement with WESX's owners to use the studios and ISDN line to connect him with Broadcasting House in London, England. The arrangement came to an end in 2007, when Sharp and his wife moved to 18th-century house in Marblehead’s Old Town section, which included a suitably equipped home-studio.
