Howie Carr, the Fat Bastid, is one of the guys I miss most after leaving the Boston area. I used to listen to him on the way home from work. I particularly miss the Howie Carr Hotline, where one could leave a message to be played after the 5:00 news break.
I hope his new venue is available off the Internet.

How does this AM radio station make SO MANY mistakes SO SUDDENLY (like, over the period of a year or so).

Even the little things are disasters... like the Saturday morning gardening show with Lauzier and Zoppo. They were an amazingly funny team that had excellent chemistry, on a 4 hour popular show. WRKO decides to remove Lauzier from it about 6 months ago, and shorten it to 2 hours. The other two hours now filled by some money show, is probably just a fill-air-time with no listeners whatsoever.

Its as if some mole was brought on staff with the specific goal of imploding the station.

TTK is my station. Graham, Severin, Ingraham, O'Reilly. If they can bounce Eagan and Brody and John and Jeff...it'll be perfection. I like Howie.

Eagan and Brody is painful. John and Jeff are boring. Howie is better than either. If they could get Rush...I'd never leave 96.9...ever.

said Finneran. “I don’t see it as a feud. I don’t see it as a battle.

Yeah Tom maybe you don't see it as a feud, but Howie sure does. He thinks you are the a corrupt scum bag and he hates your guts.

Maybe in his inaugural show at 96.9, he'll joke about having you assassinated and see how you like it.

Taking Imus’ old station and slot and contributing to the destruction of Tommy Finnerian. Sweet.

One wonders about his loyality, though. WRKO/WHDH made him what he is. They must really be difficult to work with (and stoopid, hiring Finnerian and losing Carr is the daily double) if it got this far.

” “I don’t see it as a feud. I don’t see it as a battle. I am going to do my show, and I think the results will speak for themselves.” “

Right you are, Tom Finneran. It isn’t going to be a contest of any kind whatsoever. And the results WILL speak for themselves. You and RKO are toast. I can pick up Rush by podcast, with the added bennie of being able to fast forward through the drivel to get to the meat.

Howie belongs in the afternoon, not the morning. Not 5:30. They should just flip him right into the exact same time slot and guarantee they take all his current listeners. Why risk anything by messing with a winning formula? It makes no sense to me. They should go out an get D&C for the morning and complete the destruction of Entecom-Boston.

As long as I can continue to listen to Howie online, I don’t care from where he does his show. < |:)~

Sources said WRKO program director Jason Wolfe was so angered by the news of Carr’s exit yesterday that he smashed a glass award sitting on his office desk.

Yeah ... his job just got a whole lot more difficult, not to mention less secure.
