Wolfe did nothing for WEEI. That was Bill Belichick and Tom Brady with a little, Curt Schilling, Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz thrown in to cover the summer months...
I listened to WEEI almost around the clock until I got my Sirius satellite radio, and I'd say it wasn't so much the Patriots that "made" WEEI, but the Red Sox. While it's true that WEEI's Patriot content during the football season is outstanding and very compelling---thanks to Fred Smerlas and Steve DeOssie, mainly---I think it's safe to say that Sox content dominates WEEI's programming year-round. I can remember distinctly the Big Show, etc., discussing Sox off-season moves in depth while the Patsies were making their historic Superbowl runs.
WEEI still has a pretty good line-up; the exception being the terrible Dale & Holley show during mid-days. Glen Ordway's "The Big Show" is one of the best shows in Boston, and it's always a constant struggle for me in the afternoons trying to figure out which one to listen to---The Big Show or the Howie Carr show. And I think Mikey Adams is dynamite in the evenings on WEEI.
WRKO? Basically, except for Howie and the fact that I have to tune it in now for Sox games, the station is dead to me, a la Fredo Corleone.
