Posted on 07/12/2007 11:39:53 AM PDT by raccoonradio

Howie must REALLY be back: the WRKO site says there will be a death pool. What will they let him say about his situation?

THURSDAY, JULY 12

1st Hour Lady Bird Johnson, the widow of Lyndon B. Johnson, whose tumultuous presidency often overshadowed her considerable achievements as an activist first lady, environmentalist and founder of a multimillion-dollar media business, died Wednesday at her home in Austin, Texas. She was 94. She was also in the Death Pool which means for one hour it is open again! Call in with your prediction of which celebrity will next shuffle off this mortal coil...

2nd Hour

3rd Hour CHUMP LINE!617-779-3469 and leave Howie, Sandy or Happy a message about today's stories or anything else buzzing around your bonnet and we may play it back on the air!

4th Hour

Should be interesting today. might be one of those weird shows where absolutly nothing is mentioned by either the host or the callers. I’m sure Howie will at least slip a few comments in.

I’m guessing Howie’s lawyers have suggested he not say anything about the move to WTKK. Not that Howie doesn’t know enough to nod when he can speak and wink when you can nod.

I wonder if doing so could somehow hurt his legal case.

I agree.I’m guessing a “cease-fire” is in effect for both sides(For now)

So, anyone wanna take bets on how long before somebody gets air-dumped for trying to put the WRKO GM, WRKO itself, etc., in the death pool?

I was going to call in with my death pool pick: WRKO.
But I know I’d never get on the air with that wisecrack.

Anybody catch Howie saying “Here today,gone tomorrow!”? It was said with some emphasis. Howie sounds like it’s killing him not to talk about it

Howie probably came in early just so he could run into Finneran.

I would love to be a fly on the wall with all of the conversations that are still going on and that will be going on in the future between Howie Carr and all of the “higher ups” at WRKO.

Christmas bonuses at WRKO will be left over Bum Magnents and crappy CD’s.

Your optimistic enough to believe that WRKO will definitely still be around by this December.

Anyone else catch Howie mentioning how much Don Imus has done for his career?

I really enjoy listening to Howie in the afternoon, it’s going to be difficult to listen to him in the morning. Actually impossible if he doesn’t get any affiliates up in NH.

I’ll bet Jason Wolfe is sitting in his office listening to the broadcast. I’d also wager steam is coming from his ears.

nothing yet...of course once HC starts on WTKK get used to a different voice doing the intro and “bumpers”. No Dana
Hersey. Maybe the “voice” of WTKK who is heard saying things like “Boston’s only talk station” (er, I guess they mean
WRKO isn’t full time what with the Sox, but what about
WTTT 1150?) and “She’s goooooooooood! Ingraham! on 96.9
FM talk”

_That_ guy...

Yeah, no Dana Hersey is gonna be doubleplusungood. Dana’s the best thing to hit ‘RKO since, since, um, Howie Carr. :-)

Can’t have Dana following Howie all over town, though. That would look bad.

- although I will miss Dana I’m hoping the folks at Ovaltine and Ira motors do not have an advertising contract with WTKK. Those folks I will not miss in the least.

But seriously, what am I even talking about. I wont be able to listen to Howie due to the time slot. 5:30 AM start time? Ouch.
