Too bad this can’t be settled. I wonder if it really is lib judges playing payback, or if it is really because Howie legitimately messed up in his contract negotiations. Todd Feinburg is painful. I rarely listen but do check in occasionally. His straight stock is painfully dry and boring. Sometimes he tries to be humorous, in the model of Howie, and just plain isn’t. He is totally out of touch with many of the old show standing stories and jokes, so when they come up, he is clueless. And it doesn’t help that he is just plain uniformed about many news and pop culture topics. Good grief.
I used to listen to Imus in the morning and Howie in the afternoon. I am pretty much a talk show junkie, but after losing these two, I realize, its not so much the topics, but how they are handled. When you lose the spice that Imus (like him or hate him, he did cover the news well and had lots of well placed guests) and howie bring, you realize that all the talk shows cover the same topics over and over again, and without an interesting delivery, it just gets old.
Choices are getting scarce. If you are unfortunate enough to be in the area of Cape Cod and close enough to get WXTKs morning show, That is really the bottom.

But Lambert, who thinks the formula to good radio is gripe about everything...”I mean, you know, its like, good grief, I can’t, its just that,Jees Louise, I mean, can’t they,Why don’t,...”
