It's pretty well taste though. Melnick interviewed Angelo Dundee and George Chuval last week, best radio I've heard in a while. He's in a class by himself doing interviews, but if someone wants a pure hockey show with line combinations arued about, it's the wrong show, more of a sports/music/lifestyles/citybeat sort of thing and frankly, that's more what I want to hear. I couldn't imagine the drudgery of 40 minutes of whether AK should play lw or rw.
Well thats what bugs me...when he actually interviews people and is not plugging a restaurant or store, he's the best in Montreal imo...but there is not enough of that on his show. Too much of his show is fluff and filler I find...Almost like they're trying to fill up enough airtime with commercials to pay his salary.
