You nailed it Dan. At least for me personally. All 3 listed nuts on and why I stopped listening and never went back.

absolutely right



They just played a message from Sean McAdam that started "I told you to talk more hockey Glenn" sarcastically and then went on to wish him luck. It's too bad McAdam isn't on anymore.

I actually think the Jason Wolfe neutering of D&C politically is what hurt them. I think a line graph comparing ratings and format change would prove it. It was great having debates about pitbulls, global warming, and dumping snow in the ocean.

Now, who really wants to hear vanilla interviews with Mike Napoli and Ryan Dempster from spring training?

I notice alot of people who liked Dale and Holley love Felger and Mazz. Same guy running both shows. James Stewart. Excellent producer. Always knows when to chime in the sound bites.He's very talented.

Saucier just sung a song about the Big Show and said something about Felger smoking weed. Is there a back story to this?

Did Felger steal him from EEI? He was very high on him when he switched stations. I wasn't sure if he was let go or jumped ship.

Comment From Nate
If you are John and Gerry are you in any real hurry to get on a plane back to Guest Street?
3:25
Chad Finn: Nope. Wouldn't doubt if only one of them comes back. Just spitballing, but Callahan/Minihane/Paoletti might be a very good show.



Legendary caller Joey in the North End just called in to the Big Show.

Is Ordway done, or did they let him finish the week?

Im not sure, but he switched right after the Dale and Holley breakup. Did a few Mutt and Merloni shows, and jumped ship. "Be Real", was original F&M producer, and him leaving created the opening. He's a smart guy, probably heard all the Dale and Holley fan backlash, and saw the iceberg comming.

I lean to the right.. pretty far in come cases.. but I can't stand D&C either.. why? Because I am not going to get my political opinion from two sports writers, or in the case of WAAF 3 uneducated dj's.

Does Joey from the North End normally call EEI? I've heard him on 98.5 plenty, wondering if he's a regular on both stations.

Laughed hysterically ay last nights whiner line when fake Eddie Andelman called in to announce the Glenn Ordway elimination party, and to wish 'Jimmy' good luck next week with his new partner ( as in mistaking Holley for Jimmy Myers). Maxwell was in hysterics.

Glenn went out of his way to say he did not think Jason was responsible for the firing.

This was a salary dump of almost 400K a year and EEI had an out clause if ratings dropped.

after listening to him sign off for the final time it kind of felt like I was putting down an old pet.

I remember when Dale signed off (of "Dale & Holley") 2 years ago. It was really emotional and you could tell he was choked up as he uttered his final words: "Big Show's coming up next..."

I found it ironic he said several times so and so 'got it' because Glenn's demise was he didn't in the end

For those interested, Johnson and Flynn are filling in for T&R this morning and they're talking about the game last night.

Flynn does a really good job. Should be on the midday show with Zolak in place of Gresh. Brings much more football knowledge, doesn't have an absolutely grating voice or the mind boggling sense of entitlement. Would also help reign Zo in because they aren't friends.
