There may be many who did/do like it, but it also alienates at least half of your potential audience. Once that half was given a choice as to who they could listen to, they opted to listen to the other guys.

Oh god. Just when I thought the "Welker or Talib" topic hadn't been beaten to death enough, Bertrand says, "Coming up after the break, we'll continue with your Patriots calls and mix in some Spring Training talk as well."

I'm sure the reason they talk more about the NFL and MLB even right now is simply because they get more calls on those topics. As frustrating as it is to hear the same debate every day for so long there's really no point in us all fussing about it any longer.

Why do you listen to a station you don't like? The satisfaction of turning it off in disgust?

I have never stated that I don't like that station. I like both. I also can't stand certain shows on both.

The only problem with their show is that you have suffer through listening to Felger and Mazz.

Aside from that, the show is aces.

From Rich's Facebook:

Hello everyone. This is Rich with an update on Mary. Today is the last day of Mary's 7 day long chemo treatment and she is doing fantastic. She's very sleepy and exhausted, but that is to be expected after the 7 day butt-whooping she just went through.

For the next 7 days, Mary will be in the "nadir" period which lasts 7 days. It's a waiting period where the hospital sees how Mary's body reacts to the chemotherapy. During that time, we will get the results of her bone marrow test and find out if she needs a transplant.

Tomorrow we will be having a small party in the hospital room, not only to celebrate finishing her "7&3" chemo, but also to cut her hair for the Locks of Love charity, so she can donate it to sick children before it falls out.

Mary's friends and family have been amazing. Since the moment she arrived last Thursday, Mandy has not left her side once. Every night she has slept next to her and there is no one who knows more and has more info about what Mary is going through than her sister Mandy. Mandy feeds her, makes her laugh, motivates her, inspires her. Mary truly could not do this without her. She is a godsend.

Mary's mother has been in Boston and watching our boys before Mary was even admitted to the hospital. Her boundless energy is no match for even our 2 year old Max.

My parents have been amazing with Mary, helping me behind the scenes to get our lives organized during this time of temporary chaos.

And this bump in the road has truly shown us just how many friends we have. So many friends volunteering to watch our boys, setting up care websites, making dinners for the family, so many big and great gestures to name...Mary truly thanks you all.

(Mary told me to add the following) "My husband has been unbelievable, running back and forth between the hospital and watching the guys, getting the housing situation set up for family. And because I can't see the guys for at least a month, he's been giving the little guys much needed hugs."

Mary is the toughest person I know. Yet she is handling this with such positivity and grace. Thank you so much for all of your emails, thoughts, & prayers. They help more than you will ever know.

-Rich & Mary

Not sure why, but what Rich and his family are going through is really hitting close to home with me. Maybe cuz I've been listening to him on the radio since day 1 with BCN, but still I've never met the guy or anything. Really really sad situation but he seems to be handling it about as perfectly as one could hope for. I give him (and of course his wife Mary) a boat load of credit for tackling this head on like they have.

That move reeks of desperation. It's like Wolfie is sitting around trying to brainstorm how they can get the ratings to stop skewing towards an older audience, and this is the best answer they can come up with...

As a regular D&C listener, I think Kirk is as good a fit as they were going to find. I personally enjoy cynicism spewed on the radio, so this is right up my ally. Vanilla interviews, and comedy bits can only entertain for so long.

Isn't that what he is supposed to do? Make changes to keep your ratings up.

And what is wrong with entertaining an older audience?
