Now there's a concept.  A talk show to lead-into...another talk show.
For the longest time, I couldn't get past the fact that someone was
launching an all-sports station in Boston, but delivering the triple A
rate card to Imus clients, not selling the concept of SPORTS radio to
customers trying to divide up their ad budget in a way that made
sense.  Time wore on with Imus on WEEI, it got easier to accept, and
the bloating and itching vanished.  <long week>  If some of the 92.9
guesses become true regarding a commercial FM talker, then Imus would
be a swell move, IMO.
