work, and although I find WTKK 96.9 to be a very good, if not great
talk station

with Jay Severin, Gayle Fee, Laura Raposa, Jeanneane Graf, Mike
Barnicle, etc.

There is one annoying thing going on, and I've heard it over and over

If a guest on one of the talk shows mentions another station's call

With Bush's speech  going on at the Republican convention the other
night, I was looking for a talk show that wasn't carrying it, and I
couldn't find one.

One positive thing was, as I was flipping through the dial I could
always go back to WTKK and hear what I missed live on WBZ, WBUR, or
