Re: "Lost 45's"

LOL. Actually, listeners began this "sleazy psuedo grass roots campaign" to bring "The Lost 45s" back to Boston radio...not me. I am quite content working in internet radio, where it is much more fun and less constraining. My e-mail was sent out after a listener's campaign had begun...but I am more than willing to talk face to face with any local Program Director who has half a brain and the balls to do it...there just doesn't seem to be anyone like that in this city currently.

I agree.  This seems to be a pretty sleazy pseudo grass-roots campaign.
If Barry wants his to get show on the air in this (or any) market, maybe he should pitch the show, in person, to the PD in question and let the decision succeed or fail on the show's merit, not on some phony campaign.
