I agree with everything in your post. That's the reason I defected for the
most part to 1510. I got fed up with the 'EEI program format of three or
four talk-show host and/or sports journalists in the studio yelling at each

So it's either 1510 for me, or the Sports offerings on XM.

That said, however, WEEI seems to pretty successful in the ratings with
'yelling at each other' programming.
