Re: WJUL "Lowell SunRise"

I too am surprised. I thought that something that was in the works for over 4 months would have done some run-throughs or practice sessions. Not the case. The way they produced their first show, is the stuff of what makes up my anxiety nightmares! (Yes, I was there.) Only so much can be attributed to "first day jitters."

I would have thought that Paul Sullivan's  WBZ experience would have brought something to the show, but it seems that with Bob at the mic, Paul's reverted to his old WLLH days and ways... and boy, the "Lowell Sunrise" sound is worse than the old 1400 ever was! Sad.

Yes, I'm a WJUL alumn, but I'm also a radio guy. I'd give credit where it's due, but... it's... so... hard... to find something good to say... about this show.
