1150 "stunting" now changed to dead air

For at least the last 45 minutes, "Oh Danny Boy" has been replaced by dead
air. It's very clean dead air, though. Can't detect any hum on this radio.
Hum might be easier to detect on a radio with a larger speaker. This is very
reminiscent of the station's almost namesake, WBPS: WTTT 1150 bills itself
as the Boston Tea Party. Less than a year ago, the then WBPS 890 was calling
itself "the Boson Talk Party." This was in 890's "black helicopter"
incarnation, which was also based on ultra-right-wing talk (plus a lot of
wild talk that even most ultra-right-wingers would disavow). Tea Party, Talk
Party, whatever; it now seems that dead air is a staple of both stations. If
you're in the mood for silence, though, the dead air is even more relaxing
than "Oh Danny Boy."
