Since 29 Apr., when I noted the Red Sox (English) on (and either that
morning or the morning before I *did* hear them, still with Spanish).
And, yes, ever since the switch they've been on 24/7 (carrying sports
talk in the overnights), w/day power, completely obscuring WLW
think someone should drop THE BIG ONE an e-mail, advising them of the
unlawful interference? P=)
BTW, speaking about WLW in the overnight, The Truckin' Bozo, Dale
has retired on disability and his son, Steve (not, nor any relation to,
WFAN's talk host)--who had been doing weekends--is now the show's
weeknight host, and the new weekend host, Eric "Bubba Bo" Boulanger,
sounds (voicewise) just like 'RKO's Pat Whitley!
I just found an article about "Bubba Bo" (who, apparently, is trying to
tinker with the show's format ,and the listeners and the Sommers' are
none too happy!) and Dale's departure:


Likely related, 1.180-WHAM has dropped The Bozo show (returning to
to Coast AM"), leaving WLW and 1.170-WWVA as the only regional
