What's the deal with AM drive on Boston radio? L&W seem to be getting 
the job done - and they are funny.  Funny and radio in the same 
sentence...what a concept. WBZ is keeping the news deal going on. I've 
been out of the market for six years now but visit often. I used to look 
forward to spinning the dial of AM drive.  Now, it's almost not worth 
the digital exercise. What seems to be missing is rock solid name 
recognition, king-makers, local icons on Boston radio. And am I 
jaundiced in my view that it is intentional? Keeps salaries down. And 
because the new breed of broadcasters never worked in the radio kitchen, 
just the counting room.
