That kind of speculation will drive you nuts! How's this? The Sox buy 99.5
and then buy JSports (to get ESPN) and make Jessamy Tang presdent of Sox
broadcast operations. She sells off WLLH to Costa, who flips it back to
Spanish. And the folks south of Boston STLL can't get a decent signal for
the Sox games on AM or FM, which leads to the Sox buying WBET. I think this
sort of rank conjecture should make Mr Gallant jealous--if he still reads
this list, which I don't think he does. Shades of the old WEEI 590 under
Celtics ownership.

Now if Entercom can't come to terms with the Red Sox, what becomes of WEEI?
Do the Celts move there from WRKO? When does the Bruins' contract with
Inf--err--CBS run out?
