Wee Eye

I'm curious how the distant districts in the proposed WEEI regional 
footprint will actually "take" to a decidedly Boston show?  I suppose 
you could look at how Howie did (or didn't) but sports is a more 
universal subject than the Brothers Bolger. 

Burlington, Vermont has a very strong local sports interest, e.g., 
Catamounts, high school, Lake Monsters.  There is, decidely, a Red Sox 
lean with the occasional Yankees infiltrate [cough].

I am sensing that "New England regionalization" will be the next big 
flavor or "solution" to what ails New England radio.  Call me 
skeptical.  Coming from the Lowell area where you need a passport to go 
from the Highlands over to Pawtucketville and a going away party to move 
to Dracut (really) I just not so sure.
