Would syndicating WEEI in northern New England work?

You've seen those posters--kinda 3D maps, with Boston at the bottom center,
128 a little more than half way up, 495 about 80% of the way up, and
California right near the top? That's obviously where Bob is coming from.
But what do you expect from the Hub of the Universe? You mean there's
another Burlington in New England? And it's in Vermont??? You're kidding,
right? What does a place with all cows want with a nice place name like
Burlington? Burlington knows its place--and it's right on Route 128.
