They don't even have a clean feed down the line for the WEEI network stations during normal programming. Their ad placement and timing (is it still called "traffic"?) is horrible. Try listening to transitions in and out of breaks on WEEI-FM. Or, even better, on WVEI-FM. It's a trainwreck sometimes, and Entercom has done nothing to make it better in the four years since putting sports on 103.7.
