WEEI radio network in Maine

Normally only 850 carries BC.   Providence and Worcester occasionally  
run games, but not often.  I don't know about Springfield.  My guess  
is that there's not a lot of audience for BC sports outside of  
Eastern Mass.   Either that or the BC rights only cover 850 and  
limited games on Worcester and Providence.

I know a lot of people who listen to WEEI, but not in the morning.   
D&C essentially have the extreme wingnut audience that would normally  
listen to WRKO if it wasn't for Finneran.  They also inherited much  
of Howard Stern's listenership once he defected to satellite.  Jerry  
Callahan is so far to the right that he makes most rational thinking  
conservatives look like Ted Kennedy.  His act wears thin quickly and  
John Dennis is a humorless empty suit, but they have their audience.
