I don't think you can leave out Dale Dorman.  He had a major impact on  
Boston Radio for many years.  He's also in the Radio Hall of Fame.

And Matt Siegel should also be in the conversation.  He's been the  
dominant morning show personality in Boston for well over a quarter  
century.  He'd be on my list.
