Thanks to Donna for this opportunity!  Here's what I submitted:

What would you like to see on wbz1030.com that is not currently provided?

Not enough space here to crack the surface. Appalled at your dereliction 
of duty by dismantling a once great heritage Spirit of New England. Not 
since the failed Tom Snyder experiment has WBZ gone so low. Bring back 
local talk now. There are enough reasons not to listen to traditional 
radio. The very reasons I still listen to WBZ are evaporating. The very 
hype you present in the outset of this email shows that you have either 
drunk the Kool-Aid from CBS or you have another sweet gig in the works. 
Wake up.

How can we make WBZ better for you?

Bring back the WBZ I grew up with. The best of times were with Maynard, 
Glick, Raleigh, Bruds, LaVall., Diett. If I want a Flo-bee infomercial 
I'll listen elsewhere on the dial. Your changes are an abomination, a 
true disaster.

What word or phrase best describes WBZ?

The Former Spirit of New England
Dispirit of New England
Doubtable BZ
CBS 1030
Another Reason to go Satellite Radio
