In response to mbeaulieu07's comment:
My initial thought upon seeing this list was... I wish we had more Boomer in this market... really enjoy listening to him when he's on Dennis and Callahan.
- Gresh and Zo are my favorite duo in this market.
- I can only handle Felger and Mazz in small doses.
- Michael Holley is probably the most likable radio personality in this market, knows his stuff too.
- Toucher and Rich, while funny (well, Toucher is funny) and entertaining, don't know sports very well.
Agreed across the board minus Felger and Mazz. I can't even do small doses with them. Barring me not quickly shutting down Gresh and Zo in time, I have no voluntarily listened to them in 2 years (when they attacked Kraft braggin about how great the Jets were and calling Kraft cheap in October of 2011) unless I want to confirm their agenda at the start of the show. Once I get the confirmation, that's all I need.
Boomer is a strightshooter and a very good analyst. Agree on Holley, but I think he's been compromised by Salk, who is terrible.
I listened to Tottcher and Rich once and never heard them talk about sports at all. Sounded like a gossip club of some TMZ show or something. Very strange.
Gresh and Zo, at least for Pats fans, is clearly the best show in town. It's solid for the B's too.
Mike Flynn on Saturdays is good too.
Yeah, I was gonna mention Johnston and Flynn as a likable weekend show... also like when they fill in for Toucher and Rich. Good call there.
I also think Minihane is a love/hate type of personality... I tend to like him, but I can see why some would hate him.
