Yesterday was a sad day for people who listen to the radio in Boston.
Yes, WBCN was no longer the rock haven it once was. It’s largely ceded that territory to WFNX. And yes, it aired the incredibly stupid/annoying Howard Stern and Toucher and Rich (who it will keep airing). But it still played better music than 99% of the crap radio stations in the nation. And the real tragedy is what it’s being replaced with. Sports talk radio. Because this challenger to WEEI will work, unlike multiple previous attempts to dethrone the station that basically invented sports talk.
