    For something "completely different"..... I'd listen to WBOS (92.9) -- Beautiful music back then.....nice to study by...!!
    John H., not John X.! And the "other" jock at GTR was none other than Don Kelley, longtime PD at WMJX.

    And the 'CAS I'd bring back would be the folk-rock incarnation, with Rick Starr (who went on to much bigger things in management) and Lisa Karlin (who went on to WCOZ and then to New York), among others.

    I think I'd like to see an FM talker like WTKK back again. The static on the AM band is almost worse than some of the talk program hosts haha.

    RaccoonerMan,

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that only a very small percentage of the listening population has HD radio in their cars and/or at home. My point being that two posters to this thread have expressed a wish for 96.9 WTKK to return. And now I would like to be the third to do so.

    And, while I'm at it, since this is all a pipe dream anyway: Oldies 103.3 WODS; The Rock of Boston WBCN; WEEI on 590; WHDH on 850.

    Graham lost his Cumulus gig in Atlanta in mid-2016. Supposedly, he's working in DC but not in radio; not sure.

    But, yeah, Graham, Severin, McPhee; would love Jim and Margery but that ain't gonna happen. Andelman Brothers, Mel Robbins, Hank Morse on weekends....

    Hmmm, Howie Carr always wanted to be on FM......

    I stand corrected on "John H."!!
    Don Kelley (Donald John Richard Eugene Kelley...he used to spout this out on WHEB for the short time he was there with Bob Sinnet....just long enough to fire the whole on-air staff - including ME! - before heading to "greener pastures"....!

    On an FM in Boston (Howie), yes, though he has been on FMs like WXTK on the Cape and some various FM stations and translators (like in Portland ME and Manchester NH in latter category).
    On Patriots Day of 2013 when the marathon bombings happened, WEEI 93.7 simulcast parts of Howie's show.

    Ah that's right about Graham and E&B are on FM radio on WGBH

    WCRB 102.5 FM. Dave Tucker, Dave MacNeill, Table at Pops (informally remembered as Table at Scratches and Pops). Spotlight on Latvia ("A land and people by the Baltic Sea...striving to be free!"). WCRB Saturday Night with Richard L. Kaye. The Boston Symphony with William Pierce ("Welcome to another broadcast concert, part of the one million, four hundred seventy eight thousand, five hundred sixty seventh season of the Boston Symphony Awchestra, Seiji Ozawa, Music Director...").

    My days of listening to Mr. Pierce and the BSO predate Ozawa......Eric Liensdorf was conductor...I used to WATCH on channel 2 and LISTEN to the (stereo) simulcast on WGBH-FM 89.7.....
    Gone....but certainly NOT forgotten!!!
