    Seems like there was some tension there near the end...I recall one time in which Howie answered the phone was "X, you're on with Howie and VB" and she interjected something to the extent of, "what am I, wallpaper?"

    Contrast to VB, in which Howie continued to talk about him and even tried to help him get a new gig a few years back, and Steve, in which there's a going away party.

    Interesting, considering that, of the three (Howie, VB, "Sandy"), "Sandy", i.e., Nancy, is easily the most rational and least egocentric of the three.

    Well she is and was as boring as listening to "wallpaper dry".

    Maybe a soft spoken NPR-like approach. She did do WMEX at noon for awhile, at noon before McPhee, til
    the Renegade guys took the station dark.

    A 2009 Herald promotional bit on Howie, with Sandy
    commenting on him.(A container of Maine's Allagash
    beer behind her, a gift to her from a listener, maybe
    with the brewery.)

    Some Minihane-related podcast came out yesterday, in which Steve discussed the situation a little bit. One gets the impression that he was bored with the job and wanted to do something more edgy. He also mentioned that he's still open to guest hosting, however he doesn't intend to work Christmas for $50/hour.

    I listened to the first couple of podcasts of the Minihane show...not really my cup of tea, but it often seems like Steve is the only thing stopping it from going off the rails.

    Steve said today that they're giving him a cut of the proceeds.

    I haven't heard Kim yet on WBZ. I question the authenticity of your claim, unless you can give a date when we can expect to hear her. But as of now, I have my doubts.
