Morning....mornings are just not that good

WEEI....Kirk and Callahan....   grade = C.   Politics and more conservative politics with some sports. Good interviews. Dennis leaving the show improved it. I never would have thought that but Kirk works well with Callahan

Sports Hub....Toucher and Rich....C-    Completely off topic. A tad more funny. They sorta talk about nothing

Mid day

WEEI - Dale and Holley.  ...A- ...Pretty good. Holley clearly tries to be devil's advocate because Felger does that so well, but Holley does it pretty well too. Reasonably focused.

Sports hub...Felger and Mazz......B+.....Felger is a very good devil's advocate. Mazz drives me nuts. He just ruins it almost every time.  Sometimes you get lucky and Mazz finds a nut and they get a great show out of it.

Toucher and Rich is more entertainment than sports radio. In fact, I wish they spoke more sports.

I like Felger and Mazz, but think their best shows are when they have had someone like Wiggy there to offer up resistance to the Felger "doom and gloom" narrative.

Can I change your title to "Grate the Boston sports radio shows"? 

That image is much more appealing to me.

I'd rate K and C zero if I could. They talk more about all sorts of crap that is not sports, are generally abrasive, and hold insufferable prick Kurt Schilling on some sort of pedestal just because he's a Republican. The only reason I'd ever tune into them is because they've cornered Tom Brady's radio appearances.

Toucher and Rich usually have extremely thoughtful interviews (especially with Ainge and Gorman), and generally have better talking points.

Conversely, I find WEEI midday ok, while Felger and Mazz are complete hacks. They know nothing about the sports and the leagues they insist to keep blabbering about, and Mazz will win the "most annoying radio voice" competition by a landslide.

I really like Rich Keefe and have been listening to Dale and Holley more since his addition.  Kirk and Callahan are entertaining but also hard to listen to some times.  I bounce around to both stations when I'm in the car.
