Yes, It Is Hot

Two unrelated subjects:

Greg Maddux is off to more fame, fortune and glory as an ex-Cub for the second time in his career and how sad is that? One of the top pitchers of all time spends two terms with the Cubs and all he’ll be remembered for are his great seasons with the Braves and, most likely, the Dodgers now. Even a four game sweep of the Cardinals can’t wash that bad taste out of my mouth.

But then there’s Rover, the tremendously unfunny morning man at WCKG, who is also out after eight months as Howard Stern’s replacement. Like David Lee Roth, the Stern Replacements were doomed to fail, in fact, were set up to fail, and so this is no surprise. But Opie and Anthony are next in line, and all I can say is, hot damn, I miss Stern and his gang. And I’ll use this space to recommend the only station worth listening to in Chicago: WLUW (88.7)

    I wish I could get WLUW for my entire commute… but I’m an NPR junkie, so I make do with BEZ… thank god Mancrap is finally gone! It will be interesting to see what Q101 comes up with in the fall.

    Makes sense that Maddux is gone, might as well get something for him.

    As for Rover…I’m surprised he lasted as long as he did. Funny thing too…I just saw a commercial where he takes a baseball bat to a little porcelain cow. And days later, he’s gone as well.

    And you mentioned longing for Stern. You’re not missing much these days…with all those commercials gone, he’s forced to fill the gap with more show….and it’s gotten a bit boring…

    Stern never should have left radio for satellite. What was he thinking? Oh yeah, $$$

    The only radio worth listening to in Chicago is 88.7 WLUW. All the commercail FM radio stations suck. Same with most on the AM too.
