Sports talk IS boring.
To YOU, but to others, it's not.
While Boston radio has fallen into bland territory, it's not the end of the world. There are other small market stations in the area that fill the need for the average listener. I, personally like NPR, 92.5 The River, 95.9 WATD, and North Shore 104.9 (occasionally 95.3 WHRB and 91.9 'UMB). Do I miss WFNX? Sure, but unfortunately this is a business and it's the nature of the beat.
When I was younger, I used to like the old B106 (WHOB) Nashua. It was a Triple-A/MOR type of station that played some of the best music and it had a down home feel to it. But what I looked forward too was the Syndicated shows like "Rock Over London" with Paul Sexton. Then it was cancelled and turned into Hot AC. Now it's Classic Hits with a Classic Rock format. Things change and it is a business. Fortunately with the innertoobz, you can still hear WBCN and WFNX online.
