Tolkoff out at FNX

Thanks to a tipster....

Max Tolkoff resigned from WFNX today to take over as PD at Indie 103 in L.A. Tolkoff had been commuting to Boston from L.A. and is very happy to have a job close to home. APD Keith Dakin is being promoted to PD and will likely give up his 3-7pm shift. It seems that much of this had been angled behind the scenes for a few weeks as FNX just hired Chris Centore to join an already too crowded field of FNX part time jocks. Centore worked with Dakin at WHOB and in Virginia. The buzz at FNX is Centore will get the 3-7 shift, a move that will cause an uproar among the part timers who have been waiting for years for a job to open. FNX is known for hiring from within, but to say Centore is "from within" is a stretch and looks more like he's been brought in as a ringer. Several of Centore's ex co workers find his hiring (in the midst of a "hiring freeze") "curious".

Curious indeed!

Curiouser and Curiouser!

XM/Sirius predictions?

The always insightful Mark Ramsey has listed some quick predictions about the XM/Sirius merger.


XM/Sirius Merger Announcement: 14 Knee-Jerk Predictions


My own knee-jerk reaction is that people are falling into two camps. There are people who are Satellite radio detractors and there are the supporters. The supporters can list all the reason why this merger should and will work. The naysayers will tell you that this is giving too much power to once company, and that local radio service will suffer.

What are your thoughts?

Pirates, Pirates Pirates....everywhere!



I hate to give radio pirates any more publicity, however, it seems to be becoming more and more of an issue.

More stations are going up, with relative impunity.

They proudly have web sites, and publicize themselves in newspaper articles.

Someone has taken the time to list the pirate stations operating in the Boston area.


Take a look....

Rhode Island feels the void....



While much of New Hampshire is enjoying the new 99.5 signal of WCRB. Much of Rhode Island is missing the Classical music that could once pick up on 102.5.
