Apparently, the New Station is kicking the unshirted bejabbers out of the Old Station in the battle over the affection of guys in their cars who don't have satellite radio, and hate audiobooks, and don't believe in CD's etc. etc. This Blog'll leave it to brother Finn to parse the why's and wherefore's out of the numbers,but the one thing that This Blog has noticed almost from the start is that the New Station has gone out of its way to sound different, not merely in its approach to the material -- The Toucher and Rich nervous hospital in the morning being Exhibits A-L in this regard. -- but also in its simple sonic impression. It sounds like you're listening to a sports-talk radio station on CD. In other words, it sounds like everything else you're used to listening to in your car in the first place. That has to help.

“Still too early, but I share the concern. Would love to see the eventual second unit guys – Baby, Jeff Green, Arroyo, West and probably Kristic – get to play together. Rondo looks exhausted and it would be helpful if Doc could cut back his minutes. Also, I strongly suspect there were concerns that Perk was not the same player anymore.”
“Packer was serious about hoops. I knew it was a big game when Musberger/Nantz would call a game with Packer. He was old school so he took delight in fundamentals such as a pick/roll or boxing out a rebounder. I'm still a young kid, but I enjoyed his analysis.”
