WWZN AM 1510 – Progressive Talk Returns To Boston

radio_microphone_hg_whtDecember 21, 2006, a day that will live in infamy in Boston, MA. On that day some two and a half years ago, Air America ceased broadcasting in Beantown and so vanished all progressive talk radio in one of the most politically progressive cities in the nation. How could that possibly happen in the Cradle of Liberty? How could a state that elects only Democrats to the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives and also hosts a Democratic Party Governor, not have a platform for progressive talk radio? How could the airwaves be bereft of liberal talk in the only state that voted against Nixon in’72 (remember those great bumper stickers: “Don’t Blame Me, I Voted For McGovern)? Well, it did happen.

From that date through May 17, 2009 there has only been conservative, right-wing hate radio in the “Home of the Cod.” One such station, affectionately referred to by us Lefties as “WKKK”, boasts a lineup of such local gasbags as Michael Graham (of the Boston Herald) and Michele McPhee (formerly of the Boston Herald). If you really want a taste of that station’s most racist, hate-filled programming, however, you must listen to a sociopath named Jay Severin III ( real name: James Severino). I believe he dropped the ethnic sounding surname because it clashed so violently with his anti-immigration stance. This guy is presently under suspension from the station because of some truly racist and hateful dialogue that he spouted on-air two weeks ago. To learn more about Severin, please Google recent national news stories about him. You will be shocked. In fact, if you want to hear a little from him, please listen to the link below.

Boston’s only other talk radio station of late boasted a lineup of such national buffoons as Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage (real name: Michael Weiner, hmm, wonder why he changed that name?). The local hosts include Howie Carr (of, you guessed it, the Boston Herald) and the station’s only Democrat, former Massachusetts Speaker of the House and might I add, convicted felon (obstruction of justice) and disbarred attorney, Thomas J. Finneran. The station’s choice of Finneran as the lone voice of the Democratic Party is even more disingenuous than Fox News pairing Hannity with the milquetoast Alan Colmes.

But a new day has dawned. On may 17, 2009 Revolution Boston has sprung on the scene at WWZN AM 1510. The present lineup includes Boston’s own Jeff Santos, Stephanie Miller, Ed Schultz and Thom Hartmann. This will certainly make drive time much more enjoyable and consequently reduce the amount of Road Rage city-wide.

Massachusetts Trivia Question of the Day: Who was the last Republican Governor to serve two full terms?

Answer: None. Since its establishment in 1620, no Republican Governor has ever served two full terms in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Oh, what the heck, let’s sing another Palin song. This time with a revolution theme in honor of Revolution Boston radio…

(sung to the Beatles song “Revolution”)

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to lose the girl
You tell her about evolution
Well, you know
She won’t give that thought a whirl
But she knows about reproduction
She and her daughter can spit ‘em out
Pretty soon we will be free, all right
All right, all right.

You say we need a real solution
Well, you know
Sarah’s days are nearly done
She’s lookin’ for some contributions
As you know
For her Legal Defense Fund
But when you want money
To spread politics of hate
Sarah’s giving us reason to investigate
Don’t you know it’s gonna be all right
All right, all right

She may want to change the Constitution
Well, you know
Her chances there are pretty nil
And her position on the air’s pollution
Well, you know
Even more questionable still
And if she keeps pandering to all the Joe Sixpacks
She’ll never earn most of the population’s votes back
So, don’t you see it’s gonna be all right
All right, allright
All right, all right, all right
All right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right, all right,

  1. WWZN ~ AM 1510 ~ Has an EXCELLENT Progressive line up!

  2. Let’s just hope that it sticks around for awhile.

  3. “Let’s just hope that it sticks around for awhile.”

    Yes Indeed, Last time I checked I didn’t see any mention on their web site. I haven’t see any promotion … and that’s not good. An audio stream would hurt either cuz of their signal and I assume many progressive fans have condition themselves to streaming for years.
    A sponsors list on site is crucial to insure longevity of Progressive talk in the area !
