As we were leaving Earthfest, an esplanade concert sponsored by WBOS, I met a young intern from rival station WFNX. He was handing out cards for his station.
Aren't you in enemy territory? I asked.
He said yes, but was there to tell people that FNX was better. I like FNX and said so. I also grinned, called him "sonny", and waxed nostalgic about the early '80's, when WFNX was "The New Music Source".
"We still are" he said.
I reminded him that WBOS had just given us a great concert. He agreed, but said that BOS wasn't a real local station like FNX was.
"They have robots. We have live DJ's. They stole our playlist."
Fine, but, driving to work a couple of Fridays ago, I listened to 92.9 playing FNX music, while on FNX the DJ's were having a call-in as to whether Michael Jackson was going to heaven or hell.
My guess would be heaven, but who the hell are they to pose such questions?
