MMMC(Spring 3100)The Institutes Of The Intellectually-Challenged

In case you're wondering as to WHY I'm using the Moniker "Spring 3100", it was once the Telephone # of NYPD Police HQ at 240 Centre Street. The building is still there but it's now a Luxury Condominium:

As for the Two Institutes Of The Intellectually Challenged, I'm not writing about a charity. I am writing about two radio stations in both Boston & New York City, as both are dedicated to such babble as Sports Radio is known for producing;

These Two "Institutes" are WEEI in Boston & WFAN, now located in Downtown Manhattan;

"Joey From The North End" has a voice on WEEI. "Jerome From Manhattan" has a voice on WFAN;

Mind-Numbing "Conversations" from Callers are on these two stations, whether from "Whiny Long Island North Shore Princesses" or Gas Pumpers on The Massachusetts Turnpike, all thinking they're smarter than their Team's General Manager(At least in Omar Minaya's Case, some callers might just be smarter, in fact smarter than a segment of Mets Ownership, especially in the case of JEFFY);

"Dennis & Callahan" on 'EEI, is often a case of controversy, especially when Gerry Callahan makes such comments about "Metco Gorillas", in relation to Black Youths in an Educational Program in Boston. This attracts the LCD in callers, many of whom have no idea what they're talking about. It is "Theatre Of The Absurd";

Then, on WFAN, there's this pompous blowhard known as Mike Francessa, most noted for his signature use of the phrase, "Bottom Line." Other lines are "Gee, I dunno, Dog"(From The Days of Christopher "Mad Dog" Russo, who sounded like he had marbles in his mouth, not to mention sounding quite-whiny);

Mind-Numbing Radio at its' WORST, where the WHINIEST Fans call these stations. Funny, when WEEI is in Syndicated Programming, much of the Boston Area calls WFAN. Even when 'EEI is in local programming, the Boston Area calls into "The Fan", whining about some deal made by Theo & The Trio or some Video made by Bill Belichick;

As for my Intellectual Stimulation, there is "Gregorian Chant" in Latin, or WQXR-FM, for Classical Music. I often fire up "iTunes" for Classical Music or "Celtic Punk Rock" by "The Dropkick Murphys";

Why "The Dropkick Murphys"? Why Not, as They sound better than a song, written by a Brooklyn Born & Raised Yankee Fan, played at Fenway Park in the Middle Of The 8th Inning, played at Shea Stadium in the 1980s at Mets Games, a song called "Sweet Caroline", a young lass who was with her Mom, Jacqueline and Brother John, at Games 3, 4, & 5 of The 1969 World Series on the 3rd Base Side of Shea Stadium, in a Field Level Box. The Dropkick Murphys Have an Irish Beat more akin to Boston anyway. "Sweet Caroline" was most-likely to have been imported to Boston from NY by John Henry, when he owned The FLA Marlins, whenever he was in NYC for Marlins-Mets;

I'm headed into The UES(Upper East Side) to finish filming my role as a Senior Doorman in a short flick called "Fallen", directed by Eldar Karprov & Produced by Ed Ryan;

Some people, Mike, THRIVE on those call-in sports stations. We have an ESPN channel here in Hartford. Me? I'll take news, weather and traffic anytime and then go to Sirius in the morning for Howard. At night, it's Sox or UCONN. Or nuttin'.

Peter?
Sports Radio is "Theater Of Absurdity" in the purest sense of meaning:

Don any of these callers have any real purpose in Life?
