When WEAE-AM (1250) retooled their programming, they ended up taking a different direction. Reviews for the now 3-week old Paulsen & Crow show have been unfavorable and is being called a “culture shock” for listeners who were used to the rough and tumble sounds of Mark Madden. Bob Smizik wonders if and when Madden should show up on WXDX-FM (105.9) if there won’t be a “mass exodus” from 1250. WEAE general manager Mike Thompson considers the program a work in progress.
Meanwhile, Stan & Guy’s program has been a refreshing reunion for listeners. The pair used to host Sportsbeat together and were well liked.
Neither program is taking very many calls in comparision to the previous programs. Station management made the decision saying that talk shows shouldn’t rely on callers to carry the program.
