has fancy plans, and pants to match

You forget the part where Callahan's a terrible human being. He completely lacks empathy, like a Blade Runner replicant.
You're correct. I wouldn't want to go out to dinner with Gerry Callahan (I had forgotten about his library rant -- he sounded like Homer Simpson at his dumbest), but he has pretty decent takes on the day's sports. That's what I want to hear.
Much like athletes, as long as their personal opinions don't bleed into what they do, I couldn't care less what they do in their personal lives. I really don't.
Rebranding to 24/7 sports radio was about a year later, and I'm pretty sure Andy Moes was the original morning guy, as the lead guy with a few regulars.
I remember the year the Boggs left the Sox they used to have a segment each morning called "Wade Watch" where they would track Boggs' progress. I'm not sure why they had it or why it stuck with me*, but I thought that it was kind of funny.
* It had to be the intro to the segment which was some deep throated guy saying Wade Watch with the echo cranked up so it sounded like "Wadeeeeeeee Watchchchchch". I was 19-years-old.
