Bleedred said:This. Pete Shepard is delusional if he thinks Entercom was going to have him sit down with the boss of his boss to discuss on air content. It's comical to even think that Shepard expected this to happen. IMO he was never any good, and he's a rank amateur for pulling a stunt like this. Kudos to him if he doesn't care, but if he thinks he's going to be working at another reputable media stop anytime soon, then he's even more delusional than I think.

Rusty13 said:Link of Pete BURYING EEI on his first show on 1510. He even whips out "gutless turds". Pretty damn entertaining.

I remember calling in to the Old Morgan E. White trivia shows that were on at like 2am on that station in he very early 80s (man I am old, but at least I was only like 14 then)
I agree. IMO, that "rant" was not funny, clever, insightful, poignant or even remotely entertaining. I too shut it off after about 3:30, as it was the same drivel that Pete has peddled his entire career. To me, the guy has never offered anything interesting when I've listened to him, and his preposterous indignation about the heads of WEEI not having the "guts" to sit down with him is embarrassing.John Marzano Olympic Hero said:I don't know. I listened to the first five minutes and it sounded like the ramblings of an insane person or someone with a very high opinion of himself. After awhile I shut it off, did it get better?

No "E". Just Morgan White Junior. And he's on WBZ on Sunday night overnights. And I think the station he was on back then was 1600, it wasn't 1510, which also was WITS for awhile and had the Red Sox games.
This.John Marzano Olympic Hero said:I like Pete Sheppard. I liked the passion that he brings to the shows he is on, it's clear that he genuinely loves sports. But man, he doesn't understand shit about the business world. Like at all.
GM Jeff Brown according to this. Unfortunately Pete doesn't have the self-awareness to realize that the reason he didn't have a full time gig there wasn't because Brown was a big meany. That being said, when I used to listen to the Big Show before I gave up on EEI I enjoyed the show more when Ordway was on vacation and Pete filled in as host.CoffeeNerdness said:What a bitter loser. Who is this exec he's droning on about?
The tv thing, over in Brighton? I was at one of those. The guy who did Ren and Stimpy was one of the celebs, IIRCBigMike said:
You are correct I think it was 1600. I do think Cliff and Claff (or maybe just one of them) were 1510. I once participated filming a pilot for a trivia game show he was pitching in summer of 83 maybe. Morgan was the guy who got me a bleacher seat for Yaz last game.
In terms of Shepard, I guess it would be a good thing for this NBC sports to work out, and more competition in the town; although that basically gives us 4 sports stations now.
Sheppard said he has had a mutual parting of the ways with 1510, the station he joined not long after abruptly quitting his WEEI weekend program while on the air in April.
He said he has a better opportunity coming along that he plans to announce later in the week.
Zook's status is uncertain, as is whether WUFC 1510 will continue to air local programming in the afternoon time slot.
General manager Anthony Pepe did not respond to a request for comment.

Sure, they broadcast from the building where Cappy's Copper Kettle is... And as soon as you go by the Washington Savings and New Great Taste across the street the signal starts to cut out...Haunted said:Yeah, I've lived in and around Lowell for 15 years and didn't know 980 existed.
Seems like a bad career move.
