Oh, I don't know. Mike Mconnell is pretty entertaining and I like Willie just for shear bombastic sillyness. I don't take him very serriously, but he's fun.
I loved Burbank growing up. I remember him in the mornings and would listen as much as possible in the afternoons after he switched. He was very funny and entertaining until about late highschool (89-90ish). Then I lost intrest. I've tried to listen a few times over the past few years, but his stuff is just horrible now. Not bad, or that he lacks tallent, just not fresh and it sounds very tired. He's been going through the motions for a long, long time, IMO.
But he's always seemed like a very nice man. And his stuff from the early days was classic. My father and I still quote lines from shows we heard in 1985.
It will be interesting to see with whom WLW replaces him.
