    I'm honestly not trying to troll anyone, but what is it people find entertaining or endearing about this guy? I don't get it.

    The fact he thinks he’s a god and national treasure makes his voice on air intriguing. I love hearing his opinions (which he believes are 100% gospel). Especially with big events like the OBJ meltdowns or NY teams failures.

    I’ll say to myself, “can’t wait to hear what FATCESSA says tomorrow”

    He knows how to draw a crowd. I can only handle him for short periods of time (opening monologue for example). Not hours on end.

    I’m the same way, I can only take bits and pieces of him. I listened to his opening yesterday just to see what he was going to say about his return, switched back to espn about 15 minutes later

    Yeah, openings are usually great. The other stuff (bashing callers, jerking off the Yankees, get tiring).

    Same goes for the other radio guys. First 10 minutes are usually good, then it gets dull.
    His interview with Eli was good too.

    I like Kay’s show because there’s a lot of banter included, that’s why I loved Carton. Boomers show isn’t the same anymore

    It ain’t any better down here near Philly. Most radio shows are garbage. I’ll listen in when Philly teams tank though. Had a lot of years of enjoyment when the Eagles sucked, sadly that’s over now.

    His show has the most unintentional comedy of anything I've ever listened to. Also over the years the prank callers have gotten so nuanced and they play him like a puppet to get their punchlines out.

    Listened as much as I could yesterday which was the opening, and then bits and pieces the rest of the day until I left the office. Im back to my regular routine now, when he comes on I turn it off, unless I know he will have Pierre Maguire or Joe Micheletti on which we know wont happen since the Rangers are not playing. Its been a nice April not having to listen to him to wait to transcribe an interview.

    The Michael Kay Show is awesome. I can’t even stand the sound of Francesca’s voice.

    The kind of sycophant blow-hard listeners he attracts I'm not sure I want to listen anymore. He was better as a duo earlier in his career until his ego increasingly swallowed the microphone. Can't listen to him anymore.

    bingo!

    I like his voice even less than the recorded sound of my own (which sometimes has to happen in recorded interviews) I hate it, and that's saying somethine.

    No shit. How do they let a woman with the most annoying voice I've ever heard, on the radio. She makes Susan Waldman sound like Pavarotti!
