Shaf, I recommend TribLive radio. Ken Laird has really come into his own and the the format, IMO, is great.
Laird starts at 9 and Junker joins in around 10 and stays a couple hours... Stag, around noon (he has his own block from 1 to 2). They free format it, like the old Stan and Guy shows. You really don't know where the conversation will end up.
I'm amazed by how much these guy's know about local sport's and they can bring the self-deprecating/cap on each other humor (but since I'm old enough to be your dad don't hold me to that ). And, their knowledge isn't restricted to Pittsburgh. Elder Stag though, wow. The guy is an encyclopedia. Today he was talking about the Hornet's and how he was at the first game they played at the CA. He's also the funniest of the three though they all are witty.
There are no phone calls, the occasional e-mail, and good guest's.
