FILL for Angelo Cataldi when he is on vacation? I thought he was not well liked at WIP so to hear him with Al and Rhea sounds so strange in the morning.

To me Eskin is a lot better when he works alone.

Does Eskin even have his own show anymore? He used to dominate in that 3 PM slot, until Mike Missanelli came along on 97.5 (and the AM station before that, was it 950?). Then remember they teamed Eskin with Ike Reese? OMG, what a horrible experiment that was. Now, I have no idea who's even on in the afternoons on WIP. I love Missanelli. I wish he was still teamed with Jon Marks though, but I know Jon wanted and deserved his own show.

No eskin doesn't have his own show anymore which is why I couldn't listen anymore. He had his own show for years and then they pair with ike reese? Lol

Love em, or hate em, Howard knows his stuff. He has seem to calm down a bit with callers. He does not call them nit-wits anymore.

He was only rude to people who didn't know anything about sports. He was never rude to me when I called into his show

Eskin does a Sat. morning show on WIP and reports on the Eagles. He also fills in for some national CBS and ESPN radio broadcasts.

The goon in his old time slot on WIP is unlistenable.

Missanelli has really improved over the years. He is much better doing his show solo.

Why was he unlistenable in his old slot?

Probably referring to Anthony Gargano. - Couldn't pay me to listen to him.

Howard's son is Brett or "Spike"
