That's what we'll have the I just have one thing that's I've been way to say this all year to see guys and Arizona. Greg Murphy earlier call earlier voice of Tito Francona on the wireline. Got at least three guys -- was one of them had no clue as he was on the phone line. UN Tito Pedroia was aghast and Pedroia just went along like he thought he was the body into local planners and this -- -- every day with a manager playing little card -- didn't write a scrimmage carpet so he's listening to him. Every day tone of his voice. And Murphy had going for about six minutes. -- had no -- Got Lou. Got she'll. Who wants to get somebody else -- He's got more that was. And down. -- one there might have been more as we kept on doing you don't want it. If ever we yeah we don't don't drive cars that we're here and would never -- It. But he figured out that was Greg Murphy stuff was was tremendous I feel more focused you're gonna get to the final. Casket out. -- -- Greg Greg and Apollo program. -- -- Let the press I gotta tell you that this has been a lot of fun to look into the afternoon. It it's the perfect -- you -- go out. It's been awesome did to listen to. I get technical and they iPad it looked and indeed to the big show in 99 it was there in the Red Sox playoff. It was actually did that day after that the phantom tag by chuck Knoblauch's. And I was so angry -- about the game and an end because we didn't get a lot from you know seeing it on TV in the games -- don't like 2 in the morning and I get in the car the next step -- and I had that just. Find people who who were angry and as frustrated that I wasn't and it was scanning that dial and I thought you guys. And and and it was just click the public group therapy and it'd make me really really feel good that there are other people out there that that felt like me. And I can say -- the last time that the big so it may -- feel good. It was it it's been great to -- years and it it really has been -- like group therapy in India and all of us the chance to act event in. And and to listen to other people banned in to did not -- frustrations in and celebrations that have been helped by others and you've got a great job and it's -- it's just been a lot of fun to be apart. Greg I really appreciate it thank you go to Don Johnson caught I Don. Hey Glenn I don't. And a bit of scandal that they're from back before you let Johnny most employers -- as a Howell. I did not set him up on fire trying to clear that one out of 4 to 6 o'clock here. He let himself on fire but I put the fire. You I got up one point 805 wild and out for about an hour YouTube LPQ a lot of little commute like that was. You know your your calendar obviously and on the show at all it's been oppressed but I think one of the things they're really impressed me the most was the week you. Conduct yourself in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 it. You know your job obviously entertainment talk about sports which you have instincts to know that to you so. That would have been disrespectful just given how trivial sports news in the wake of something like that what you get for all about a minute left I -- group therapy it. He really did help me and I think a lot of folks got to come to terms is that we cope with that tragedy just by. Providing form talk about it that -- about it. That really always impressed you know stuck with me in and I just want to thank you. I'll tell you want to thank you very much -- I will tell -- story about the 9/11 because it was. Just the most have a devastating thing that I've ever experienced in my life I remember my -- tell me about Pearl Harbor day. Thought I'd never ever ever in my life experience today like that net -- the whole 9/11 and it happens to wall of the spot. Com. -- a lot of emotions over the days after that and there was a lot of confusion. And I don't know if you remember this Michael bought. Sports Illustrated. Actually wrote a piece about how sports talk radio handled I remember it well and they quote remember they quoted me they called me blow heart and everything else which is the mobile arm again but he's got actually on the other quote -- -- -- -- exports three sports now but that's Ivan the damage to damaging -- at -- quote was that. I guess I get to meet -- -- -- -- -- -- -- They accused me of going on the air and saying that we should do is go over there and his blow up old Arab world and turn it into -- An episode. Of set it on the radio but you know what he was in Sports Illustrated in the mail that I got. The threats that I was dealing with during that period of time it was frightening I had to hire lawyers. I had to eventually soon Sports Illustrated because I had to stop it it was our right you did so it was them Michael I I. I was afraid it was the -- and Sports Illustrated I was afraid it was going to destroy my career. Because you know the country was in this you know crazy period and I thought I had done a fairly responsible job in the coverage of all of that. And that was thrown out there and then it turns out. That recent Sports Illustrated as you probably know you know upbeat Sports Illustrated -- getting a look at from a and one -- And at a point in the correct the correction threat but they are really reluctant throw that throw -- corrections. Soul we have my team of lawyers had spent some time trying to put all of this evidence tapes and everything else together and finally about I want assay. Oh month and a half later something like that they finally put a correction and I'm telling you. That I can put this magazine in front -- you like -- eight hours. You can -- -- find my direct action and you couldn't find -- can't -- -- I remember. I remember where was when you were talking about it. Like a lot of people you remember all all sorts of things you remember where you where you're hearing things on radio -- to being -- In traffic many times 128 listening to whiner line war. If if I had to give -- that get in the car at a certain time I'd make shores well. I'll just take this trip around 535 little more diligent -- that. -- -- out a tick is mr. brown 535540s. -- -- the line -- line in if you went over you stay in the car and listen but I remember. Sitting in the car thinking they get this so wrong because I listened to sell pretty religiously. And never say anything about how did they ever explain. What was the problem somebody was a monitor here so what -- -- was a local person that was monitoring it that claimed that he. Well somebody trying to trying to make a name for themselves and so I got something juicy here this is what was set on Boston Sports Radio. And I get I department I mean it was very it was that person's still working in the New England media in there. The person -- conviction. Yes. And you pick them lawyer of this radio thing doesn't work when -- completed. -- total loss to vote. I -- you should get a look good right now that I assume you're not addressed separately that address about your day to day. Listen I I'm so happy that I'm get used this opportunity and I thanked the company for allowing me -- Allowing me to have three days here which it says goodbye not happy about. All of this stuff but I'm at least. Respectful of the fact that they've given these three days to be able to do is usually they don't do. And the reason they don't do. I'm not sure the gonna do -- but they the reason they don't do it is because they're fearful that somebody's gonna come back on the air and just you know -- -- out. Crap all over you know and then let's. I have great respect for for the people who his business and and even the people on the company shell I am I can do that -- that allowed me to say goodbye to everybody. And I'm telling all of these people it's not good -- I'm just going to the next captain what you come along where ever -- go and that's why. And giving you my you know my Twitter handle that Glenn. So I watch it come a long way but this one person I just want to say good -- to to look at. Steve -- for. You mean I can't come to the next level. Steve Steve Steve I gotta tell you I've got so much out of this relationship over the last few years with -- I really believe that it's time for us to. I really but I -- up all the memories Steve I got the memories and the memories will always be with. But don't you wanna know liking privately tell you -- -- it's literally how I could have been so right. About your beloved patriots come -- wouldn't back in the day. The key to an audience that's so football ever came to an end and I told it was an -- attack. I told you before that perhaps it couldn't you -- a trip plaque you shall order that we use clean that. I told you back in the day was although polls all 1001. To 2004. Steve you need therapy and -- needs therapy and I think I can help you want because we have this thing will weaken conference the two of you together. And instead of calling all the talk shows all over the city maybe you want to go to conference that to have you together and every time you're just feeling a little that. Little you can just pick up you little red phone it's -- Dakota aren't feeling low -- -- took off one of the -- nervous about the celebrity call attacked in the focus groups and sent it in negative thing. I don't I don't wanna you know let's talk about getting blamed for you. I'm blaming you know yes that's what they're talking about I read the focus groups every single one of them Steve from former perceived forwards Dave Allred. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We. You're enjoying your day. Hey everything's going -- -- -- -- -- -- Okay. There was this. I'm gonna miss so many people I gotta tell -- they're so pretty people I don't have the time to go through the entire list of all the people. An anonymous -- -- now Selig you compare him to Dakota that's an insult to decode decode decode a couple days ago. Gave a very. Profile around coherent analysis. He was great -- that picture show in of the business on today but he great it was -- -- straight. -- from Fall River. Not able to deliver I think. He thinks he thinks he's like he thinks he's the smartest person in New England football except that. He's got eight plus. Let's football knowledge and we're not up to stay and he's projected level he's been predicting the patriots demise for twelve years I've seen the aussies in the I've seen that too much. Here's the problem for me go forward because I'll probably be listening to more. Sports talk radio for a few more hours on one hand it's pretty quickly here. And he'll pop up like everywhere like bad rash but if you have a bad rash you can kind of puts solve some medication goes away. Stay from for purchase never girls -- block. Block of I don't that's done. Like a restraining order up more. Watching God's what there. This is -- the final -- line it's coming up. They're glad it's Paula proper role of public respect of the other day that I'm most thankful confidently -- in my career at the first one. I was I got back up and I -- what the federal. Bobby you Republican secure fit I was so excited I'm not because I -- -- But that's the point number two when -- -- the first.

Glad thanks again best of luck when you needed a little arguably maybe it will preserve written personal -- left and it served me well. -- used to -- -- another way what problem with good luck it doesn't.

He was here while we put this stuff together -- -- -- -- got stuff like that nobody else has ever done nobody else has ever done to pick up the phone maybe ask a couple of questions but even that now.

Years ago and asked the question as opposed to standing from afar a thousand yards away. And sit there and just looking at us and coming to your own conclusions. So it started as a complaint line we started putting it on the air and as time went on. People said this is a great vehicle for me is people are are are that run.

You're the ultimate point guard the ultimate quarterback you know what everybody's strengths is. And you can bring the best out everybody and no matter what the converse it's -- matter how serious topic is. With the wider line at the end of the day you always knew you gonna have a laugh even some things that people were afraid to laugh about. It is made the conversation more accessible. And it really brought in the conversation. Because it brought a lot of perspectives into it but this is one thing -- I have no idea. What does with this new show was gonna become in what is gonna evolve into I can promise you. Can promise you that. I will. Protect. And advance. Your legacy your legacy is not only that slot.

Hard worker and he went on your feet I wish you well Linda we'll see them want. Now we'll say this the success of the one -- line is due mainly to an emotional -- he is a master. That not only being able to take in all of those are calls but to be able to. Actually edit them and make them make sense. In a little ten or fifteen minutes segment and and -- I will always cherish what you've done. For what has become kind of a benchmark. For me in my program. They go I've known you for one year two months intend is not an -- and or anything like prisons that is illegal and warned me about yourself. Bodily but we're orbits ago legacy I've worked this Madison don't hire now -- a -- away. But you're the reason I got into radio I used to go home after class play man.

To come in and producers show and I'm eternally thankful for everything you've done for me and -- see you again -- You receive some time congress created are going to be Alaska to talk a lot -- record will never be broken law says something about you never you've always been a a wonderful friend and I want to set the record straight. There was a time when used to this all of a soft because you were late on a regular basis and you tell the truth went over the last eight years with the exception of one night. -- one night. I don't know whether you're visiting your car wash your car filthy at the time traffic view as straighten out Iraq and I'm really proud and really dominant view and a wonderful spring talent there's nobody that -- -- -- -- Mike Adams I think Mario my time to Syria provide everybody in and I say the same team the oval that I said do you the other day last year. Which you've been able to do to help Michael Lionel. I'll never forget. It's been an unbelievable ride from now on the occupier Sean -- to write a a nice the script for me here but we'd be here to globally fifty. I could hire Jack Edwards put it probably would be really mean. Why when analog out so I figured I would just do get a higher Shaughnessy in the bigger -- management ever. There were people -- -- Just to put off the cuff because that's how I always. It's been an unbelievable right -- been here since 1986. For the Boston Celtics I'd love doing that job was as much fun as I think anybody. Who grew up in this town was abroad wanted to be a broadcaster. You couldn't ask for more I got the opportunity to work with the was two years. And work around Red Sox broadcaster as well but the last eighteen years. And being able to put together not only the shell. But the part of the start of something very very significant in this market across the country. I spoke with -- -- so for me there was no heavy lifting it was a blast akin to work everyday and I absolutely loved what I was doing. I wish I could have done for more hours and I do apologize for those vacations I took it. Did wanna spend some time with my family. I'll say this that I have the utmost respect for a lot of people of this radio station I know many of them now taking a beating out there. Everybody's time comes and goes and there -- a period in which you can excel at something. But it doesn't mean that you're done you're washed up where you -- over means that the marketplace. Is changing so you have to change the marketplace. And that's exactly what's going on here to John and Jerry. That show was. Short radio goal for the longest period of time and hopefully we'll continue to do selling of ultimate respectable to those guys. A wonderful broadcaster. I think Gail for everything he did as I said the other day from day -- the day one. Without deal I'm not sure we could have done a lot of the stuff. And Lou it been guys that we've got to work with more recently and we can see what great guys in and worked great talent they -- I also want to thank him completely. Always been a guy that. I tell you what it. Well he's the type again I want to give you one quick funny story to kind of break it up we -- a dinner with that Terry Francona one night. Michael my animals role. We have the food out and we have the wind going and Tito was only rule and Tito was telling a stuffed and I just. We could have written some good. Prologue to what we -- of rhetoric seriously it was a problem of us have to stuff are written the book I learned that night we could have written three books with Terry Francona got to put Francona and told him the most off color jokes at the time that was only are unbelievable. And players were calling him at the time that night while we were there but the best was when we asked I forget who asked a question about. Managing Michael Jordan he starts telling his -- -- and George's stories Phnom. And won't -- -- who we love you because there's nobody better in the business of getting us on the air and getting a -- here. Decided he was gonna interrupt -- went to was -- Michael Jordan story. Because Jordan at one time. Jumped over his equipment and almost killed himself. At the old Chicago stadium trying to save a ball from going up and we wanted to -- -- -- you're number wanted to corner and bunkers and the Michael Jordan stories stopped but I love them dearly and I love these guys the producers. The engineer and -- I want to thank all of them as well. And of course every single one of the co -- many of you and you heard here today. Are you guys made the -- I could not have done it by myself I keep reading that if it were just me. -- that showed trust me you wouldn't sit decent here today saying all these nice things you're saying about. Wouldn't how. I want to -- Jason wolf I don't think it's taken a beating out there. I do not believe that this is Jason -- decision. But Jason wolf. Was the one who came and told me the other night on Tuesday night that they were moving on and I was done and Jason -- did that. Because he got. Yeah understood me. He knew how I would react and he knew everything was going to be okay. I've not heard from a lot of other management people and to me that's extremely disappointed. Lot of -- awards have been -- at this place. Lot of money has been made for a lot of people. We have had an unbelievable ride with great success. For that I am slightly disappointed but once again I understand. It is a business and we're all going to move more. The other thing I want us as a thank all of the people out there who have a call and text. You would not believe you heard one of the owners here today one of the coaches. I've heard from a lot of coaches how to -- is a lot of owners in this town. This is what makes Boston so great. These guys yet again. These are guys that probably would never want me to tell you what they said to be on the phone because I beat the crap out of them at times over the last eighteen years together. They understand the emotional attachment to his sports fans out. -- our Boston sports teams and I'm telling you. Guys out here that's what makes this the greatest sportsmen and America I had an opportunity before us and this latest contract to do when national did. But turned it down. Because I loved -- him and I probably will end up staying in the stone because. I needed it's that juice that you get every day with the emotional attachment to these teams it's been one of the greatest strides. -- Boston sports history would've all been part of and finally to you out there I think every one of you I hope you understood. In the last few days I think many of you did some of you obviously thought it was crude rude. Arrogant. Now maybe I -- what it was part of what we were doing here as a shell I didn't mean to hurt anybody out there. And the one thing I will never forget -- when my family was in trouble. You were old they're from. And for that I would never ever forget. So thanks everybody Michael good luck to you know move it forward. You got all catch me around the corner someplace so I'll keep the Dutch thanks to burger I do have my Twitter account available at some free time they've been bitching about me now for the last year about how it into.
