And this go around this banks have bow out now. And this message it. Also one of our regional wireline calls when it was completely -- Why can't I get the ball these football game. Months WE. -- -- around with a pair. Another misnomer that's industry that we stole it from -- cars -- and we did not always cars -- import was much different. Then start one line. I became program director I was walking out one night receptionists and you can do about to complete. Its -- and people really -- we have switched over. At the time from the sports format to this new format with multiple Holston. A younger sound a lot more production to it and people were -- as always change. So I said we talk and so she's the number and -- you get into the thing. And you know you got to clear him off because people calling me now -- the entry forms one raft of people just like so. I'm going home and got myself unless this thing. And I'm listening and all she read it to you. -- you assault is killing a cat and a but they were funny. They were so they were funny and -- Steve Nelson is. It exactly so should.

You know again whoever wrote that to quote the great Steve yeah see that's line which is its paints an ever reached the heights of the one just. Here's -- thing at 101000 people filled the garden to watch a stupid message machine. Missed that you don't like it's repeated over and over and over again why. Nobody ever asked -- -- to -- to his credit John Tomas is the one guy in this town innocent people and not crazy bottom of the tape he's the one guy and in that. Actually asked. A lot of excellent specific questions years ago -- he did about what we were doing and radio and it wasn't all positive his patience and negative stuff and and get the right obviously he has his opinions to. But at least he asked questions and at least she knew where -- what -- the the Genesis right exactly. Actually spent I think three days on the station he Bashir for moving three days of research. 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. They don't even do that anymore. So for those people that are making mistakes continuously. And talking about us. What you had to do was picked up the phone. 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. That's what people started to become very creative and in the comedians and everybody else and now. Music involved -- -- -- that are. I'm not bitter and you know I'm not. Bitter and I just. It's honestly it kinda current directory and try to correct the record -- Well that it -- -- in a yeah I have -- move on -- other content editor of the immediate credibility. I thought at all.

And I got here working with dale true professional classy. Smoot. And the opportunity to to work with you was amazing I really found myself as a fan of every situation because. You you wanna sit back him if you're working with about right. They tell you what you have a deadline -- not think about that you think about publicly Barbara I hope to listen that they don't wanna listen to. To grant award way and so is truly been an honor and a blessing. Not to work with you have learned a lot from New York watched you -- what you would you didn't even know I was -- paying attention taught me a lot. And even even away from the -- that's great conversation -- -- -- -- -- we we can talk about anything we can now what was it about it that's your late nights together early on you know the great thing about you on the year everybody's that it is true. 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. In advance. Your legacy your legacy is not only that slot. Your legacy is this station. And we do the best they can keep going and let him. -- -- It's -- he's your friend. America to break character but you brought me up from a young up and all the BS that you coming in late you're the most prepared most ever been around. Hard worker and he went on your feet and I wish you well and a seed them one. 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 minute 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 account and or anything like prisons that is illegal and warned me about it. By the way you put orbits -- legacy -- -- this Madison don't hire now Matty it is way. But you're the reason I got into radio I used to go home after class play man. When my buddies and listen to the big show and that's when I got the idea that I wanted to do radio and it was all for you it was a dream come true. To come in and producers show and I'm eternally thankful for everything you've done for me and astute and so. You receive some of them artists are going to be Alaska to talk a lot of record never be broken -- or something that 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 as you were late on a regular basis and you tell the truth and over the last eight years with the exception of one. -- -- -- I don't know whether you're visiting your car wash your car filthy at the time traffic view -- straighten out -- -- and I'm really proud and really dominant view and a wonderful spring talent there's nobody that is way. -- like yeah it's not via my Tanzania. Divide everybody in and I say the same team bugle that I said do you the other day last year. Which have been able to do to help Michael -- I'll never forget. It's been an unbelievable -- from now on the occupier Sean -- to write 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. I went -- one out so I figured I would just -- to higher Shaughnessy in the because they've -- has there ever. -- were completely. Out. Just off the cuff because that's how I always. It's been an unbelievable ride I've 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 broadcast 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 our joint itself 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 it 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 -- many of them now we're taking a beating out there. Everybody's time comes and goes and there -- a period in which you can excel at something. And it doesn't mean that you're done you're washed up where you were 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 Jerry. That show was. Short radio goal for the longest period of time and hopefully we'll continue to -- 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 -- I'm not sure we could have done a lot of the stuff. And -- Have been guys that we've got to work with more recently and we can see what great guys in and -- great talent -- Also want to thank him completely. Always been a guy that. I tell you -- 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 role and Tito was telling a stuffed and I just. We -- written it was -- prologue to what we could've wrestled seriously it was a problem of us have to stuff are written a book on that night we could have Britain's ebooks with Terry Francona got to put Francona and told 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 George's stories in the Jordan stories Phnom. And won't -- -- who we love you because there's nobody better in the business and getting us on the air and getting a softy 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. And we wanted to and not doctor -- wanted to corner and bunkers and the Michael Jordan -- -- stopped but I love them dearly and I love these guys the producers. The engineer and crew 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 show I could not have done it by myself I keep reading that if it were just me. Index showed trust me you wouldn't sit decent here today seeing all these nice things you're saying about. Wouldn't how. I want -- much Jason wolf I want to thank -- it's taken a beating out there. I do not believe that this is Jason wolf's decision. But Jason wolf. Was the one who came and told me the other night on Tuesday night that they will move 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. A 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 wanna say as -- 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 manages 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 sports on an America I had an opportunity before us and this latest contract to -- -- national -- I turned it down. Because I love this -- 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 great 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 watch 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 was 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 what did the Dutch thanks to burger I do have my Twitter account available at some free time they've been bitching about the now for the last year about how I can't wait. But just what I got free time. I'm gonna beat my ass off -- Glenn. Thanks for the right everybody. An unbelievable. -- around the block. Around here and. Then maybe -- sort of -- personal slight left. -- better served me well us. -- -- Without it they go pretty. The big ones because the atoms -- that I tell you about. Talking more RED Hugh. Ford was bigger than it's because you. The last five years. Nobody asked any questions about the Celtics put forward certain. Don't question I have to it is if you haven't went with regard it's very glad it looked like the man on the -- -- -- finally ripe old -- every. We can usually very glad billboard here. We're glad that wanted to publicly thank you what you did and my career and -- Part of something very special here -- portrait of physical talent here. -- -- I wanted to work. 1012 feet.

Around yeah. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Listening to one -- grew up slipping into the big show I was over the moon first time you have.

Very -- pure love. From that day and hoping that. There's -- reason why you left the waters because there there's a reason why the radio station and think well there's good all those.
