Another morning in which the studios take on the feeling of a funeral home…with the newsroom and its noteworthy denizen bathed in darkness, as several candles blaze away.
I would ask John to consider putting a few of them out, but in between jacking the office heat to the level a little less than an average crematory, and popping enough popcorn for a double feature of GONE WITH THE WIND and HEAVEN’S GATE…he is clearly preoccupied.
Between, the popcorn and the heat and the overpowering floral scent of enough candles for a week’s worth of birthdays, the entire studio array smells as though a multi cinema opened up a funeral home.
Kind of feels like walking right into the film, CARRIE.
The biggest news this morning is the lovely Registry of Motor Vehicles opting to jack up its fees on all products and services by some ten percent.
You good folks utilizing Commonwealth roads are simply not doing enough to pick up the slack for more than a 53 million dollar budget gap.
A budget gap is a polite phrase for going “bust.”
You may initially bridle at this but please remember……the commonwealth is relying on you to pick up the slack left by all unlicensed uninsured “undocumented” drivers, who also use the motorways of the state.
SOMEONE has to pay for them!
You cannot expect them to either pay for themselves, or get off the roads.
They can’t get off the roads…not when there are beers to be quaffed, weed to be acquired and puffed, and bets to be put down.
So do your part; pony up for your registration, tags transfer, drivers license renewal…and don’t beef!
Remember…it’s all for your fellow man.

Bo Sullivan first began his long career at WHYN radio in 1990 as a sports talk show producer. Bo then moved on to become the host of that sports talk show. In 1993, Bo became the sports anchor and co-host for the WHYN morning show. After a few hiatuses, both planned and unplanned, Bo came back to stay in 1996 as the morning show sports anchor, producer, and co-host.
Born and raised in Westfield, he's now raising his own family there. He lives with his wife Kris and daughters Leighanne and Shannon. When Bo was growing up, his father Richard Sullivan was superintendent of schools in two local communities. Politics runs in the family. Brother Brian is a Westfield city councilor and brother Rick is the city's seven term mayor. Besides transporting his children to various activities including CCD and swimming lessons, he coaches both daughters in three different sports. He also works as a part-time political consultant. In his scarce spare time, Bo likes to golf and is a frequent visitor to the Connecticut casinos.
What does Bo like most about his position at WHYN? For one, he's a big fan of waking at 3:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. He also enjoys meeting the many loyal listeners to the show. His lifelong ambition is to open a sports bar and play Texas Hold 'em every day of his life.
