Yeah sure, there was a Red Sox/Yankees game last night, but since it was an ESPN national broadcast and not a NESN game, there wasn't any real reason to watch. So hopefully you gorged on DAVE DUNCAN'S local rock equivalent of chicken and waffles -- a tasty little treat we call Boston Accents. Goes down easy, and can be heard every Sunday night at 101.7 on that zesty FM dial or streaming online at wfnx.com.
