Country radio hosts breaking up

Clear Channel announced this week that they were breaking up the well known and well liked "The House Foundation" in Nashville. Al Voecks and Duncan Stewart were for all practical purposes fired from their jobs as Gerry House's sidekicks. I realize this show is beloved by numerous people in Nashville and throughout the country music world. But I've personally never enjoyed this show. It just always struck me as being too bland. I was always a fan of Carl P. Mayfield who did an afternoon show on WSIX in the mid 90's and the syndicated John Boy and Billy show out of Charlotte. Those two shows seemed geared more toward the common man and woman while House's show always seemed geared more toward the elites of Green Hills and Franklin.
