Reader: Peter Boyles was like the history teacher I never paid attention to

A week since Peter Boyles was fired by KHOW after an incident involving his longtime producer, fans continue to lament his departure -- even on Comment of the Day posts like this one.

Here's a post by a Boyles loyalist.

I listened to Pete for the better part of the 8 years I lived in Colorado and continued listening until his departure. He was, in essence, the history teacher I never paid attention to in high school. There was a degree of critical thinking that he expected of his callers and his audience. I connected with his stories of growing up in a working class family in Pittsburgh. The one aspect I most enjoyed is that he always seemed to have more questions than answers, his two most frequent being "What are we watching here?" and "How does this all end?" I really hope his voice emerges again. It's needed now, in this time, more than ever, but I won't hold it against him if he chooses private life and riding over radio. He was no Limbaugh or Hannity or Beck. And that was a good thing.
