I could see the appeal if you're away from home, it's a little slice of the tristate area. When I'm traveling for a weekend or on vacation, I already start to miss the crappy NJ/NY car commercials or Frank Patti's Funeral Home commercial. So yeah, if I were far away, I'd probably listen to NY sports shows for the same reason lol I get it..
You nailed it. That is a big part of it. I grew up with the FAN, so it's a nice reminder of "days gone by", Keeps me connected to the tri-state area.
