Found May 08, 2012 on Rock the Red:
Early this morning, as Washington DC based Sports radio station 106.7 the Fan was discussing the Capitals Game 5 overtime loss to the New York Rangers, a Long Island based radio station called to add insult to injury.  Anthony, morning show host of progressive rock radio station WEHM, called the Junkies on-air to asking them to describe the feeling of last nights' loss while urging them to "be honest, as [the Caps] aren't coming back from this." Pretty good jabs from someone that labeled themselves a "die hard Islanders" fan. Click here to listen to the audio starting around 11:45.
