I loved listening to Lovell Dyett. He was often at odds with the powers that be and the very politically connected in Boston, yet most every single person respected him. Maybe because Lovell respected his opponents. Lovell Dyett, hosted talk show on WBZ-AM nearly 40 years - Boston.com Mr. Dyett passionately argued for equal educational opportunities. Flynn advocated for the benefits of neighborhood schools and emphasized the plight of poor urban white children. The phone lines lit up and the talk went on until midnight on Saturdays. It was argue and fight, and then at the end of the night, we would go out for hamburgers or Chinese food, Flynn recalled. Thats how much we respected each other.
