View Full Version : News 610am - going down the shi$%^$?

I used to like listening to 610am in the mornings. They used to talk about a lot of things that I am interested in, like Jayhawks and Chiefs news. Or even just college hoops and college football in general. Even some NBA stuff. Here lately, however, all I hear on my drive to work (7:45-8:00am) is Roger Twibell talking about the Royals. Every damn day for the past couple of weeks, that is what I hear when I flip over there in the morning on the drive to work. Of course, I change the channel and just listen to 810.

Yeah, I know it is spring training and they are getting geared up for the season. But it hasn't even started yet. We have sports going on now that have meaning. The KU/MU game was a big game yesterday. No mention of it. What about the big trade the Chiefs made to acquire Matt Cassel and Mike Vrabel? I know 610 bought the rights to the Royals games last year, but this is getting beyond ridiculous. Anyone else have an opinion on this?

My bet is in this economy one of the two sports talkers will tank. Id be pleased. It would be nice to have a non sports radio station in KC with a signal that gets out further than raytown at night and that gives weather and news.

KC Radio overall sucks.

It's the curse of being the royal's flagship station. 810 sucked when they had the royals too. That's when 610 used to call itself "the football channel".

The Chiefs Radio Network has been in play off and on recently, and 101 KCFX has been able to retain the rights.

I am convinced that 610 hired Twibell in hopes of landing the broadcast rights since Twibell and Carl are buddy buddy. Now that Carl is gone everything has changed, and I'm not sure that 610 will survive given their low ratings.

He was embarrassing thirty years ago. It cracked me up to see he landed out here.

I like the morning guys on 810 (don't care much for the afternoon guys - KK is annoying at times). But I will change channels if they start talking about something that I don't want to listen to (such as NASCAR or MU news) or go to commercial.

I do think Neil Jones in the afternoon is alright.

The only decent sports in the morning is 1510 and the Mike and Mike show. But that's about it.

610 just plain sucks. Twibell is bad, Neil Jones is the most horrific radio host in history -- whiny, cuts people off, has no clue what the hell he's talking about most of the time -- and Nick Wright is a clown of epic proportions.

And 810 is just as bad, with the self-righteous KK and Clinksdork in the p.m. (still want to see that police video KK had suppressed) and the insanely annoying Steven St. Stupid in the a.m.

God bless my iPod ...

See, that is also what I was wondering. It may be that they do throw in a little bit of other stuff. Perhaps at the time I am driving to work it is always Royals discussion time.

Oh well, what can ya do? I sent them an email the other day complaining of this. It probably won't even get read, but at least it made me feel a little better. :)

Nah he didn't say that he was talking about something Keitzman said a long time ago you'd have to be a frequent listener to know that.

He basically said if one of these other guys Sanchez, Stafford etc become really good and we coulda had him we're all gonna look back and go "coulda had him"

No. Not at all.

But if you hear that someone's upside is Trent Green, that's not really a compliment. He was a successful system QB, but not a franchise guy. And when the line wasn't all world, there was a noticeable drop in his level of play.

More so than what there would have been with an elite talent.

See that's funny, i'm not saying Petro is wrong or Schlereth (sp?) on espn, because I just watched his video about the trade and he thought it was great because we get a guy that is a good athlete who can move on his feet and has great armstrength but needs to work on his accuracy. Is that not the polar opposite of Trent Green? Accuracy but little arm strength and 0 mobility?

I think the sports radio here is a lot worse then it was two years ago. Here's how I look at the two stations:

Twibell and MaCarrigher (sp?) - a really terrible show. Twibell (at least how he comes across on radio) is a pompous, arrogant guy. He's very boring, he's a HUGE KU homer, and he loves dropping names of all the athletes he knows or has interviewed. That show should be broadcast in nursing homes. And the way they read the texts "This from the 913…This from the 816…" Just stupid. For the first two months of the show I don't even think they took a call, and then it seemed like they only did it under duress. One of the worst shows I've ever heard.

The Border Patrol is better, but I hate how they play the music under themselves speaking, and St. John sometimes takes so long to get to what he's trying to say I turn the channel. A little too much jacking off with kidding each other around.

I like Chris and Cowboy. They do their homework on stuff, they at least have a knowledge of the NBA and Cowboy can talk NBA, even though they rarely let him. I know this is a big KU town, but I don't see why we need Iowa State/K-State breakdowns when there'e good NBA stories. But they're entertaining, I think they're funny.

I don't listen to Petro, though I understand he's good. I listen to Jim Rome mostly because I like having my emails read over the air.

Neal Jones is either too limited in his knowledge, or he thinks having a one track mind is good radio. He'll stay on one topic for 4 hours. "Hey Kansas City! Do you like the Cassell trade, yes or no? Call me!" Then you get tard after tard calling in and saying the same things over and over.

KK sucks. He's the only guy with a bigger ego that Twibell. He has a self righteous attitude even though he shouldn't. He whines and complains all the time. He makes obvious observations and acts like he just discovered cold fusion. He'll never admit that he's wrong. Really, he sucks. His show actually sucks worse than Twibell's. And the Smoke n Fire? A total abortion on air.

I like Nick Wright. I'm politically 180 degrees from him, but I like his show. He does his homework and he has opinions that aren't faked for the air.

And other things: The live press conferences 610 airs with Mangino and Bill Self are awful. Unlistenable.

What video are you talking about?

Short version: Several years ago, KK got pulled over with one of the 810 interns (a girl ;) ) riding shotgun and, when he got out of the car, his pants dropped around his ankles.

He didn't get a ticket, but there was a dash-cam video of the ordeal that magically disappeared (you can get them through FOI requests sometimes and, apparently, a few local folks [bloggers mainly] tried with no luck).

Not sure if its true, or an urban legend, but word has it KK managed to get the video suppressed -- or at least has managed to keep anyone from seeing it.

I just find it kinda funny and bring it up whenever KK is mentioned.
