" I don't even like spending 2/3rds of the shows on interviews"


I dislike interviews with current players/coaches as much as fan calls. Only interviews I tend to enjoy are ones with media (like Glazer or Wojnarowski)

So what you people are saying is that you mostly hate sports talk radio

I'd rather listen to local shows than national shows 95% of the time. The 5% is usually NFL Network on Sirius/XM

I'd much rather hear some irrational Cam Newton bashing for 4 hours than some people questioning Suh taking out somebody's legs

I mean, who gives a shit about the Lions when I live in Panthers/ACC country?

I agree. Makes sense. I don't mind call in shows but hate if they keep a caller
on the phone all day. Especially a hillbilly dumbass. That's why I hated
the Pacman show while I lived in Charlotte .

I hear where you're coming from, but have to disagree somewhat, at least when it comes to the 3pm-7pm show on WFNZ

if a caller had a good or interesting point, Packer would usually give him 5 minutes on the air, whether he was discussing something with him, or completely calling him out

meanwhile, Taylor and Marc must have some quota sheet of # of calls per hour, that they somehow bungle by taking their sweet time with sponsors, while cutting off callers with legitimate points immediately to say "we're almost at the break" so they can spend 5 minutes sucking Wilburn Auto Body's overpriced dicks or talking about how delicious some average bar's shitty food is that they got in the studio for free

I mean, I know how radio works, they have to have sponsors to make money and stay on the air, but god damn, they would get more listeners, who in turn would be more likely to listen to the commercials instead of just switching stations during breaks, if they had some legitimate discussion

I mean shit, their topic today was "Which is worse, PEDs in baseball, college players getting paid, or the recent cheating in NASCAR". I mean, ok, talk about the bullshit that makes NASCAR a joke of a "sport" and compare it, but basing a 4 hour show on that is just kinda lazy imo

Lol you put a lot of thought into this.


I have no idea who is Marc or Taylor, its been while since I left
Charlotte . I want to stab myself when I hear NASCAR talk but
I live in NC so I have no choice. I feel the same about golf talk.
I really like Ovly(sp?) and Gold here in durham b/c they are well
aware that the media and fans are irrational.

Marc and Taylor currently fill Packman's timeslot. As bad as Packer was, they're worse

Taylor is Taylor Zarzour, who is not bad, though his company line towing forces him to just disconnect callers making a good point. Marc is Marc James who is a complete joke.

Anyway, point is Primetime with the Packman seemed inferior, but in hindsight, it was actually a good show

---

they do have Steve Smith on their show every Monday...and not like a 10 minute phone interview...he's in the studio all show for 4 hours every Monday....so thats pretty sweet

Frank and Buck turned into Frank and Moose (Muhammad) who left so now its Frank and Marc Yarbrough (spelling?)...Yarbs was the producer of The Morning Sports Page when it was Celania and Gary Williams...Celania is still my favorite of everybody on that station...but I like Bustin Loose cause even though Frank isn't that eloquent, he did play college ball and NFL ball and nobody else did on the station so I like his perspective...also, LOL

^^ Yeah, Knoxville radio is horrible too. Gave up long ago on that shit.

I've said it before, but listen to Chuck and Chernoff on 680 the Fan from 3pm to 6pm. Best Braves coverage by far, but they cover everything nationally too and dont do the typical "our local teams play in a vacuum" shit.

Logan is entertaining on the radio but I wouldn't want the man anywhere near my football program.

He knows a lot of football but he's fucking insane and doesn't have a bit of tact. There's a reason he's not coaching.

Brett Jensen is off the air in Charlotte. How the hell did he manage to stay on for 3 years? His show was easily the worst on the station.

Mark Thomas said, with all seriousness, that he believes one of the main reasons Lebron James decided to go back to wearing #23 in Cleveland is because of the economic state of the Cleveland citizens and the fact that they can still wear their old #23 jerseys and wont need to buy new jerseys now.

How the hell that guy is allowed to talk on the radio publicly is beyond me.

They've completely fucked the schedule and shows. What's on 620 in the morning? I like Mike, dmitri, and Lauren. That and Mike and Mike are fine. Then lebetard is good but they cut him early for David Glenn whose show should be like an hour long. Dan Patrick is gone for some reason. Cowherd and David Glenn at the same time gives me nothing to listen to. I used to have Jim Rome at that time but not anymore. Then we get to Adam and Joe, which is also good.

^Oh, the morning show. Nope, I like it. Why would you not listen on 99.3 though

I do listen on 99.3, just easier for me to refer to it as 620 the buzz.

Apparently Dan Patrick got bumped to 1550AM (in Raleigh) and the Sports Shop is now on 99.3 in the same time slot. I haven't given the Sports Shop more than a few minutes of a listen this week, but so far I'm wishing they would being the DP Show back.

What about The Morning Show do you like? I can handle Lauren and Maniscalco, but Dimitri absolutely kills the show for me. Lauren and Mike are the kings of the "audible sigh" when discussing a topic that frustrates them.

My favorite is Steve Czaban on Yahoo Sports Radio in the mornings. I've been a big fan of his since he was in Charlotte in the late 90s.

My second fav is Colin Cowherd... I don't understand why people hate him so much. I like his approach to sports talk... a lot of sociology and non sports comparisons.

The only thing that don't like is when he rarely brings up State. Just last week he said how Russell was told he wouldn't start his senior year. Totally wrong... but I sure as hell wouldn't call in to his show to correct him. Callers rarely come across as normal.

The only show that annoys me is that Dan Lebatard show...mostly because of that stupid stugotz voice but also in general.

Brownlow is okay when she's on with Adam and Joe but that group in the morning is painfully bad together.

Man, I don't know about that. I prefer my sports talk to only be tangentially related to sports, because it gets boring as shit to hear the same thing over and over. I preferred them in the morning to Mike and Mike. I guess I'll just listen to music. Or is the sports shop any good?

Hear him sometimes on 610AM here in the Charlotte area as a guest on some of their shows. He's not bad in small doses as a guest, but definitely not a fan of his regular show.
