    Travis and Tim

    Do yourself a favor and stab yourself in the ears instead of listening this morning. Most painful 15 minutes of radio I've ever listened to while driving in this morning.

    Re: Travis and Tim

    "Is this working?"
    "No? Why not"
    "Here call this guy and we'll see if things are fixed"

    That's what I got for the 5 minutes I listened before switching to Mike and Mike.

    On an overall "Travis and Tim" review: It's pretty bad. It's boring, they talk about nothing original, have no more insights than Larry Cotlar, and it makes for pretty bad radio.

    "Wait, try this phone, see if you can hear anything."
    "Hello?"
    "Nope, he can't hear us. Why don't you try *this?"
    "Hello?"
    "Nope, still can't hear us. I tell you what, instead of talking sports while we try to figure out this technical difficulty behind the scenes, why don't we just keep doing trial and error live on air with no regard for our listeners whatsoever? I mean, there's probably only five listening anyway."
    "Hello?"
    "Nope, still can't hear anyone."

    I didn't like it either and stopped listening a while ago.

    I know they are polarizing, but I really miss Deace and Miller, they had a great dynamic. Now 1460 is..... desolation....

    Re: Travis and Tim

    Is there a reason KXNO keeps hiring people who's priorities and loyalties are in another market about 140 miles west?

    Now imagine Travis Justice paired with Matt Perrault for 2 hours every day, and you'll have an idea what Omaha listeners were subjected to not so long ago.

    At least they'd be talking about what you'd expect them to be talking about.
    I would listen to Perrault from time to time when I lived in that area and thought he was OK. Either I wasn't listening enough or he's a lot better when he has a vested interest in what he's covering.
    I heard Miller talking yesterday (Matt on vacation) about how Matt is so good he'll be gone from this market soon. Found that interesting.

    This is what happens when you pay people 10 cents to do a show.

    They should just stick with larry the cable guy christmas songs for the whole show tomorrow, instead of a few seconds.

    Re: Travis and Tim

    HAHA good stuff here. I usually give Tim and Travis a shot each morning but usually turn it after 10 min. This morning was horrible, couldn't take a call! The guy was gonna talk about sport betting I believe, who the hell wants to listen to that in the morning?

    I only caught the end, take my wife to work every morning and this morning it was XM holiday music.... Not sure that's a step up.

    I actually enjoyed the 7:30-8:00 time which is when I listen. It did not include Tim, who seems like a nice guy, but does not have the voice for the radio.

    Re: Travis and Tim

    I kind of get tired when it comes to all the complaining directed at local radio personalities, but on the other hand, the Des Moines market has had more than a few turd sandwiches shoved down its collective throat.

    Travis and Tim seem like nice guys that mean well, but there is nothing interesting about either of them. Their show is awful and there is absolutely no reason to listen to KxNO until the Dan Patrick show starts.

    Travis was pretty good when he was on Todd & Tyler here in Omaha.
