    KXNO Reviews

    Instead of hijacking Arnaud's thread about his new show, I figured we could discuss the state of KXNO now that the new shows (except for Miller and Deace) have settled in. Here are my 2 cents:

    TNT - Brutal. As in, I'd rather listen to static for 2 hours. Travis knows so little about sports, it's pathetic. During a commerical, I turned from Mike & Mike a few days ago and Travis was talking the "GRE" scores schools have to maintain to remain eligible for the post season...come on, 99% of sports fans know its the APR. He also mentioned it was time to pack up the Longhorn Network because it was a huge failure. Riiiight, just like the B10 Network and the NFL Network are big failures because it took awhile for cable/satellite providers to pick them up. I'd rather listen to Cotlar and Conn's old morning show on repeat than listen to TNT...and that's saying something.

    Miller & Deace - Will be good. Like them or not (and you would like them if you take off your cardinal colored glasses), they know college football. And IMO were the best show on KXNO before they left and I'm looking forward to their new show.

    Murph & Andy - Highly entertaining. Some people may complain they don't talk enough sports but flip to ESPN radio if you want to hear the same 3 topics discussed all day long. They make me laugh and I enjoy listening each day.

    Miller & Brinson - I posted this in the other thread but Brinson is too full of "schtick" right now. But he needs some time to get settled in so I'll think he deserves a break. I typically listen to 30-60 minutes of their show each day and its pretty good.

    Every time I attempt to listen to M&B they are talking baseball. I hate baseball so I immediately turn it. Now that football is in swing I'll be listening even though I'm not a fan of Brinson. He does nothing for me but if they are talking football I won't mind. Unless Miller is in Lost Wages.

    I'm glad you did this. I never see people's opinions of Des Moines sports radio hosts on Cyclone Fanatic.

    Re: KXNO Reviews

    I try and give TNT a shot about once a week, and each time I dislike that show more. I dont know what it is, but it is by far the worst sports radio show in Des Moines right now.

    Miller and Deace are alright, never had much wrong with them, and I enjoy listening to them. But I'm pretty sure I would never be able to have a face to face conversation with either of them without being highly annoyed. Deace seems like a guy who would never let you get a word in and Miller seems like that guy who just conforms to the majority opinion and never says anything original.

    Murph and Andy, by far the best show in Des Moines. Its the show I listen to even on my days off. Would love to have a beer with those guys someday!

    Miller and Brinson is good too! I have always respected Miller, I think he is extremely unbiased and tells it how it is. I actually find Brinson to be a funny guy, and he is head to toes better than Miller past 2 partners.

    I don't know if anybody in the world hates it more than me when he says that 50 times a show.

    Re: KXNO Reviews

    TNT- Horrible, horrible...rather listen to NPR

    Miller & Deace- I dont care for these guy at all. I tuned in for 30 seconds today before I turned it off b/c its the same old thing. Word of the day repeated 4x from Deace and Miller gettting ready to gush over the Big10. No thanks.

    Murph and Andy- Best radio on air. Not always sports but its entertaining, they know their listeners and call'em like they see them.

    Miller and Brinson- I feel sorry somewhat for Miller guy cant catch a break. Show sucks.

    ....and to be fair 1700 shows suck too. Hooray for internet radio.

    Brinson is the worst they have had in that time slot...ever. He's just not talented. Terrible at interviewing, doesn't know sports, and lacks common sense.

    Is the new Miller & Deace show just about the BIG?

    TnT - I must be the only one that enjoys it. I listen to the podcast every day. Justice is entertaining.

    Miller and Deace - All college football all the time sounds great to me.

    Murph and Andy - Very entertaining. Even better with Hassel.

    Miller and Brinson - meh

    Gotta agree with most of your points. I have always enjoyed Miller, unbiased, fairly well informed and likes to talk NFL. They have Mitch Holthus and Chris Williams on regularly which I like. Unfortunately, Brinson sounds like he is trying to fit in too much. He just doesn't have much chemistry with Miller.

    Re: KXNO Reviews

    AS a Rome fan, I'm just ticked Miller and Deace couldn't cut into the DP show. At least I can stream Rome online...though sometimes I wish I could listen to both.

    Have you listened to Travis Justice? He's 5x worse. The guy tries to be edgy but knows little about sports and makes himself sound stupid when he is ranting about something he knows nothing about.
