    KXNO...

    Personally I enjoy listening to all programs on KXNO. I'm sure this will not be a welcomed statement among alot of CF users, so I would like to know what is it about KXNO that you just can't stand?

    I think the distinct purpose of radio personnel is to get people to talk about you, and looking at numerous posts/threads their doing a pretty good job. Keeps things interesting to say the least.

    Again, don't hate, I'm just curious.

    I don't mind the personalities...but it has taken much more of a Hawkeye slant across the board the last year.

    Ding, ding! Maybe more so than M&M arguing all the time.

    Re: KXNO...

    It's soap opera radio. They just stir the pot to create drama and listeners (and ratings, which makes advertising more valuable).

    I'm mostly talking about M&M and JM. Cotlar is like listening to your insane uncle ramble on about nothing in particular.

    I guarantee that guy wears crappy sweaters all the time.

    They're winning. We're losing.

    Do you listen when there isnt a coaching search going on? Anyone could do radio RIGHT NOW. Its when there isnt major stories they all are as bad as it gets, but they do have the only local sports radio station.

    Would love Murph and Fales on the radio

    Re: KXNO...

    maybe it's the lack of sports coverage...unless you like local high schools/college only talk. I about crapped my pants when I turned it over during a 1700 commercial and heard Cotlar talking to Kenny Anderson. About 12 years too late though. Funny thing was he was asking him questions about his college career.

    Maybe true, but the Hawks are going to end up with 9 wins and we got 2. You get the sense that their basketball team is on the right track after AL-Fraud left, can you say the same about the Cyclones after 3 years of McDermont?

    Oh and are there any other options for sports radio that cover the Cyclones?

    Manufactured arguments. It happens on Cotlar, and it obviously happens on Marty & Miller. It feels very staged.

    Re: KXNO...

    Cotlar - The guys nows less about sports in general than 95% of this message board. Does the guy ever read a sports page to know what is going on in the sports world today? Sad to say he knows more about music than he does about sports. Should be a disc jockey on some jazz radio station.

    M&M - Marty knows baseball and Miller knows horse racing. Could care less about horse racing. Could handle the baseball talk with Marty as he brings some East coast perspective. Thing I did not like is the constant bantering between the two acting like a couple of 2nd graders. Neither one has any solid connections with either the ISU or u of I programs which is pretty sad given how long they have been around.

    John Miller - I never have listened to his show so no issues here.

    Re: KXNO...

    I don't hate KXNO. I just don't think it's good, but I'm one of those people that only hear about it on here. If I lot more people would just voice their displeasure by turning it off I'd be happier.
