    KXNO Poll/Discussion

    With all the debate lately of the KXNO radio stations especially the M&M time slot, Id like to enter into a real discussion about who Cyclone fans would like to see on the 4-7 slot in the afternoon/evening.

    Ive given some poll options and of course other for those of you that just cant stand any of the ideas. Ive only listed items that I see that would be feasible (Deace isnt coming back, sorry) or people that have done a significant amount of radio in the past. I know wed love to have Chris Williams on the air or Brent Blum yet Chris is tied up with the Ames Tribune and Brent is too busy looking for a place to play golf this winter.

    Anywho vote and debate. This could be fun.

    Re: KXNO Poll/Discussion

    I'd say keep it the same because I like getting riled up by Marty, especially last night when he got so irate with Jaime and then when he came back after the break and Jaime was gone he thought all of a sudden that Jaime was a genius!

    Re: KXNO Poll/Discussion

    I voted for Miller and Miller because I have brought this idea up before. My real vote would be that I don't care what they do as long as I don't have to listen to Marty anymore.

    Marty & Miller rock. I loved hearing Marty ask Pollard the hard questions yesterday. Until Marty & Miller returned (again), KXNO has been way tooooo soft on both Iowa & Iowa St.

    Re: KXNO Poll/Discussion

    To chime in myself, I've always enjoyed Jon Miller - despite his Iowa allegiance. I think he's honest while being respectful at the same time.

    I think Ken Miller as a similar person and anyone that can handle Marty and come back day after day to do it again - deserves some credit.

    So I'd enjoy that hybrid of Miller time or something similar to it. Give Jon his time alone, Ken his and then a slot of both of them together.

    I think it would make for some great radio.

    Yeah, I thought I might be the only person out there who thought this. As much as I disgaree with Marty, I love how riled up he gets, and gets his listners. I would love to square off in a debate with the man someday!

    Re: KXNO Poll/Discussion

    I have always liked Jon Miller also, he may be a Hawk fan but he is loyal and tells it how it is. Plus he brings on the Cyclone guys and sometimes it is good to hear a view point about the Cyclones from the other side. On the Marty and Miller side, I also like the show also. It is fun to listen to, yeah Marty may get angry and get riled up but it is entertaining. Plus I find listening to these shows while driving is a lot better than listening to regular radio where they play the same songs all day long.

    Re: KXNO Poll/Discussion

    I voted "other". I like the Hybrid idea the most of the others. I don't think Jon could ever swing 6 hours on his own and I like having that healthy dose of local shows.

    Now I can't STAND Marty. Buh-bye. But the couple times I've heard Ken fly solo, it wasn't exactly riveting radio either.

    Mabye he'd ease into it better after some time, and I'd be willing to give him the chance. Jon has got much better in his short time doing a solo show.

    Re: KXNO Poll/Discussion

    Jon Miller's big problem is that about 90% of his callers are hawkfan. Giving him more time would seriously increase that problem. Loved the butt munch yesterday who claimed it's indisputable that hawkfan is more "affluent" than ISU's fans. Miller lapped that up.

    I don't mind Marty and Miller that much. Most of the media around here think it's their job to kiss Jamie's rump, they don't and it provides a nice contrast. And I guess I just don't need the sunshine pumping that we'd get with Williams and Blum, as someone suggested.

    Re: KXNO Poll/Discussion

    I think you're right. Jon's real problem is that, by virtue of his Hawk ties, most of his callers are Iowa fans and his show very often drifts the way of being an Iowa call in show - through no fault of his own. Some of that is ISU fan's fault in that if we called in more, that wouldn't happen

    Likewise, given his ties, he's stuck his neck out for ISU on more than a few occassions.

    Re: KXNO Poll/Discussion

    I know it's not Miller's fault hawkfan inundates his show, but they do have the option of screening better. I enjoy his schtick more than some hawk muttering about whether a recruit has popped a zit.

    Re: KXNO Poll/Discussion

    I think those of you saying Jon's show is only Hawkeye callers haven't listened this week. No, I'm not knocking you.

    If you would have listened in to some of his shows this week, especially Monday - a lot of it was ISU.

    It's not really up to Jon or any radio host who calls - that's up to the listeners. :)
