    KXNO

    Has KXNO given up on sports radio? Jon Miller is going through his favorite rock songs from the '80s. It's not like there's an ISU game tomorrow or anything. Or the Hawks meeting Greg Oden.

    Sad.

    Well, he just had Zable on. I guess that kind of counts as sportstalk.

    Re: KXNO

    dudes back in the day didnt sit around with their friends listening to the new journey album, unless with their gf (then they wouldn't admit it let alone talk about it). dudes would be excited about a new van halen album, and arguing about roth vs. hagar, or listen to ac/dc, or be cruising in their car.

    im thinking about starting a thread to give jon suggestions for dude radio. when it is dudes, definately wasn't any exploring your feminine side. jon dude and domesticated start with the same letter but that was pre domestication. most of the songs listed as bad songs from the 80's were indeed bad songs, but dudes wouldnt have known that back in the day because they would never have listened to them!

    Re: KXNO

    Travis Justice sports show has had his share of music lately also. Must be these people cannot talk sports for the whole time. Maybe they are checking internet for stories when they play music.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.
    Let my Fred's Four Horsemen ride: Georges, Hogue, Nader, and McKay.

    Re: KXNO

    As I have said before, I am not going to just talk sports for 50 weeks a year, 10 hours a week. Not in a market this size. On a station where we have 8 hours of local programming per day, in a market the size of Des Moines, we trip over each other to book many of the same people as it is.

    I talked about the ISU-KSU game in the open. How much of a preview can you honestly do on that? Earlier in the week, I had an ISU asst coach on, breaking down the year thus far, looking ahead, etc, for 18 minutes, a lengthy segment. You are not going to do that twice in a week. I talked in the open about Iowa-Ohio State. Earlier in the week, we spoke with Rob Howe of HawkeyeNation.com about Iowa hoops, previewed the Indy game a little bit. Again, not going to do that for 30 basketball games a year.

    I spent probably 5 hours of the week talking Pollard/ISU FB tx stuff. I interviewed Coach Sanderson on Monday for a 15 minute segment.

    The Hawks got the short shrift this week, to be sure...and I know that Marty and Miller care more about the NFL than I do, and they are on right after my show...so I am going to do things from time to time that I enjoy...and that I think a lot of people enjoy.

    Without a doubt, and without question, the phones are non-stop lit up, and my email inbox receives more action when we do the dude radio segments, than anything else.,..and we usually have busy phone lines to begin with.

    Hey Jon, the music was fine and a nice change of pace. Just never, I repeat never, hum, sing or drum along with the music. No radio host should ever do that.
