    KXNO's- Beat it segment

    I just wanted to see who else out there thinks that this is the best segment that Miller and Deace do in the morning? I want to hear about all the ISU/Iowa sports, but instead of rehashing the same stuff over and over everyday during the offseason .(ex..Big Ten Expansion day after day). I would much rather listen to a fun segment like this once a week and test my metal versus the callers instead of talking about Steve's bro-mance with Jon, or any Lost episodes that got plenty of attention this winter. What do you guys think? I wish it were a regular segment throughout the year.

    Re: KXNO's- Beat it segment

    I dont enjoy it that much but then again I dont know 75% of the songs that were played today.

    I will agree that the change in subject matter is nice.


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    Isn't there an app on the iPhone that could hep you cheat? I thought there was an app that could listen to music on the radio and then tell you the name of the song and the artist.

    They need to push beyond that 1978-1987 range once in awhile, though.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    They played a lot of stuff from the 90s and even stuff from the 2000s today.

    It saddened me that the only time they stepped outside that timeframe was for a Backstreet Boys song. Very telling.

    I would have to agree that jon's song selections sometimes are a bit strange, but again it makes the competition harder. I was born in 82' so his 70s-early 80's songs are pretty tough on me unless they are mainstream. Some of his "favorites" should strip him of his mancard, but it makes for good radio.

    It's called "Shazam". It recognizes the song and tells you the artist and what album it appeared on.

    Re: KXNO's- Beat it segment

    I dont want to make every set a layup. I like to challenge people. This is the first time we have done Beat It since last summer..fun to break something like this out, out of the blue.

    re: The Lost stuff...we talked about that show for 20 minutes a week, max, and some folks act like its all we did. I guess I should be thankful that so many people were listening to the program at 6:30 on Wednesday mornings to be irritated about that segment ;)

    You guys should push Beat It to cover '68-03, or something like that. Work a little wider range. Definitely enjoy the segment though.

    Each contestant should get a five second "extender" option. There was a lot of them I would have known with a little more time.
