Default Houston sports talk radio. 610 v. 790

Hope this is the right section. Who do you prefer? Can't stand Nick Wright in the morning. Don't really care how many cigs he smokes, his lib attitude and potty mouth. Like Koch and Kalu and it appears to me that 610 is trying to counter their success with Seth and Teddy 3 rings. Ted seems pretty arrogant to me. Really funny when all of these Guys try to act like experts on Basketball and Baseball. Just curious as to what others think...

I like pretty much the opposite of what everyone likes. I like 610 - the morning show, the 10-2 show, don't care for the afternoon show since josh left. Would rather listen to Charlie as long as he's talking about topics I care about. I like the afternoon show on 610 when Travis is there and I think they have dipped in ratings since josh left because They are adding Ted Johnson to the show and adding an extra hour.

I like the evening show. I like b straw too so I think it'll be a good listen. I like most of 610 except their afternoon show since josh left. Not a fan of Koch and Kalu. I mean...they are ok, but I can't listen to them daily.

My take on sports radio is maybe different from a lot of people because I have the radio on in my ear almost all day. When I'm getting read, on my way to work, at work, on my wY home, sometimes in the evenings. I listen to a lot of sports talk radio. Mainly 610.

Both 610 and 790 win. They're not Austin's 1300 The Zone.

Can anyone tell the difference in voice from Matt Thomas to Charlie Palillo? They sound exactly the same to me.

I listen to both. Switch back and forth to avoid commercials and for times when they start talking about non-sports stuff, or playing some silly gameshow, or reading "strange" non sports news stories.

610 is much improved in the afternoons with Sean Pendergast. I still cant believe how long they let the Innes experiment go on.

790 blows 610 away in every single time slot except the early afternoon when Jay Mohr is on 790.

jay mohr is a comedian doing sports and it's painfully obvious.

all his takes are clearly fed to him by his producer, and he constantly gets corrected when getting simple facts wrong....not to mention he mispronounces names all the time, stuff not even casual sports' fans get wrong.

when he goes away from talking about sports, he can be golden at times.

I listen primarily to 610.

Josh was an idiot ... good riddance. Nick isn't far behind, but tolerable.

Sean and Rich are good, but mostly because of Sean Pendergast.

I also like Seth Payne. He and Sean should be paired in a prime slot.

In the mornings its mostly 790. Wright and lopez do too many bits that just aren't funny to me. But they are Texans heavy so I do switch to them regularly. Afternoons I don;t like Seth Payne and his contrived anger. He's ok but not must listen to radio. I think Pallilo is very informed, but he just doesn't entertain me so I can't listen. All I know for sure is I am very happy about going into a football season and not have to hear Josh Innes and his lame schtick. I disliked him less over time, but during football season I don't want to listen to a DB fratboy.

I prefer 790 because they're a more pure sports talk radio. 610 goof around too much and when they stray to off-sports topic they take forever to get back on topic. The other day there was an interesting segment about Schaub's contract. The segment lasted about 8 minutes. They spent only 1 minute talking about it and the remaining 7 minutes was about the lint in Lance pocket. Lame.

Used to be able to tolerate John Lopez, but his contention this morning that speed traps were necessary was ridiculous and ignorant. What a total tool.

I like The Blitz on 97.5 FM. Those two dudes are constantly cracking me up, and even amuse me when they are not talking about sports. Heck, they even make it entertaining to hear about sports that I'm not interested in. I know their style is not for everyone, but it works for me.

Behind that, I enjoy the N.D. Kalu/Greg Koch. I get what some folks don't like about Koch, but that's kind of his appeal to me. He's rough around the edges and very unpolished, so you often get a perspective that comes from the gut and has not been cleared by corporate.

I like Charlie P. He's dry, but dude rarely puts up with idiot calls. I cannot take too much of his baseball talk, though. He's a purist and I'm a hater. MLB could cease to exist and I would simply not care.

The Seth Payne show is fun. He's another unpolished athlete, often wondering out loud if he's in over his head. You get a good perspective of both pro football and insight into the early years of the Texans. I could hang out with that guy. He just seems real and not full of himself.

Lastly is Teddy "3 Rings" Johnson. I see that he's joined Rich and Sean Pendergast, which could be an interesting dynamic. I think Pendergast is quickly becoming a favorite for me. I remember his epic calls in Jim Rome's Smack Off over the years, but never got to hear him on 1560 because of their weak-assed signal. Now that I get to hear him regularly, he really shows a depth in intelligence, witty comments, and some just funny insight that has been really enjoyable.

As far as those I don't like, Josh Penis is gone!! Yay! Now if they could just jettison that Nick Wright doofus. I'm not a big fan of Lopez, but he's bearable, I guess. But add him with Wright, and I'd rather listen to white noise than waste any time getting aggravated with their blather.
