I think I am one of the few on this board who prefers 610; I could never get used to hearing 790 or 1560. Every time I turn to it they seem to have silence between talking (maybe it's just me that notices it). I think I'm one of the few that likes Josh Innes too. lol

I usually only listen to game day coverage on the ride home from Reliant while stuck in traffic though...and only if they won. Otherwise I can't bare to listen after a loss for about 24 hrs.

I like 610 too. Josh does too much at times, but lately he's been better IMO. Maybe because hes up for a raise or something.

I like Matt Thomas o's 610. Pallilo is Like listening to a book at times. He has a good show, but it's not all that entertaining to me.

I talk a lot of sports, football specifically. I can stand breaks from football and sports talk to hear "other stuff" occasionally. I often listen to 610 when I work out. Makes the workout fly by.

Meh.

Vandemeer is a good broadcaster....but morning radio guy, geez, he and Lopez are like two goofy 50 year old 5 year olds. Rome is perfect for the hard of hearing, since he repeats everything he says about a million times. Rich Lord and Josh Innes, my goodness I'd rather listen to Cher. Or Bono talking politics. Or Sean Penn talk. I'd rather listen to somebody eat a whole jar of mayonaise.

The Big Show is easily the BEST Show. Perfect combo of knowledgeable guys who aren't a) too smart for you to even say, "Hey how's it goin?" (Palilo) or b) too goofy to take seriously (VanDermeer). Honestly, I'd like 790 to just run 8/9 hour Big shows....and then just repeat them until the next one. Or like....since Matt Thomas show is funny but not sports and Pallilo is sports but not funny (at all) .....make them a less big show and balance each other out.

I quit listening to 610 because of Matt and Adam. Then when they went to 790 I had to switch back. Josh Innes is a jackass and who cares about someones dog or what movie is coming out. I want sports, I don't care who's birthday it is. We need the old 610 back and dump these new guys.

790 would be great... if they didn't focus on boring soccer, UH Football, and Astros. They got the crappy end of all the sports.

They'll goof around, for sure. And then they'll hit you over the head with this.

I only get to listen for about 45 minutes a day, so I don't know if Lance still gets to talk about pop culture and the local chef scene and stuff. But, they do crack it up on a regular basis.

Serious ?
I am with you. I like 610 early then go 790 when Rome comes on then usually back to 610 at 2 PM, but Josh of J&R makes ears bleed so may stay with 790, then the odd couple on 610 because Barry Warner is as old as I am and also a Jew like me, not to mention he has a good historical context. Lots of folks don't like Barry, but I do even though he tends to pontificate.

I think Vandemeer and Lopez would be 10x better if they were as die-hard as the 790 guys. The 790 guys sound like they are stat crunchers and watch every single game. Lopez sounds like he is a casual fan that can carry a conversation. My favorite was when Sapp called out lopez and said "how are you going to cover a team and ask me a question you dont even know the answer to".

Being far from home my only option sometimes is to listen to SportsRadio 610 online. I think they do an excellent job and to be honest I am somewhat blindsided by the overall negative response I am seeing on here so far.

I'm 100 miles South of Houston, and at work the station that comes in the best is 610, so I listen to that more than 790... 610 is okay for the most part, but I'd maybe listen to 790 a bit more if it came in clearer...

well, up until Pallilo comes on...

Man, I just don't know about that guy... I like him, nice dude, pretty straight forward and all... He's smart as hell (what, a Rhodes Scholor or whatever it's called?), but c'mon! It'll be a game-week Friday or Monday after and 610 will be bumping with Texans and NFL talk all day... then I get in my truck, turn 790 on (better reception in the truck) and it's just a buzz-kill with Charlie talking about some tennis player in 1972 that won a match against some Brazilian who ended up getting into olympic swimming because they developed a fear of yellow, fuzzy balls... then he'll reel off every player in baseball history that was 5'9 or shorter, just there talking to himself about it... then he'll shoot off a "mmmmmmmm, not so much!"...

Josh Innis is starting to get on my nerves... again... I don't expect it to be 100% positive talk about the Texans or anything, trust me it gets old, but if you get proved wrong stop trying to find every way to make it sound right... if you're wrong, move along... And we get it, the Pittsburg Oline was banged up... he opened the Monday show with it, opened up every segment that day with it and brought it up all week... relevent point? yes... does it mean anything? yah, a W... move along...

The Voice and Trophy do a good job with the game. When they did a radio show together though, that was pretty bad.

Not listening to a whole lot of sports radio any more since 1560 went CPOD and LZ parted ways. I do catch 790 a little bit in the morning, but it's hard to listen with Matt & Adam. Not only have I never cared much for them because they can sound like whiney little beeatches, but since I have been listening the last couple of weeks, I've caught them several times just throwing out bad stats, misinformation and such. They're not very good.

But as long as LZ is there, and they keep bring in Larry Z as a weekly guest, I'll have to tolerate M & A.

After that they have a couple of local guys (Dylan Gwinn who I can't stand and Matt Thomas who is alright, but a little boring) and then they cap it with Charlie Palillo who is excellent in his own right.

I do like 610 for having local guys on throughout the weekend, which is very nice, especially when it's not football season. But they talk a lot about extra ciricular shit on 610 like movies and celebrity birthdays and ugh who cares.
My thoughts exactly. 610 should just change the title to general talk because they never actually: 1) take anyone's call 2) get pissed at people who disagree with them 3) talk about a bunch of non sports stuff as well as their personal lives. Seriously? I don't really care what your dog is doing just talk about the Houston sports franchises and local college teams.

I am willing to put up with Pallilo since he never talks about any one subject for too long. If he gets off tangent, he'll take another call and start talking about football again.

With SR610 they barely talk sports for half the show, and when they do it's usually not very well done.

though 2 and 3 are accurate for times, your 1 is absolutely false... they take calls all of the time (unless you're talking about Rome, who is not 610)...

I like 610 as well. If I have my radio on, it's almost always parked there. Innes does get annoying at times, but overall I like what they talk about. I gave all the other stations in town a chance but I always switch back to 610 within 30 minutes of trying another station.
