I haven't listened to Rome since Kyle Brandt took over, no skin off my back having gone, but 610 is such a crappy station and the "local talent" sucks. 790 needs to can Mighty.

Default Re: KILT (610 AM) will end Rome's 14-year run with station

I was a Rome fan for a long time, but moving up here with no local station carrying him meant I had to stream. Now, when i do catch him, I wonder why in the heck did I used to like the show so much?

I hated Rome, his clones, and the callers who had a script rehearsed when they called in.

Pretty clear that a lot of you haven't listened to the show in the last 5 years or more.

Wish the local radio station would pull his show here. Doubt it though, they're proud to be one of the "original three" radio stations to carry him.

Could never understand the fascination with Rome. The guy is a grade A doucher, and his claim to fame was his douchiest moment when he fake bowed up to Jim Everett and called him Chrissy.

I'll take a local show over a national loud mouth any time.

I think the show was better 10 years ago. Funnier. It just grew stale. Still, there's more airtime than decent radio hosts in Houston. This extra time slot won't help that. I wish the Dan Patrick show would be picked up by one of these stations.

His funniest moments were after the OJ murders. He ran with that for years after that.

I like Dan Patrick's show. He's very wry, and his interviews are fantastic. He always softens them up, and then from left field comes some really tough questions.

I occasionally listened to Rome's radio show, when Matt Thomas just gets boring with it. But the Jungle suffered from too many calls from clones. They are rarely funny, and the inside slams against other clones is stale.

You can get the 'best' of Rome's 3 hour radio show, though, just by watching the 30 minute episodes of Rome is Burning. I think he shines on his tv show, without callers, and just has solid takes.

I prefer The Blitz on 97.5 at lunch. Those dudes are so sarcastic that I always end up laughing at least once a day when listening to them. Funniest was when they did a pepper spray test on their producer. They got a 1 day suspension for that stunt, and still refer to it today in hushed tones.

Awful. I guess it is for me because I been listening since I was a kid (11, I believe).

Even went to the tour stop with my pops when he came to then-Enron Field. Rome definitely is a love 'em or hate 'em kind of dude. Don't like the move, obviously, but understand it. DON'T understand why they gave Meltser and Davies a look though. Not a fan of either, really. Matt Thomas, if not for jokes, doesn't really bring much to me.

My favorite is when Rome repeats a joke 25 times in a row. He makes sure by the time he is done with it, it's not funny anymore.

It's not really a sports show anymore. It's more of a Howard Stern style with a bunch of idiots calling up and ranting about other clones.

Default Re: KILT (610 AM) will end Rome's 14-year run with station

Bittersweet for me... when the Rome sshow is good, it's good... when it's bad, it's really bad... Sometimes I would listen, sometimes I'd go to 790... it was really funny, then really annoying... what really bugged me was that the host, and all of his callers were a little too scripted... Then his guest hosts, I don't like most of those guys as hosts, and seeing how he takes so much vacation, becase "I get so much vacation", you have to hear from them a bunch... I think the Sklar brother may be some guys I'd like to toss back a few beers with, but to have to listen to them for three hours go back and forth with each other is like nails on a chalkboard... but I will miss the emailers and texters... and of course the triple U "sponsors"...

Really excited to see what the new guys bring, building a show from the ground up... I always thought Meltzer (sp?) could be really good, but was a little too crammed for time in that one hour which made for a weird show... now that he has a little time to breath, and a co-host for balance I think it could be a pretty awesome show...

I love this move! I tried to call 610 yesterday on my way home from Houston on I-10 while they were talking about it on J&R as I have been out of the loop on vacation all week and yesterday was the 1st I had heard of it.

Now I don't have to have radio silence from 11-2!
