I heard this a while back. Didn't think 610 would really do it though.

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.
This guy is worse than Rome and his "crew" sucks as well.

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...
Their podcast on iTunes is some of the best sports/comedy radio there is.

Right about the time he fired Travis Rodgers.

I generally only listened to the interviews on Rome, I have to say he is a great interviewer.

I like the local talk throughout the day now....

It is nice to go on my lunch break and have the choice to listen to 790 or 610 now.

I know folks will say what about 1560, but I just could never get into that station...The sound quality is not good on my radio and the shows just never captivated me...
