    Now that Matt Jackson is no longer a part of 610, how do they keep the
    Eric Winston Show from sucking? The banter between those two was
    what made the show work. Winston would show up almost an hour
    before he was supposed to, and the war of knowledge between he
    and Jackson was radio gold.

    What do you guys think about that situation?

    Not much of a Matt Jackson fan, so it might get better for me. :)

    Matt Jackson wages a war on knowledge, not a war of knowledge.

    I'll give ya that, but his ability to play Winston's "bratty lil bro" is what makes
    the show go. I could only imagine the snorefest between Winston and
    Rich Lord.

    What a coup for 790.

    Matt and Adam rival John and Lance for best radio duo in Houston.

    Wow. This totally changes the landscape of the radio and 610 is now the trash the 790 once was

    Does jim Rome have an equity interest in 610, because I know it was a station responsible for his start nationally back in the day ? And what day of the week and time does Winston come on 610 ?

    Deluca is still with 790 so its still pretty trashy. That guy is such an east-coast turd sandwich.

    The past few weeks, you can hear Lesbian Craig with Deluca. Seems
    like the best sportstalkers in town are headed to 790, since 610 fired its
    other program director, Buffalo Bill. This "Gavin Spittle" clown is pure corporate.

    I'm not huge fan of Jackson, but he made Rich Lord bearable. I've never listened to 790, as i stream in California. Is it any good?

    It just got a lot better.

    Matt and Adam will rival John and Lance for best morning show (which is saying a lot). They're easily my favorite Houston hosts behind John and Lance and it's a shame 610 could never get them paired back up after Matt left the night show.

    Charlie Pallilo is pretty good at the drive home. He's a no non-sense all sports kind of guy, which can be good or bad depending on your preferences. I like it, personally. I also like his sports IQ, which is easily the best in the city.

    790 has nothing else besides that, but those are two damn good shows

    I'm tired of Lance's not so great impressions...but they're entertaining...I'll give to Lance though, he seems to stay tight with his homies from Richmond hiring them on and giving them gigs as well.

    I agree that 610 is flundering but Matt Jackson is a clown and I really don't see them doing a ton of damage. Wexler knows his stuff but I think Jackson is unbearable. I'll stick to 1560. I didn't listen to 610 anyways except Rome.

    The radio shows depend on what type of listener you are and what you want to spend air time on. I want sport talk with a bit of levity thrown in. I do not want impersonations, movie evals or 30 days of steroids or who was Tiger Woods sleeping with.
