    I've been listening to this cat for a while now, and he's the ONLY host
    on our local airwaves to tell it like it is. He's on 790 from 10 till noon.

    If you've heard this guy's show, let me know what you think about it.

    I'll listen. Haven't checked him out and I like to stream sports radio when I'm working online.

    Does he tell it like it is, or does he just happen to share your opinion?

    He's certainly not the only honest sports guy on 790, let alone Houston.

    He's the anti-Vandermeer of Houston. I like to listen to both sides, but
    for the longest time, we've only got the HOMER side. In the afternoons
    you get Lord and Mccain, but we didn't get the other side until now.

    Gwynn's not a Texan's hater, he's just doesn't suck up to Texans' brass
    like those other guys do.

    Charlie Palillo goes without saying, and I'm only mentioning Gwynn because
    he's new. 790 now has local talk from 6 am all the way to 10 pm. Good
    radio, here.

    I still turn on 610 sometimes but they are so silly on there. I mean stupid silly. It's hard to listen to.

    I actually enjoy sports talk most when they take alot of fan phone calls..that peaks my interest most..I don't really care so much for the host's opinion but I do like hearing what the average Joe has to say. The guys that go to the games and spend the bucks. I'd rather hear that then listen to Marc Vandermeer talk about "Vanderkid".

    The loss of Andre Ware killed that show, in my opinion.
    And the loss of the "Sunday Block Party" killed the station.

    Haven't heard the guy before. Is he honest, of is he over the top negative like Jackson and Wexler? They annoy me.

    They fired most of the good talk guys on there..and kept the others. Marc just annoys me for some reason; he's football smart but he's just so silly. And the new guy with him hasn't struck a chord with me.

    IF I listen to them it's on Monday after a game usually because I enjoy the phone calls they take.

    Thanks for passing this along. I've felt like I've been in the Twilight Zone the last couple of days. Everyone is acting as if we've won the Super Bowl.

    I'm simply astonished that our fans are settling.

    Actually a new guy just started yesterday. I didn't get to listen much, but he's worked here before and seems like a tell it like it is guy. Anyways it's local now.

    As far as 610 goes yeah they lost it. I mean I don't mind them being homers, but man sometimes it was just hard to stomach. Sometimes they would just gloss over good stuff or give inadequate answers and just meh. BTW John Lopez is being called J-Lo.... really... thats sad.

    The mighty Gwin is pretty cool. He's pretty informed and actually demands a higher level of expectations. He acknowledges what the Texans do well, however he doesn't make excuses for their mistakes and acknowledges those as well. I like it.

    I've noticed "J Lo" like to toot his own horn alot...I think they had to get somebody in there that would be as silly as Vandermeer is. That's just a fluff show. Nothing more.

    I got tired of hearing about the "Vanderkid." Then, a few weeks ago, I was listening in the car and he told listeners to go to the "Vanderblog" and check it out.

    I'm about Vandersick of 610.

    I love listening to Palillo, but it sucks that he's more about Baseball and college hoops than he is about pro football :(

    But yeah the guy from 10 till noon is pretty decent. 790 was going through a bunch of static periods for awhile and they had some real buffoons on (I think it was syndicated guys from whatever network 790 is apart of), about 4 or 5 months ago. Nice to see they've hammered it out better.

    I like Gwinn. He doesn't sugarcoat anything. But I will be the first to admit that I probably like him because he shares my opinion.
