    Same here, I was hoping 790 might have a chance. 610 is a CBS affiliate, so maybe that has something to do with it. :kitten:

    Meh - keep the homers on 610. I prefer the quality on 790.

    On 790 we would have to hear Matt ****ing Jackson on the call. 45 minutes of U of H in the Texans Pre-game.

    The best part of the 610 gameday broadcast is ND Kalu. I think he's fair, doesn't try to pot stir, doesn't do the hyperbole thing.

    ND Kalu is fine, but the other guys just laugh for no reason whatsoever constantly and it really irritates me.

    They have Lance Zierlein, Adam Wexler, and Charlie Pallilo and don't have Josh Innes and John Lopez.

    Well, I give you Innes.....sometimes he is bearable but most of the time not so much I agree.

    I actually like Lopez and I know from reading this board at least I am in the minority. Reason for that is I find the guy funny...like...kind of guy I could see myself drinking a beer and telling dirty jokes to. I don't know what it is but him and Vandy when he blows a gasket crack me up if I am being honest.

    If those guys on 790 have some fun now and then I'd check it out. They're not all serious all the time are they? Like I hate sports shows that are like CNN for sports.... :gun:

    790 has Limpy Gwinn... So that's their cross to bear.

    I have 0 problem with this.

    In fact, I applaud it. :clap:

    Vandameer and Dre do a good job IMO.

    ...I agree.

    I mean, their week day programming is kinda weak, but the games themselves are well called I think.

    Easier to listen to than alot of TV broadcast teams.

    Wait, wouldn't it still actually be Vandy on the call as he is the actual Texans voice for games and 610 is really just an extension for that.

    I could be wrong but I thought they were 2 separate gigs just overlapping on the same station. So I would think 790 would carry Vandy doing the call.....

    My biggest beef with 610 is they don't talk a whole lot of sports in the morning hours and then it's Rome until 2pm. In that time frame 790 usually has Adam, Matt and Lance which is the best sports talk on Houston radio at the moment. 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.
