    Guess I will have to check that out. I can't stand Gambo. I heard Ash talking the other day about something he said that might get him fired. I thought he was kidding. I can't remember what the hell it was though or if it had anything to do with anything. Perhaps he knew this was coming.

    Guess I will move to 1060 AM in the morning, not that it matters all that much now that my work commute is only 8 minutes. :)

    I think Calvisi is way over the top. He is the epitome of the cheesey radio guy. I don't dislike him, but there are some days when I just can't listen to him at all.

    Agree. This plus the "THE MOST AMAZING THING IN THE WORLD JUST HAPPENED!!!...we'll tell you what it is after this" teases is why I stopped listening to 620.

    On the drive to work, I just listen to the iPod, then start streaming Chuck & Vince when I get to the office. I miss the first hour of the show, but stream the podcast later that day.

    While I'm on the subject, I used to listen to Bickley and MJ every day, too, but it seems like whenever I tune them in, they're either replaying an interview they've already aired, replaying a huge piece of the Dan Patrick show or talking to that concert promoter that has nothing to do with sports.

    I'd usually turn down the volume during any of Gambo or Wolf's commercial endorsements at any time of the day, so that tells me where I stand on them.

    But at least if you listen long enough to KTAR you'll find yourself floating in the action as described by Greg Schulte. Once Al McCoy retires (hopefully never) a lot of people will start to realize just how important Schulte is to Phoenix sports himself.

    I remember when Greg Schulte co-hosted 620 Sportsline, back when sports talk radio was reasonable people talking about sports, not shock jocks trying to get attention. Also, I remember Todd Walsh sending me a signed letter after I called in for some reason and thought that was very nice of him. :)

    I remember listening to John Moynihan at night on KOY. I think he had the same callers every night.

    I find Bickley's smarmy, holier than thou, attitude absolutely unlistenable. Add to that a voice that sounds like a car starter turning over and over and it is just painful.

    I could listen to La Cava on the radio. He sounds a lot more knowledgable if you don't have to look at his face while he is talking.

    I remember doing homework while listening to Lee Hamilton. Why is it that it is so hard to find someone to do radio who actually has a voice for radio, has true knowledge of the sports scene and a slight bit of decency and class.

    They are ALL terrible. the most stomachable was Gambo and Ash though.

    And switching up the lineup isnt going to make the station as a whole any more tolerable. I'll just be annoyed by certain people and different times of the day now.

    and i WILL not be listening to Doug and Wolfe in the afternoon. that is for sure. the ONLY reason i listened to them in the morning because between 910 and 620, they were the only locals. i think i'll be giving 1060 a try for now at all times of the day.

    I wonder what Ash did? I am kind of surprised though that Gambo is not standing by his side. They negotiated every contract together with each other. They coordinated the move to KTAR. They have done everything as a team.

    Either Ash and Gambo's partnership went south which might explain why Gambo is not standing by him or Gambo is a turn coat. Seriously, the two of them could quit KTAR tomorrow and get another gig.

    Like them or hate them, they have been the ratings kings as a pair.

    Both probobly are trying to go the LaCava route to get into network sportscasting.

    They are staking out on their own for bigger things, IMO.

    Likely Ash did nothing to get fired but it was simply a money issue. When the people in charge emphasize that "it isn't about the money," 99 times out of 100 it is.
