ND KALU RACIST SHAKEDOWN MATT THOMAS By LM



ND KALU GRACIST SHAKEDOWNS MATT THOMAS 
Written By: LM

Today, ND Kalu cross talked with Matt Thomas.  The segment started off with TV and quickly morphed into Matt calling In the Trenches "safe".  From that point, ND decided to give Matt an impromptu "racial exam".

ND KALU & MATT THOMAS

It was a damn good segment and it was totally fun spirited.  I got the feeling that Matt was feeling uncomfortable but I give him props for playing along..  I do want to clear up something ND said about Good Times.  Good Times didn't always end bad or sour, it mostly ended on a positive note (relatively speaking) outside
  • Continuations
  • James Death
  • Keith's injury
Good Times always ended with a positive message or something to always reinforced, "yea your shit suck in the ghetto but we are surviving".

It was a fun back and forth and honestly, I didn't hear it live but I was told it was a good segment. It was

ADAM CLANTON QUESTIONS SAM DEKKER ABOUT "SKINNY JEANS" BY LM




ADAM CLANTON QUESTIONS SAM DEKKER ABOUT "SKINNY JEANS"
Written By: LM

Friday morning, Houston draft pick joined Proper Gentlemen of Sports.  The interview was fiyah, partly because Sam Dekker's Houston Sports was on point.  As the interview was coming to a close, Adam Clanton asked a bad question.  I will be the first to say, I do not like the skinny jean culture however I do realize, young adults are wearing them.  In addition to, I do not like how Chandler Parson's continues to take shots at the City of Houston as a Dallas Maverick.

That said, I would not put a young player about shit that has to do with Chandler Parsons.  Is Chandler completely out of Houston's system?  Do we have to reference him?  Adam's question was so "left field" you can hear Lance Zierlein trying to clean it up by saying "it's a style" and finally going away from the discussion all together.

Bottom line, it was a bad question and I loved Dekker's response.

BENJAMIN ALLBRIGHT ON WITH HUSTLE TOWN SPORTS BY LM


BENJAMIN ALLBRIGHT ON WITH HUSTLE TOWN SPORTS
Written By: @sportsmedialm  

Benjamin Allbright joined Craig Shelton and Jayson Braddock on Hustle Town Sports.  It was a good interview but I was more intrigued by the "off the field discussions".

Apparently, there is a legacy beatwriter in Denver Mike Klis who went out of his way to discount the report.  What's interesting, it don't appear like he's trying to cover the Broncos but go out of his way to prove the news incorrect.




Mike Klis comes off as an old established media dude who is more worried about a younger media foe stepping on his territory.  To put this in a Houston perspective, it would be similar to John McClain throwing shade on Jayson Braddock or Pat D Stat.

I can only imagine that Denver's true football fans may look at Klis like some Houstonians look at John McClain.

Below is Benjamin Allbright's interview with Hustle Town Sports

NICK WRIGHT OWNS JOHN MCCLAIN "PEYTON MANNING RUMORS" BY LM




NICK WRIGHT OWNS JOHN MCCLAIN "PEYTON MANNING RUMORS"
WRITTEN BY: LM

Unless you have been living under a rock, Tuesday, news broke of Peyton Manning possible trade talks to the Houston Texans. As usual, Media (local and national) rushed to rip the messenger because teams will tell the truth.

Wednesday, Houston Texans Beatwriter John McClain joined Sports Radio 610's In The Loop for his weekly hit.  Nick Wright and John Lopez asked John McClain about the rumor,  below is the audio

NICK WRIGHT VS JOHN MCCLAIN


Check this out on Chirbit

What started off as an innocent reoccurring interview suddenly became McClain defending his credibility.  I understand McClain has 37 years in the business but that can't override common sense.  I wholeheartedly agree with Nick and Lopez, this rumor makes sense to a degree.  I do not care about the Houston part but I absolutely believe Denver is shopping Manning.

It's really funny how Beatwriters actually expect fanbases to believe what teams say.  A few days before the Houston Texans released Andre Johnson, the Texans pussy-footed around the question and viola Andre was released.  My point is, teams seldom disclose information to fans or Beatwriters.

As far as John McClain, I really do not believe he has the Homeboy Hookup with this Texans regime as he did with Gary Kubiak.

The final kicker was Sports Radio 610 having an article on their website confirming there were Peyton Rumors. Think about that.

I loved this exchanged, it was funny AF.  John McClain got pissed off because people had legit questions.  This is not the first time I have heard Nick question McClain and that's one thing about Nick I do like.

IN THE LOOP RECRUITING SERIAL CALLERS BY LM




IN THE LOOP RECRUITING SERIAL CALLERS
Written by: LM

I have been listening to talk radio for nearly 20 years in various genres.  From the beginning, the model seemed pretty simple.  
  • Host present topics
  • Host elaborate on topics
  • Host take phone calls
It boggles the mind that Sports Radio 610 has made a fairly simple process (callers into quantum physics.  This process has only worked with the best in the business for years.

Sports Radio 610 specifically Nick Wright ran away most of the callers.  Nick's first show, he laid out his feelings about callers to the show, he's pretty rigid.  I can also remember a time, Sports Radio 610 wanting to get away from "serial callers".  Serial Callers are the ones who routinely calls the show and overtime develop an identity.  

I have even noticed If I do hear a caller, you won't know what area they are from.  In the past, you called the show, screener asks "what area", when you got on the line, they identified you by name from area.  Most of the callers you know, were initially identified by areas, Brad In Spring Branch, Larry In Stafford, Mike In DA, Sean in Cypress.  Outside of Larry in Stafford, callers are no longer identified by their hood and hell Larry don't even call 610 anymore.

Tuesday morning, I couldn't help but laugh when In The Loop told the audience that they will be looking for some reoccurring callers to be identities when its nothing more than a serial caller.  It's a classic case of recreating the wheel.  Think about this for minute, a sports talk show has to create segments for callers, TALK RADIO.  Hell, even Martin Pane took calls on his fictitious show
IN THE LOOP RECRUITING CALLERS

Its jut funny that a station would go out of their way to run callers off and then realize they have a problem with callers.  Its crazy to think most in the audience wants to hear personalities' opinions and takes only.  The audience wants to hear various opinions not dictatorship radio.  Again, this is why other local stations call Sports Radio 610 Communist Radio.  Logical thing to do would be, just open up the damn lines, this is not top secret shit where you have to control the information flow.
