Here’s your drive lineup for your listening enjoyment this am:
On 590 with Greg Brady and Jim Lang:
On TSN radio with Mike Richards
Dan Patrick just had Bob Costas on his show on 1050………….meanwhile Joey Vendetta is interviewing yet another hockey player in August (Matt Duchesne) on 590……………can you say mismatch ???
I was up early this morning so I actually listened in the car for 90 minutes to hear Mike Richards. It wasn’t bad, but generic at best, the same as every other station with morning drive, but with hockey, not enough for me to change a pre-set for.
Mike S, you are correct. Local only coverage used to be huge, to my Dad…Not everyone in this market cares about Leafs hockey, Jays baseball or Raptors hoops. Maybe its an age thing, but I like national feeds that cover 32 teams, not just 1, especially since the ones here are so bad for so long.
I agree totally that the ESPN coverage can be far superior to out of season filler. And besides, Duchesne plays for Colorado, nothing to do with Toronto, except for the fact he may live here.
Will TSN be airing the NFL Sunday show? That is excellent programming, almost better than watching. Until now, you have to pick it up on WGR from Buffalo. I could never figure out why The Fan would not have picked it up when they had room on Sunday’s after baseball season (when the Fan ran other ESPN programming). They would run Bills games instead. Big mistake.
Yeah. I’m glad Vendetta didn’t end up getting a regular gig on The Fan. Off season interviews with NHL players (guys who don’t play for the Leafs in particular) are such a bore.
Hoping Tim and Sid take over 1-4. That would be a much better add than Vendetta.
