    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    I wonder how many people actually do call all those shows, I know there used to be an old guy, maybe there still is, that used to call every sports show back when 1360 was still Homer. Then there is that one older black guy who always calls wanting to talk about NBA or something. I know those 2 arent fake callers. Maybe someone who works or worked at 700 or 1530 can shed some insight into how many of those people are actually fabricated.

    There is a guy "Dick from Dayton" who calls a ton of shows.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    Anyone remember Richard from Wheeling?? He was an absolute loon but I am almost positive he was real. I caught him on several talk shows all over the country but haven't heard him in five years or so.

    haha, yeah, "Dick from Dayton" is 100% real, I've met him several times in my line of work, he is a very strange cat.

    Well, this morning's Enquirer (7-31) has verified what I feared: Scott Sloan has been named the permanent replacement for Mike. I was hoping for more but I guess this is the state of local radio these days.

    No mention of who will replace Sloan in the evenings.

    That just means that I'll continue to listen to nationally syndicated radio on weekday mornings. WLW's loss

    Tomorrow is the day. It'll be good to once again hear a real talk show host at work. Interesting that a local station wants to carry Mike's show down here. I say...bring it on.

    Since Scott Sloan was moved out of the late-night slot on WLW radio into Mike's old morning period, this guy, Doc Thompson, has been tapped to fill the evening hours.

    Anybody heard or heard of him?

    I can't stand anymore Scott Sloan. He aggravates me.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Not a fan of Sloan at all still.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    For one, my wife is a teacher, and he spends half his show bashing them. He really speaks from his butt, on this issue. I get it, he doesn't want to pay more taxes, but instead of talking about solutions, he spends half his show talking about why teachers are not worth spit. I decided Friday, that I will be listening to much more ESPN radio.

    He is such a downgrade from Mike McConnell, it isn't funny.

    Anyone listening to Mike on WGN??

    I listen everyday but for some reason it just doesn't seem the same.

    I listen occasionally on Wi Fi radio. I will say if they syndicated him on a local station I would listen in my car given the dearth of choices.

    I'll be curious as to what Sloan's arbitron ratings are. If the Big One is still number one in his slot then I guess it proves it doesn't matter who you put in there
