the alternative is now Joe Rose or Brian London. UGH
London is the fucking WOAT
Yup. The local hour may not be as good as it was, but the alternatives are fucking brutal.
Yeah they’re awful
Haven’t listened to the local hour podcast yet but saw on Twitter dan was upset. Anyone listen to it?
he was emotional. they are all taking it as a "failure" that the local hour was taken off the air.
Maybe they should do some self evaluation and realize that Chris and Billy rambling doesn't make for good radio.
apparently it was ESPN's call to have Dan and Stu take a step back from the local hour
Maybe I am just a fan girl, but I listen to every episode and I haven't really felt a discernible drop off in the local hour. Sure it is different from what it used to be, and is still evolving, but still entertains the hell out of me. Now if I wasnt a DLB fan would the local hour draw me in? Probably not, and I think thats where the problem was for 790.
And now the beast is on during my drive to work
I like Tobin and Leroy but beast is insufferable
Beast is AWFUL
Supposedly they are going to create the local hour (i assume after the show for the next day) and have it ready by 8am, so people on the drive in can listen.
half the fun of the local hours is the off the wall calls like a random call from Ft. Wayne turning into a huge thing. Just like wake and take doesn't work on Stupodity, the local hour podcast is going to struggle by being pre-recorded when it comes to callers.
It’s the most downloaded portion of the show, so maybe not though.
Mike openly admits the station knew it was over when dan and stu backed away and also acknowledges that the local churches been bad.
Maybe things have changed
I haven't listened to today's local hour yet but I understood the news when it happened if the local radio station wanted a Dan-local-hour from 9-10 and instead got his silence and a bunch of young guys doing inside jokes and stories. I really like(d) the local hour but they switched up the show when Dan pulled back in a very significant way. So I get that side of it even if I personally liked the show.
That said, I don't know what was discussed today.
So I assume stan van gundy going to turner sports means he won’t be on the show next basketball season?
Guy is addicted to dropping nuggets. He'll makeappearances.
They have non-Espn guests on all the time. No reason he can’t still be a weekly host.
The Passan/Elmo bit is so cringy. Doesn't help that Dan's all "Dance monkey, dance!"
False. Elmo is hilarious.
The two Pipo calls were amazing.
2nd one to local Gainesville radio was His best yet.
Stugotz saying “vinny” van gogh was overrated destroyed me
LOUR podcast > local hour radio show.
It doesn't need to be certain lengths and is just more what it needs to be.
You don’t get the show.
There's nothing layered about an elmo impression.
This might not be a popular opinion but I’ve really gotten sick of Dominique Foxworth lately
His schtick where he’s sarcastic about literally everything (for 3 hours) has really gotten old IMO Earlier this week Stu was trying to talk about the California player paying thing and dominque just kept chiming in with snarky sarcastic bs that ruined the whole segment
I’ve never liked Dominique as a guest host. His takes are pretty generic and not very insightful.
Yea he's hit and miss, but more often than not it's a miss.
I do enjoy him at times, but he's over-dramatic even for this show.
Show was so much better with Izzy than Dominique today.
Izzy is a breath of fresh air
Gonna be a long few weeks with Dan out
I haven’t been able to listen much the last few weeks. Is he taking a month long honeymoon or something?
Yeah he’s taking like a month honeymoon before his wedding
Just to avoid the Grid of Death
Missin the gravy vampire
So one more week with no Dan? Hope everything is alright.
You know it's serious when Stugotz says they're thinking about him and they love him.
did something happen on his honeymoon? my listening has been spotty because of this "work" thing I have to do sometimes.
He was supposed to be back today. He’s back from the honeymoon (made a brief cameo on Friday’s show on TV). Stu said today he’s out for this week because of personal issues in a pretty serious tone. No guest host today seems to mean that this was unexpected.
hope everything is alright.
Haven't listened. But from the tone you guys are giving off, that sounds like death in the family. :(
Someone on the reddit page posted a selfie with him at Mt Sinai hospital so I would assume its a family member
damn, that sucks. But are you fucking serious whoever that was? Why you asking for selfies when someone is at the hospital?
Edit: saw the photo. WTF man. You can see on his face that he's going through some emotional shit. Why the fuck would you ask for a selfie.
Yea, its pretty cringe worthy. He's getting roasted for it, understandably so.
