KCSP Kansas City (610 Sports) Midday Fill-In

Category: Kansas City - KCSP - 610 Sports

So, when I was in Kansas City, the company I worked for owned 8 stations in 1 building. One of which, was a Sports-talk station. I was very friendly with everyone who worked there, and as you can hear elsewhere in this archive, would sit in on the station’s weekly round table discussions. So…one day, I’m in the bathroom, and the station’s Program Director asked me if I wanted to do a fill-in for their midday guy. He had a personal matter to attend to, and they needed someone. I said “sure!” and after getting my boss’ OK, proceeded to do the gig. These (unfortunately low quality compressed) clips are the result. Enjoy!

Hour One: I discuss what constitutes a “sport,”  and if fans in KC are paying more attention to college football due to the fact that Chiefs haven’t been good. Briefly touch on the Shawn Merriman situation.  And get into this; “are KU, MU & K-State legitimate national college football powers? If so…” Took some calls….Enjoy!

Hour Two: Ever heard of “Chess-Boxing?”It’s a sport! In this hour, I discuss the correlation between economics and the performance of the pro sports teams. And whether the media’s portrayal of Kansas City as a “small market” influences a franchise’s ability to sign “superstar players.” I also go through a list of some guys that could help the Chiefs. And in hindsight, they need to sign some of them 🙂 Again, this was pre-season and I literally laugh at Denver Broncos fans. Who knew they were going to be good? None of us. And yes…I take some calls. And attempt to predict the 2009 Kansas City Chiefs season. (I went 6-10…get it 610 Sports???) Nah…I’m not that smart. I was ALMOST spot on with the Chiefs beating the Cowboys. Except…they blew it. My prediction was that the Chiefs get their first win in Jacksonville. We’ll see if I know my shtuff!

Some have suggested I get into Sports Radio.  Your thoughts?
