RE: Sports Monster
This morning was a perfect example of the difference between Bobby and Bill, not only did Bobby have Mike Keith on to talk about the Titans trading the 1st pick this morning
(Keith is a weekly regular during football season) but they have a such a good relation that Keith is the one who reached out to Bobby and asked if he wanted him to come on.

The morning show is pretty good. I really have no complaints with it. They do a good job mixing things up and talking about all the teams. Also do a good job bringing in relevant guests. A lot of times they would have the play-by-play guy for ETSU's opponent on.

Bill Meade is a good play-by-play guy but his show is beyond terrible. Just because the people who call in don't always want to talk ETSU (who has time to sit on hold that long) doesn't mean there aren't people who would rather hear about it than the Celtics, Bud Selig hate, Pete Rose, Dallas Cowboys hate or him reciting a whole article on the air.

RE: Sports Monster
I think Bobby does a great job and is always prepared. I enjoy Mon, Wed, and Fridays when he has Kenny Hawkins in studio for the entire show. I didn't always care for Kenny on WJHL, but over the years on the Monster, I've found him to be funny and self-depricating.

I cannot tolerate Tuesdays and Thursdays when Steve Haas (aka BUD) is on the show. He seems to be the "get off my lawn guy" regarless of what's being discussed. He always wants to take the devil's advocate position on anything that is popular in this area. Also, he doesn't watch that much sports, but has an opinion anyway.

Regarding Bill, I don't care for his show, but he is a very good play-by-play guy. I couldn't help but feel for him when he would do the arby's classic and had to listen to Paul Overbay for hour upon hour. I have NEVER heard anyone that made my want to break my radio like Overbay used to. What a tool.

I like the whole week with bobby. Kenny and Bud are both great to me and it is great imo.

Bill Meade sucks hard and hates ETSU and I wish I could kick his ass to Knoxville.

I'm a regular morning listener. I like Bobby and Kenny but my favorite team is Booby and Bud. I feel they have tremendous synergy. And Bud is a huge ETSU supporter.

I don't listen in the afternoon much but don't agree that Bill hates ETSU. He seems to mainly focus on UT and not give ETSU or anything else much attention if it doesn't involve the Vols.

Bobby and Kenny are great. Bud needs to stick to playing music on WQUT.

The afternoon show needs some new blood.

"Bud" ought to be a huge ETSU supporter, that's where he went to school if I'm not mistaken.

I do wish they would talk more about ETSU on the show. They (esp Bill) say the calls drive the show, but we all know that isn't exactly true. If they pitch the right topic, it will bring in lots of calls, and I've seen that happen with ETSU before.

Wow the Sports Monster show this morning has been wonderful. Jay Sandos brought fans up on all the sports. Basketball(men's and women's), football, baseball, softball. The calls have been super about the the Bucs. It is great to have a team in contention for a championship! Fans are really getting behind this team. Thank you Don Helman for the great show.

Don Helman is having another wonderful show this morning on the Monster. Bucs featured with Jay Sandos and they are show casing the Bucs. Well done!
