I do not see how those of you riding home can listen to these guys. Very boring. I have been a fan of the Steelers, Pens and Pirates since 79, however these guys are terrible. Boring. Is there any other alternative? I live in the Chicago area and both stations have very good afternoon shows.

No one listens to the drive home show? No opinions?

I would guess he means 104.7 but that is just a guess.

I was reading around. This would make the worst mix ever on radio.

Quote:
Controversial sports-talk host Mark Madden is set to return to radio later this year in an as-yet undetermined format, according to industry sources.

Madden, a source said, will join WXDX, a new-rock music station, and fill in the afternoon drive-time slot, at either 3 to 6 p.m. or 3 to 7 p.m, if contract details can be finalized.

Mark Madden is a good radio program. People listen, and find it funny.

Madden is a fat, disgusting slob who relies on filth and name dropping as a means to entertain. He is, however, about the only thing on the radio until Ellis comes on.

Thanks God for Sirius/XM

But people listen to him for that reason. It is fun watching someone that is such an asshole to everyone and thinks he is the greatest thing to walk the earth.

He is an @$$hole in real life also. He was a d!ck to me and my friends backstage at a WCW wrestling event when i was like 13. Though i do find him somewhat enteraining sometimes.

I like both of those shows, however B&B are quite arrogant and Mac has been replaced by Carmen. Mac now has his own show on 670 WSCR.
