The streaming sounded better today, but not great. I tried to e-mail email@example.com and it got bounced back to me. I guess the e-mail must not be working, or I was sending things to the wrong address. I'm still waiting on XM news, hopefully we'll know something soon.
Thanks much Mark. I'll check that out when I go to the page tomorrow to listen to the show. I missed about the first 15 minutes of the show, but I heard them talking about how Dinger had been working on the streaming over the weekend and said he had fixed it. There still seem to be some glitches in it but I'm sure those will get fixed soon. I haven't decided yet if I like music or would like silence better during the breaks. The ultimate would be the "internet show" back again, but thats not going to happen.
I'm going to try the direct link tomorrow, because I hate having to type in my name and password on the WTEM site everytime I want to listen to the show. He is really getting back in stride and doing it well this week. I would like to hear something on the XM front, but I wonder if that would violate the "no syndication" part of the exit from the Bristol monster. Oh well, we'll know soon hopefully.
Caught the show for the first time today....very nice to hear him on the radio again. He talked briefly about "the third and fourth hours being on in selected markets"....was he joking? I assume that he was joking. Maybe I misunderstodd because I turned the show on only a few minutes after waking up.

Yes, it was a joke. It's partially about making fun of the show being on two hours and then repeated. It's also making fun of the bickering that goes on when shows lose part of their show to another show. For example, there was much complaining with the Gnome's show in Chicago took away TK's third hour (which led to much kvetching by TK about his former friend Bobby Snyder, who ran the station in Chic.)
The two guests I am most looking forward to coming back are Gammons and Ryan. They were two of my favorites on the old show, and I am sure they will be great on the new one. Gammons is just so incredibly knowledgeable, smart and funny on baseball and TK & Bobby have such an great chemistry that its fun to listen to them talk. The callers thing will get worked out in the near future, and I predict he'll wind up taking some. I've never heard LeBatard's whole show in Miami either, but from the parts of it I have heard on DP, it doesn't sound all that great. His Sunday morning show was great, when I got up early enough to hear it, but with a co-host 5 days a week is a different deal entirely. Also, I read on a message board that Gnome's Chicago affiliate was considering moving him to late nights. I'm sure TK would smile if he saw this.
Mark...congrats on having two e-mails read this morning...
I've read the original blog post; Ken was joking. Whoever reported this blown it out of proportion. (He also suggested that Trebek use a Bob Barker-like signoff but for marijuana instead of pets :D) EDIT:
