Thread: Francesa

    Francesa

    I looked around and couldn't find a Mike Francesa thread-- I'm not even sure we need one-- but I had to post this somewhere because it actually made me laugh out loud.

    Re: Francesa

    Is there a missing link or video/audio or something on this thread?

    Francessa is terrible but I like WFAN in general. And now that ESPN is on FM it's like they died to me because the sound is terrible on FM for talk radio and I can't program a button for it on radios at home because it's on a different band than the AM stations. So I just listen 100% to WFAN now or no sports talk at all

    Its talk is solely focused on NY sports which is great if thats the teams that you follow. ESPN has too many national shows on. Do I really want to hear about Kentucky basketball or Tennessee football in the summer?

    If you like commercials and promos and 3 updates of useless information an hour, I guess its ok.

    That's my biggest knock on 660, they treat the 20/20 updates as programming when everyone else treats them as commercials. Memo to WFAN, we have the INTERNET, you know, that thing 90% of us have on our phones with us at all times. People already know the scores, they should just update on the radio once an hour, or at worst every 30 minutes. Get out of the stone age for gods sake.

    And not just that, but the 20/20's are long, ESPECIALLY the overnight sports flashes. They were very useful twenty years ago before the internet's explosion and smart phones, a time when people would call a company to receive the sports scores. It's time for a change. I think ESPN has the right idea. A short sports update every thirty minutes that only covers the super relevant news.

    I have it on in my office, it helps my day go much faster. How are the commericial on the radio different from the ton of commercials during the yankee games or any other sporting event?

    I lol'd! I like how Mike asks his staff if Sweeny is still on the line or if this was a new caller. Hilarious

    I listen to it all the time - WFAN and I switch to 880am when the Geico commercials come on.

    The only other time I switch from WFAN is when people start arguing back and forth. I can't listen to that.

    I don't get the idea of watching radio on TV.
