APRIL RATINGS BOOK, PROPER GENTLEMEN OF SPORTS BACK ON TOP BY LM



Below are the latest ratings and for a more comprehensive Show by Show break down, check out David Barron's article in the Houston Chronicle

There were a few things that stood out in April.  I was shocked that Sports Radio 610 collectively didn't enjoy a sharp bump from NFL Draft.  Not only the four days of the draft but also the lead up to the draft.  In addition to, I am surprised that Proper Gentlemen of Sports seems to be the only show capitalizing on the Rockets success.  Of course I know there are other variables at hand but I ten to isolate major events that's going to move the needle.

Something to keep an eye on, the Astros.  If the Houston Astros continue to be relevant, this summer could be good in terms of ratings for the market.  I've observed a fall off in the summers of past but now there is actually something to peak interest, maybe things will be different.

JAMES HARDEN AND THE DRAKE CONCERT CONTROVERSY - Craig Shelton - 05.25.2015

JAMES HARDEN AND THE DRAKE CONCERT CONTROVERSY
Craig Shelton
05.25.2015

Here are the bullets on what I've been able to dig up on James Harden and the Drake concert controversy, per my source:

• A source tells me James Harden, while in OKC, went partying during the finals in Miami,  just as its being reported he did last night in Houston at the Drake concert.

• Source tells me, 'a large contingency of Rockets & Warriors were at the #Drake concert including , Harden, Draymond Green & Steph Curry.'

• A source tells me a popular ESPN nationally known tv broadcaster says, 'we were pulling for the Rockets,  but James let everyone down. He let his fans down'

• My source tells me the ESPN broadcaster is disappointed that, 'James has avoided us in the media.'

ROCKETS WIN IN 6 WITH PATRICK BEVERLY OR KJ MCDANIELS



THE ANSWERS

ROCKETS WIN IN 6 WITH PATRICK BEVERLY OR KJ MCDANIELS
Written By: LM

I largely believe sports is subjective.  Typically there are usually no absolutes and I can get down with that.  But there comes a point where a sports take is so absurd, I have to wonder if people think before they speak.

Memorial Day Monday as Matt Hammond filled in on Mad Radio (610), he said The Houston Rockets would have won in 6 if Patrick Beverley or KJ CcDaniels had played.

The Golden State Warriors beat the Memphis Grizzlies 4-2 with a good Point Guard Mike Conley (a tad gimpy) but Houston Rocket's Patrick Beverley is the answer for Steph Curry?  I mean lets totally forget the fact that Patrick Beverely hasn't exactly been the same in 2015 as we have become accustomed to watching.

While Matt Hammond's take on Beverely was arguable, his take on KJ MCDANIELS, was WTF STUPID.   How can KJ McDaniels even be a discussion when dude has barely played minutes as a Rocket and plus he's a 2 guard.  Are we to believe, we would get more out of McDaniels than James Harden.  That's fucking stupid.

It's becoming increasingly clear, this Matt Hammond dude (flash guy) is out of his league in Houston Sports Radio.  He says anything

FRED DAVIS BACK ON THE AIR - THE HD SHOW



FRED DAVIS BACK ON THE AIR - THE HD SHOW 
By: FRED DAVIS & HENRY THOMAS


It’s been a long time coming, but Henry Thomas and I are pleased to announce the debut of The HD Show Presented by Tom Peacock Cadillac, premiering on ESPN 97.5 June 1 from 7-9 pm. We’ll be on regularly on Mondays in that 7-9pm time slot.


For those that don’t know, Henry Thomas is a 14-year NFL veteran and Houston native. Henry played his college ball at LSU and then spent eight seasons with the Minnesota Vikings where he was the lynchpin of a 3-4 defense that included two Hall of Famers, Chris Doleman and John Randle. A 2-time Pro Bowler and former All-Pro Selection, Henry has the most sacks all-time of any true 3-4 nose tackle with 93.5 and amassed more than 1,000 combined career tackles, another all-time mark for a 3-4 NT. After two years with the Lions and another four seasons with the Patriots, Henry retired in 2000 and came back to the Bayou City.

Henry and I were introduced during my time at 610 where he joined the show every Wednesday during that disastrous 2-14 football season. Henry and I became friends and remained in contact after I was let go from 610. We’d always talked about doing a show, but it wasn’t until a few months ago that we finally gained some traction. Thankfully, after working diligently with ESPN GM Chris Hall, we made it happen and now we’re ready to make some noise in the Houston Sports Radio scene.

“This show is going to be informative, interactive and entertaining,” says Henry, an Eisenhower alum who hasn’t headlined his own radio show since his playing days. But don’t get it confused, Henry isn’t just a football guy, “I’ll talk baseball, yes, I know it’s boring, but I still watch baseball, and I know basketball too. We’re going to talk sports.” 

And with all the football jocks on the air in Houston, I’ll put HT’s knowledge and ability to break down pigskin with anybody in this town. All this guy did was play one of the most demanding positions in pro football – nose tackle – at 6-3 -285 lbs – essentially undersized – and out of 216 career games, only missed seven. 

And for anyone that’s heard Henry on air or knows him – he’s funny as hell, irreverent and is a genuine guy. What I appreciate about Henry and look forward to the most – he’s got my back and I can trust him. 

As for me, anyone that knows me from my days at 610, you know you’re going to get energy, entertainment, information and we’re going to take some chances. The show will be uptempo, and we’re going to talk sports, but we’ll get into everything – working out, music, ladies, kids, the city of Houston, life, you name it. One of the things Henry and I are committed to is making this a show that Houston can be proud of and eventually the #1 sports show in Houston.

HTown is hard working but it’s got its fair share of money and its fair share of Grit and Grime. We plan to appeal to everyone. You may not agree with us, or maybe you will, either way, we’re going to give you everything we have every show out. And there isn’t another show on air that sounds like us. 

“We look forward to making a show that’s not just our show, but it’s a Houston show,” says Henry. 
And there will be Haikus. See You Mondays.
