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
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.'
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.
