Ugh, Reid Wilkins is filling in for Stauffer while Bob is on holidays.
I can't stand Wilkins. It drives me nuts everytime he interviews players he says 'yeah' at the end if the players response. Every time.

I think why I dislike him so much is that when I listen to Stauffer, I feel like I'm listening to somewhat of an expert. I'd even take is as far as an insider of sorts. When I listen to Reid, I feel like I'm just listening to a casual Oilers fan. I don't like listening to a radio show where I feel like I know more about the Oilers and hockey than the host.

Have to say I had a good laugh at Reid's story about calling a swim meet and the guy that won whose last name was fish.

I'll stay on record saying I'm really enjoying the Edmonton sports talk radio sceene. There's a lot of talented people doing a good job on ched and tsn 1260.

The greatest day of my life (besides the day i gave my beautiful, loving wife a dazzling solitaire) was the day i discovered the spence diamonds blog. Yes, an actual blog. After i'm done reading it a few times everyday, if i have time, i stop by hf boards.

Given my longstanding bias against 630 CHED, I wish I could say everybody over there are hacks while all the talented people doing good jobs are on TSN 1260 but that's not really the case.

As an Eskmos fan first, I find CHED's CFL coverage to be abundant but generally shoddy- especially considering that they are the broadcast rightsholders. Bryan Hall's absolute devotion to the Eskimos and the CFL cannot be questioned but the fact that he was allowed to call the games for 20+ years after his best days were behind him is inexcusable. His replacement Morley Scott is a solid pro but after 4 seasons still fails to do the basics like identifying tacklers. It seems like he views the CFL as a demotion after losing his Oilers' gig to Bob Stauffer. Not helping at all is the presence of Dave Campbell who, although seemingly a nice guy, has no place on a football broadcast beyond that of a seldom-heard sideline reporter.

With Tencer gone from the CHED sports dept., there's really nobody left (besides Campbell doing football) that I find tough to listen to. Still, my radio dial rarely strays from not-exactly-perfect 1260 and no I don't work there.

Maybe you could send them a tweet?

Bryn wasn't the problem. Jake was the problem. (Great radio guy but knew zero about sports.)

The morning show now is heavy on schtick...but they also interview McKenzie, Dreger, Wyshinski, Rishaug, Macramella, Jack Armstrong (Hello) sprinkled in.

It is the Jim Rome template. Get a joke, beat it to death. Not saying it is good or bad, just is what it is.

This is me being cynical-- I know sponsors pay the bills--but I think the team straddles the line when they have 15 minutes on say in this case--a golf course and it is more or less on long Ad for the Golf course--when it is painfully obvious it is a paid AD--I think there should be more transparency in it

The beer feature is the same way, but there are some that might find it interesting to an extent, maybe even slightly informative.

If you do honestly have an issue with, and I'm not be a smart ***, contact the CRTC with the concern. They look after Radio stations and make sure they are operating above board.

I always feel for the Team during the late spring and summer, doing daily sports talk shows can get daunting when the Oilers (and NHL hockey) isn't as active, so sometimes some of the filler helps them through and they can make a couple bucks.
