The crew has had several months to get comfortable with each other and it’s working with their ratings on the rise.
One reason it works so well is they try to be very frank and candid with listeners.
“I was wrong, I had the Chiefs at 10-6 and now I admit they’re terrible,” Binkley says.
Even former Chiefs star Bill Maas has been on a roll lately.
“Yes, I am aware of what Chiefs defensive end Shaun Smith said on Twitter, that ‘the Brownies suck and we’ll beat them by 10 points.'”
The Chiefs lost to Cleveland by 23 this past Sunday.
Then Mass added, “Had Marty been here Smith would have been released for that move. This is another reason the Chiefs are 2-11, there’s no fear of their coach. He lets them do pretty much whatever they want. Romeo needs to go.”
Yep, everyone is frank on 610’s afternoon drive show.
Speaking of which, they had that Frank guy, Frank Caliendo on recently. Caliendo just left Fox Sports after nine seasons. He’s basically today’s Rich Little and does the voices of TV and radio celebrities. Frank’s now a big star and has moved his show to ESPN. And his impression of John Madden has become comedy legend.
Frank was a regular at Stanford’s in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.
Caliendo and I became pals and he often did my voice on stage and off. Just last year I was in Vegas where Frank was performing and he had me backstage, great guy. Oddly he was replaced on Fox by Stanfords former door-guy turned comic Rob Riggle.
Yes, Frank is just that frank. He did a couple impressions for Binkley, Vernier, Pearson, including Morgan Freeman and Charles Barkley before he ended with a Craig Glazer impression. He did a bit about how I think I discovered everyone in comedy like Jerry Seinfeld and even Frank himself. He ended with my advice to the stars by saying, “Yep, they all went on to make millions, and here I am stuck in Kansas City….Think about it.”
Yeah, there is a bit of truth in most comedy and Frank was just being frank.
