I was shocked to hear they got rid of the Franchise. I actually called When I lived in Robbinsdale.
That is when the station was the Whale or something in the early 90's, anyway Chad was trying to launch a sports talk show and when all we had were Tom and Dan, then Tom got too big for Dan and he muscled it into the KQ morning crew thing. There really was nothing out there dedicated to sports, anything that was dedicated for more than a half hour. The ironic thing was once KFAN was born out of the whale and got popular, Chad starting talking less and less about sports.
I like him for the most part, but you make a great point about spreading out a story to nowhere and then with the tangent there was always the threat that he would never come back to the point.
Tom Barnyard. The irony is I had to find a new station to listen to in the am because I couldn't stand listening to his whiny babyness, it turned out to be the Fan. Fortunately he is on opposite the Bitter One, so I can switch back to KQ in the pm.
Yeah I was going to a conference in Bloomington in the late 90's maybe early 2000 and I clicked on to listen to him and Terri Train and she was calling him bandwagon, which he totally was, and I heard him utter his famous BLOW ME.........a kiss line, live. He actually got in a little trouble, scolding over that one.
Tom Barnard is a blow hard of Rush proportions and just as big a hypocritical control freak. He once drove through Long Prairie and thought he heard the little station swear and he turned them into the FCC. No lie, around 1991 or 92, they had to defend themself, luckly they had the tape on the time that the Tommy B was passing through. No swearing. I guess his grandparents had a lake place in the area and talked about Long Prairie often.
