    My comments pretty much mirror Bob Gillis. I enjoyed hearing about the sports happenings each day on my ride home and really don’t care about hearing the same news every 10 minutes. I’ve listened to KOA for my afternoon ride home sports update ever since Lois left and to hear from Dave and Dave who knew what they were talking about relative to the sports topic of the day. I also notice in the voices, people aren’t particularly happy and comfortable with the new format. I think “someone” made a decision nobody likes except them. I think “someone” decided that they needed a women’s show now. Bad mistake. The old Dave and Dave show would make me laugh. This new format is boring. I truly hope “someone” gets a clue and returns back before football season starts otherwise you will permanently loose the loyal fan-base it took years to establish. I will periodically check in with hope.

    But for now, like Bob,
    Bye Bye!
