Overnights has changed, last night was evidence of that. Paul Heath talking and talking and talking, without taking a breath, without taking a single talkback call in the two-odd hours I had it on. And the sound quality, coming from WA as he does, is really off, like a pre-record. I remember when AW tried a networked, news-heavy Overnights format; it tanked and within about 18 months they reverted back to the old State-based shows, with their odd-ball characters, American Truck driver-callers and all that :huh:
I don't know Paul Heath but maybe no one called in?

It has, I don't mind it. Its a cost thing but I think National overnights can work in SEN's case, should be mainly overseas sport. Its not ideal but better than replays.

I still think they could mix the replays up a bit. They have so many shows now a days. If they have to do repeats then I'd rather hear some interviews from SEN WA for example

I turn it off when the talk is overseas sport or NRL......I like hearing replays of interviews done in daytime and yes, do them from nation wide. I don't get to hear much of daytime shows, a bit here and a bit there is about it.

....and I wish someone would tell Russell to stop SHOUTING into the mic. He's painful enough without the shouting as well.

The bloke on Overnights who calls in from the USA - the truck-driver named Chris - he's not on the SEN payroll but he could talk at length under wet cement. They give his calls at least 20 minutes every night, I reckon sometimes it might even be 30+ minutes. I have no interest in American sports either.

The night Hargreaves wasn’t on last week (tue ? ) and Damo Watson replaced him , that regular caller Damien from Frankston calling in asking Watson if he can have a prize because it’s his birthday. damn cheek

Maybee in the old Sen days lol , maybee they could have given him a losing betting ticket from Sen track

Gary and Tim even though they don’t know much outside of AFL, they are actually good when not talking afl, they get different guest in and are enjoyable I find, thank god Bob has gone, will really miss the brilliant work of beardmen, moustachemen, big nostrilsmen, brilliant radio.,

Have always felt there was something suss there.....he is so very knowledgable about US sport, makes me wonder why he hasn't got a gig over there.....also, not once have I heard any truck/traffic sounds in background when he says he's travelling from A to B etc....sometimes I think he is actually here too.

Perhaps but there is a bit of a tradition of Americans ringing late-night radio. I remember Nightlife on ABC had an American bloke phone in nearly every night. Apparently he was disabled, and was always whinging about the US health care system, despite the fact that half the time he had a carer there, who used to say hello to Delroy from the background. (One day when playing the quiz he was being bathed, so we had this ridiculous situation of a mid-western American having his balls washed playing a radio quiz on the other side of the world :huh: )

breakky show a bit meh at the moment. tim and garry's lack of non afl knowledge is starting to shine through. actually this morning they werent able to provide in depth a question relating to an eagles deslisted player as they dont watch eagles games lol.

haha

anyway today mostly afl, and theres not much afl so yeah.

yesterday was good. Oz grand prix Andrew westacott was good, as was gazey talking about josh giddy. that was funny cause gazey couldnt hear them hahaha pissa.

todays alternative is rsn which is mostly horseys, which is fine cause the spring carnival is on.

t20 world cup starts in 5 days for us, nothing much on brekky?

The way SEN ignore the world game really annoys me and it’s not even my number one sport, but there are so many good news stories happening at the moment and they rarely even touch it, especially when live matches are literally happening when they are on air.

i think the breakfast team give some live scores, but of course no analysis as such. Do we expect it, like espn and overseas sports stations do in providing wide knowledge of sports? Perhaps we should, but the status quo is accepted so if youre sen, why ask hosts to improve their knowledge base? i mean, watson and lyon arent even across all things footy. scant regard for aflW, VFL.

another argument is if more time is dedicated to non afl, then ratings will drop. Perhaps, but the ratings arent great to begin with?

I think you'll find it's more to do with keeping costs down as most decent overseas presenters/journalists covering soccer etc. charge fees for their air time, which Hutchy simply isn't prepared to pay...
