If BaD Radio isn't on from 3-7 p.m. ...

stating facts isn’t trolling.  norm is the biggest draw for the station and the numbers reflect that. 

No they don’t. He’s a not a bigger draw than, in order, than Gordo, Junior, George, Bob, Corby, and Dan. 

The numbers for his relatively meaningless time slot don’t mean anything.

I've always wondered which host/hosts have the most sponsored ads. They all do live spots but I'm talking D&M Leasing, Bob's, etc. Just based on casual listening, it has to be Norm.

Nope. Pretty even amongst all three Musers, Bob, Dan, Corby and Norm.

Highest ratings on a Friday night sitcom.  Yeah John in Plano types.  If Norm were on another stations and went head to head in drive time he’d get smoked.

I always wonder what's goes through Donovan's mind when he listens to something like the All Pro foundation ad and notices that literally every hosts on the station (including Jake who has been a host for all of 5 minutes) except him has a part in it. Listening to the Ticket exclusively through the app I probably miss some of the ads, but it seems like even Mike Sirois, Ty Walker, and Danny Balis have more spots than Donovan.

For the Little Ticket listeners on the TuneIn Radio app, it appears they have recently disabled the ability to pause/ 30 sec skip backward/ forward, if you are using the built-in Ticket streaming link.  Same with a number of other streaming stations.  Guess Cumulus/ radio powers are cracking down. 

Solution to this is enter a manual URL for the Ticket, and save it as a favorite.  Launch from the URL and Pause/ 30 Sec. Skip functionality will be restored.  However, Record does not work.

I can't imagine anyone has more sponsors than Gordon adjusted for actual airtime. He does what....35 to 45 minutes a day and OMG all has multiple sponsors.

Check out ooTunes. It allows you to pause, record, scroll through recordings and even schedule future recordings. I record the 5:30am until I wake up parts of the Musers and can listen to them later on in the day whenever I want.

Norm is a Dallas legend. He was around long before the Little Ticket. The amount of connections he has in sports, business and the community are why he's still on the air and will be until he decides otherwise. He brings a built in audience and sponsors.

I’m highly aware of his body of work, his entire catalogue. Trying to figure out your point. Are you saying he would not get smoked versus any other show on the Ticket?

I'm saying he would pull a significant audience and sponsors. He'd have no problem finding a station.

Maybe. He’s an out of touch loon. I don’t know how he made Dallas legend status. And I don’t disagree with you. To me he ought to be a Dallas joke like Whitt or Greggo. Again, I recall him on HSE broadcasts and nobody liked him. He’s unintentional comedy on that station for 25+ years before he even joined. He’s not a fit, and if he left the comforting biosphere of the mothership I I think he’d get his nuts kicked in. I think The Fan already has better options.

He wouldn't go to The Fan. It would be ESPN (103) or one of the AMs.

I have to admit Norm bias. I was working at WFAA when he was doing morning drive followed by Kevin McCarthy 9-12 and John Rody Noon - 3. Those were some golden radio days.

Thanks! this looks like a great app.  I'm an android phone user, and it looks like they only have an ios version.  I'll check it out on my ipad though.

I sometimes record streaming audio with Applian's replay media catcher on my pc.  Then use windows task scheduler to automatically move the files to dropbox, for streaming to to my phone/ networked devices.  A little more involved to set up, but, it does a good job.

He’d lose big time to any Ticket show, just like he would have since the inception of the station.

Yeah, really enjoyed it, especially the Tommy Lee/Mary Kay Letourneau line of humor. I wouldn't mind them having him on again just to talk about how he got into the rap industry.

On board with the not understanding the Kid hate.  I think he's great.  And honestly a testament to the reach of the ticket.  Dude would go to sleep with the muesers.

my favorite thing about Kid, as opposed to Computer, is that he has great stories.  he knows famous people and tells funny, coherent stories.  yesterday was a great example.  it doesn't come off as gratuitous name-dropping.  it's much more genuine.  love me some Kid.

July Ratings

Hope you’re having a kick-ass summer, time once again for radio ratings.  This covers June 18 thru July 15, which falls during the bi-annual Tier 1 vacation parade and the July 4th weekend.  BaD Radio had a week’s vacation in this window, as did Bob from The Hardline, but the Musers took two full weeks off as well.  The ratings never stop, but vacations still happen. 

Again. Yes, the “stream counts. Always has”. In case you missed it here is the provided explanation from Nielsen’s website: "In the PPM ratings service, station refers to FCC- licensed AM and FM radio broadcasts in analog and digital formats, Internet streams of a licensed radio station, and HD Radio® primary or multicast broadcasts.” (Nielsen).

Now let’s slice into the meat (whaaat? No smoke ring? *gasp*).

Every show on the Ticket won their July time slot over its sports talk competitors.  The exception here was a tie in AM Drive and I’ll accept the blame since I was filling in for two of those weeks, and clearly I’m no Gordo. 

Market-wide listening was down again (-4.6%) and almost (-10%) since May.  

In July 46% of the Ticket’s ratings came from streaming listeners down a smidge from June's 49%, but also consistent in this new post-COVID time.  Since I was asked this elsewhere; pre-COVID the station’s average was about 20%.

M25-54 Dayparts 

6-10a: Ticket 3.9/ Fan 3.9 / ESPN 2.2

10a-Noon: Ticket 6.7 / Fan 5.0 / ESPN 1.9

Noon-3p: Ticket 4.9 / Fan 4.8/ ESPN 1.2

3-7p: Ticket 5.7 / Fan 3.9 / ESPN 1.7

M25-54 / 6a-7p / April -> May -> June -> July

Ticket: 6.4/#2 -> 7.3/#2 -> 6.5/#3 ->5.2/#5

Fan: 3.6/#10 -> 3.7/#10 -> 3.8/#10 -> 4.3#7

ESPN: 1.6/#24 -> 1.5/#23 -> 1.7 #19 -> 1.8/#19

I normally here’s where I post “Ticket Stream vs Fan Terrestrial” numbers, but I didn’t get them and don’t know them.  When I do, I’ll post them here.  Prom-prom.

So the "new" Hardline is overly reliant on Trifecta talk and just brought back Spin or Spare. I guess next week we'll get the return of Fax Fodder and the 2 Minute Drill.

Yeah I like trifecta talk but a couple times a week is a bit much.  Back in the day, didn't they used to do a few people at a time rather than always dedicating a full segment to each person.

Rhyner's kid is apparently in Dallas working on an MBA at SMU.  Some enterprising young Surlyite needs to get down on it and become an heir to the Rhyner estate.
