Happy Birthday! The Top 10 Things I Miss About The Ticket
Just because I'm dabbling on 105.3 The Fan doesn't mean I'm going to neglect or be conflicted about my sports media duties. Not at all.
In fact, just this morning I was driving the kid to school and listening to "Muse in the News" on 1310 AM The Ticket's Dunham & Miller Show when it hit me:
I really miss The Ticket.
I realize it's still a relevant, radically popular ratings monster that has a fancy new book out and is turning 15 today. (Congrats! Seems like only yesterday you were just, what, 12?) In the volatile climate of radio, 15 months is an achievement. For a station most thought wouldn't last 15 days, 15 years is a monumental, perhaps never-to-be-duplicated accomplishment. The Ticket deserves to take its bows and if you're in the House of Blues tonight consider yourself fortunate.
But there's something in the air. Something, a gut feeling spiced with an educated hunch, that tells me foundation-shaking changes are imminent. Something that says tonight's festivities might be both a celebration and a Last Supper.
The Ticket has lost its edge.
Off the top of my head and from the bottom of my heart, the Top 10 things I miss about The Ticket:
10. Fax Fodder.
9. The Bob Knight Show.
8. R.O. in Cokeville.
7. Dueling Leads.
6. Ask The Ticket.
5. Rolling Screenless.
4. The Devil Suit.
3. Greg Williams.
2. The Two-Minute Drill. Go!
1. The Rant.
