Absolutely pathetic

I will keep the segment with Gagliardi, however in reality, you are not worthy of this national platform.

You want respect and you crave visibility for the Pokes, and yet, when given a platform on the stage as big as has been delivered you...you fail.

Look it, I don't rely on phone calls to make my shows go, but in this case, I believe the disrespect you have shown the writer in question is beyond comprehension and shows a lack of awareness.

And I wanted to bring a national radio show to the stadium this fall?

Two phone calls for the segment doesn't come close to getting it done -- particularly if you possess a SXM account.

Lastly for now, you become agitated when someone from another part of the country doesn't take the Pokes or their fan base seriously, and yet, as the result of your inaction, you feed them all the fuel they need to burn their fire.

I put this segment on, they listen, and laugh and cackle at the apparent disinterest at least from a caller driven standpoint.

I don't know, perhaps its because of the passion that I have for the program and the entire state of Wyoming that this bothers me to the extent I am allowing it to...maybe I should be just as cavalier as the majority of ya'll are.

My apologies to Gagliardi on behalf of every person here with exception of the caller from Council Bluffs and from Cheyenne on the show tonight.

How do we listen Dino?
Is it a sirius xm channel? Because if so, I do not have that...

Neither do I, and no website membership either. I think most people here only get FM and AM radio. So, it's not really a lack of interest, but a lack of access to the radio program itself.

Well if a person has access to SXM there is no excuse -- I am not saying that every member of this board needs to pick up the phone and call Gags, but two measly phone calls to the man in nearly 40 minutes?

That man is taking time out of his schedule and talking about an apparent passion that exists here for a number of people concerning Wyoming football, he's not getting paid dime one, and neither too is SXM putting a few extra dollars in my paycheck for implementing the segment...I'm doing it purely and ONLY to advance the Wyoming football program.

Is there any sane person out there who believes my superiors actually want me to keep this feature on my show? Hell no! They want me to ditch it as fast as possible -- and what argument can I offer back to keep it if they mandate I kill it over lack of interest?

For those not in possession of a SXM account, I did provide the toll free number to call in - that -- and SXM provides FREE 2 week subscriptions online.

So if we get the guest pass, we can listen for two weeks, so we actually know what you are talking about in the show if/when we call in?

I don't have SXM either. I just don't have any need for it. I'd listen to the show if I already had access, but I already have an overload of other media that I'm paying for.


I'm honestly curious how many people in this area has Sirius? I know it's growing nationally, but is it happening out here as well?

Cuttslam how was the show? Was it worth it? You think there is a chance it could keep going? I would ask Dino, but he seems a little bummed on himself at the moment.
I know I would wanna listen, and will if there is another one, and I will call in, (provided I'm not working!)

I believe sxm will be dead in a few years. I can just pandora through my phone. Yeah, it's nice to listen to nfl games, NHL games but once again I'm pretty sure I can listen to radio broadcasts of NHL games for free through NHL game center. Once everyone has high speed data through phone, I see no need for satellite radio.

That being said, I used to enjoy listening to hardcore sports radio and various other sport shows on sirius when I worked in the lab. Just don't see it lasting too long.

I don't have SXM, as it's an expense I can't take on right now, but I believe Dino and Gags do a fine job of talking up Wyoming football on Friday nights.. and personally, I can't wait to meet both of the guys face to face when I make it to Laramie this fall for the Border War.

I somewhat have to chime in here because you are attacking the fan base and that isn't what you should be doing. 1 Week ago you announce the the intention of broadcasting a pre game style call in, So here we are with a 1 week time frame sure it's plenty time to listen but you actually sit here and expect that people are going to drop life for the call in show that they have to pay for......

This might sound disrespectful to you but did you actually think that posting here was going to create a national response? How many other locations are you posting in and complaining about the response right now? Facebook, Twitter Streams, other forums?

You realize how much effort MrTitleist has put into this forum to bring it up to a large fan base? This wasn't an overnight project and neither will a call in show that is time based. I think it's more pathetic you are here bitching about something you can control better but do not. I know how much work it takes to really get something rolling I've been streaming for a long time ( 10+ years ) and it's basically all I'm known for now. Now me personally I don't want the national attention so I try to keep it fairly hush hush but you on the other hand you want the national attention and you too keep it hush hush and you have it on a system that people have to pay for.

So if you want opinions of how to make this call in show relevant, i'll full of ideas because not everyone is going to pay the monthly fee to listen to the broadcast.

1. Site traffic, You have none. - http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/dinoradio.com#

As long as you have nothing on your site talking about this show that is semi easy to find then how is anyone to know about it?

2. Twitter -

@DINOCOSTA's account is protected.
Only confirmed followers have access to @DINOCOSTA's Tweets and complete profile. Click the "Follow" button to send a follow request.

You want national response but limit yourself to small crowds, Remove the lock deal with the spam and get the listeners active because they know about it or make a 2nd Twitter account for the Cowboy show and live feed it.

3. Facebook - You have it but once again it's blank.

This goes back to national spotlight, everyone has facebook and twitter, so why not live feed the questions and responses? Do something so people see the user interaction and activity and it makes them want to listen to it.

4. Record the show and make a Podcast out of it so people can listen and hear the show and then they can decide if they want to pay for it. They don't know if they want to pay for it when they can't hear it.

Look I could go on all day long but there is no need to. You need to quit attacking this small fan support site and decide if you want people to take part in your show and how to go about it. At this current point there is no reason for me to listen to the show because I know nothing about it other then word of mouth. Word of mouth travels far for bad and near for good.

No one is going to tell everyone about a great talk show that showcased the Wyoming Cowboys but everyone is going to tell everyone about a terrible one that focused on an irrelevant college.

You want national coverage and user interaction make people want to listen to the show!

I agree with WYO2DAL. I respect the fact that you are trying to bring coverage to the Pokes but if you have a problem or issue first look at what you can do to make it better before attacking people with your rants. This is a forum where we as poke fans have discussion on team issues in support of the cowboys and their fans. I really question your motives. The whole thing seems pretty strange. From what I have read you didn't go to UW and you have no tie to us. You are attacking us as a fan base for something we didn't ask for. I just don't think your attack was appropriate or warranted. Again the exposure is appreciated but I think you need to watch the attitude.

It might also help to understand that we are a small population base and as well as Wyoming football many of us have a strong tie to our local high school. So you put this show on Friday evening. Do you want us to tell the high schools to move the games to Thursday so we can listen to you?

Look I could go on all day long but there is no need to. You need to quit attacking this small fan support site and decide if you want people to take part in your show and how to go about it. At this current point there is no reason for me to listen to the show because I know nothing about it other then word of mouth. Word of mouth travels far for bad and near for good.

No one is going to tell everyone about a great talk show that showcased the Wyoming Cowboys but everyone is going to tell everyone about a terrible one that focused on an irrelevant college.

You want national coverage and user interaction make people want to listen to the show!

THIS IS EXACTLY AND 100% WHY THE MTN FAILED, DON'T FOLLOW IN THOSE STEPS!

Dino, I'm one if those callers and I don't think u should give up so soon. You are new to Wyoming and we truly welcome you but I happened upon you after reading a chat room. Gags needs to post it in the paper so that fellow UW fans know about it. We don't have the population or fan base like back East does. If people out here have Sirius XM they just don't know about it. Lots of Wyo fans will take to it once they know!!! Keep up the good work just remember Wyoming people are slow to new things, we'll get there keep it up!!!! Welcome to Wyoming takes some time getting used to. Sad performance today!!!!

You don't blame a chat room/forum... Gotta look at yourself and what you can do better. Plus Friday nights are tough, weather is still nice. I know I'm not sitting around to listen to the radio

You want respect and you crave visibility for the Pokes, and yet, when given a platform on the stage as big as has been delivered you...you fail.

Look it, I don't rely on phone calls to make my shows go, but in this case, I believe the disrespect you have shown the writer in question is beyond comprehension and shows a lack of awareness.

And I wanted to bring a national radio show to the stadium this fall?

Two phone calls for the segment doesn't come close to getting it done -- particularly if you possess a SXM account.


I somewhat have to chime in here because you are attacking the fan base and that isn't what you should be doing. 1 Week ago you announce the the intention of broadcasting a pre game style call in, So here we are with a 1 week time frame sure it's plenty time to listen but you actually sit here and expect that people are going to drop life for the call in show that they have to pay for......

This might sound disrespectful to you but did you actually think that posting here was going to create a national response? How many other locations are you posting in and complaining about the response right now? Facebook, Twitter Streams, other forums?

You realize how much effort MrTitleist has put into this forum to bring it up to a large fan base? This wasn't an overnight project and neither will a call in show that is time based. I think it's more pathetic you are here bitching about something you can control better but do not. I know how much work it takes to really get something rolling I've been streaming for a long time ( 10+ years ) and it's basically all I'm known for now. Now me personally I don't want the national attention so I try to keep it fairly hush hush but you on the other hand you want the national attention and you too keep it hush hush and you have it on a system that people have to pay for.

So if you want opinions of how to make this call in show relevant, i'll full of ideas because not everyone is going to pay the monthly fee to listen to the broadcast.

1. Site traffic, You have none. - http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/dinoradio.com#

As long as you have nothing on your site talking about this show that is semi easy to find then how is anyone to know about it?

2. Twitter -

You want national response but limit yourself to small crowds, Remove the lock deal with the spam and get the listeners active because they know about it or make a 2nd Twitter account for the Cowboy show and live feed it.

3. Facebook - You have it but once again it's blank.

This goes back to national spotlight, everyone has facebook and twitter, so why not live feed the questions and responses? Do something so people see the user interaction and activity and it makes them want to listen to it.

4. Record the show and make a Podcast out of it so people can listen and hear the show and then they can decide if they want to pay for it. They don't know if they want to pay for it when they can't hear it.

Yes, I appreciate your response, however, you wrote a bunch of nothing.

I have a national talk radio show that has exploded in the nearly 4 years it has been on, my listenership and caller activity is voluminous outside of the WYO segment.

It is during the WYO segment that the patronage is limited -- that is all I care about when posting on this subject.

SiriusXM Radio is now in 50+ million cars across the country and is the 2nd biggest subscriber based business in the country.

I'm talking WYO football on a weekly basis, if my superiors demand I drop the segment then I will have no recourse but to comply based upon the apparent non interest in the segment.

No matter what, I'm no worse for wear.
