TKC READER: DANA & PARKS DISREGARD IMPORTANT KANSAS CITY ISSUES!!!



Important note from our blog community tonight about the decline of local radio talk and how KCMO listeners feel neglected.

To be fair, Dana & Parks are "all about that JoCo life" and have a hard time seeing outside their bubble. Fact is, most people in KCMO can't really relate to their banter that closely mimics the dude at the office everybody works diligently to avoid.

Nevertheless, here's an apt bit of criticism, insight and analysis from our blog community . . .

Checkit:

TKC READER: Dana & Parks Show Is Second Rate

TKC, as a Jackson County homeowner I like many was floored by their latest assessment and property tax hike. Because this is a big story I flipped on Dana and Parks this week, as well as your blog to see what other people thought about this issue. To my amazement as of Wednesday night, the No.1 show on the No.1, talk radio station has yet to talk about this issue. Why? You would think a show that prides itself on being a local show would talk about an issue affecting so many people in the Kansas City area. But not once have I heard anything from Dana and Parks about the tax hikes. But in the three days I've listened I heard plenty of bad boomer humor. I've heard plenty mindless gameshows they do. I heard plenty of times Dana raising her voice after every other word. And I heard plenty of times Parks failing at being clever.

I don't get it. Why not talk about this very important issue. This just proves to me that Dana and Parks have turned into second rate hacks that need to be fired.

That's a stretch. I guess if only a few dozen people are listening to radio.

Maybe they did talk about it and the listener missed the day that they did? I dunno, I have satellite radio and spend my time in the car listening to Patriot XM, or the comedy stations.

Tony and his kool aid drinking internet troll disciples don’t care about KC issues either. Nor do they care about the people, places or cultural institutions of KC.
This is evident in the insults, disparagement, name-calling, death threats directed at the everyday ordinary people of KC and the places and cultural things they engage in.

Jackson Countians got what they voted for.

In other news, the sun rises in the East and sets in the west.

I will beat Tony to this one using his language and attitude:

Blues win Stanley Cup

Tony:
Sports industrial complex.....
Meanwhile KC still doesnt have an NHL team they got promised, phony downtown renaissance cowtown disgrace
Ghetto crime infested St Louis and their fanboys celebrate fluke win while crime and murder spin out of control
Still #1 most dangerous city
Meaningless fluke just like Royals in 2015
No one except white suburbanite denizens watch hockey anyway



An abundance of jokes, quick with opinions, full of stories.....a messenger for the cowtown and surrounds .... said...

10:08 -- Ha! That Stays Losing Blews winning the Stanley Cup snark ya did there rates almost as funny as the clever cuts and outright smackdowns that Tony posts. Almost.

I have to agree with this comment from a listener. I will say that I really like Dana because she has some degree of talent and represents what a lot of women think in KC. But I was also surprised that they didn't talk about the tax issue.

Dana and Parks.....I listen on ocassion just to get the pulse on how Intercom sucks as much as it does and I find Dana and Parks to be the top radio retards Kansas city airwaves have to offer. their commentary and their thought process reminds me of the Kansas City Missouri Fire department, both are 2 seperate entities, but the retardation within a thought process is the same. Libereral cocksuckers in other words!!

^^^ Calm down there sparky, did you forget where you live.

The show is only reflecting the two biggest populations in Kansas City. Johnson County voted for Democrats over Republicans and KC Mo has always been a stronghold for Democrats since Truman was in office. Just because you're pissed in your trailer does not mean your right. Go listen to Am rural talk. You're listening is NOT appreciated.

Weir has a much better show, he jokes all the time but still manages to cover some serious issues.

Dana & Parks aren't going anywhere, the criticism from this blog and its readers is actually beneficial considering this is such a toxic place. KC doesn't need more angry people on the airwaves. Dana & Parks does a night job of creating a balanced show.

^^^ Their raitings aren't what they used to be. A lot of the criticism here is highly subjective but if you look at the numbers like those of us in the business do, you can see their market share slipping. That's the only thing they really get sensitive about.

Dana is the worst “personality” to ever be in the game, she’s the dumbest person next to the negro on the face of the earth.

Nah. You broad-brush a pretty diverse crowd that are some of the only real critics of the corrupt nonsense in kc.

Try harder, Scotty.

Dana always has sympathy for negative incidents affecting minorities yet she lives in Leawood which is the most segregated area of KC. Plus, she said she forbids her ex husband from taking their kids to the Ruskin area where he owns rental property which is a predominately African American community and she won't even let her daughter go to the Plaza since African American kids started hanging out there.

It will be interesting to see if Dana and Parks talk about this topic today since the TKC community has put them on blast.

My guess is it's the first subject of their show today. Either that or more bad boomer humor and of course countless hours of their game shows.

This show has sucked since Trump became president. It used to be awesome. Although they try to remain apolitical, Parks used to be conservative and Dana was a lib. Parks has TDS and now its a lefty lib show. Libs aren't funny. They are humorless fucks.

You know what else sucks...Entercom moved off TuneIn and to Radio.com. My car radio sucks so I listen to internet radio in my car. Radio.com blows but if D&P were good I would struggle through it to listen. Since they moved left and became stupid - I listen to other things.

There are a lot of conservatives in the KC metro. This was our only local radio outlet to share the right (in both senses of the word) view. Now its changed.

Their audience is largely people with jobs stuck in cars sitting in construction-everlasting traffic heading to their JOCO refuge. They want to laugh. They don't need something else to be pissed about. BZ gave up the news talk 8 or 9 years ago because it's boring and it doesn't change anything. I think D&P will end when Dana wants it to end. I will say, Mix Tape is stupid. The other games are fine. The show is suffering without Rod.

They suck. Their producer sucks too.

Darla Jay. Now, she wasn't afraid to talk about the issues. But... being a conservative, straight, Christian woman, she was fired.

Censorship (aka "hate speech") is the first step to a totalitarian government.

And... as far as tax hikes go, you ain't seen nothing yet. When the next communist Mayor gets elected, taxes will go to the moon!

And yet you continue to listen....hmmmm

This show went downhill once Trump became president and he got TDS. So glad it went so well they will loose their jobs. Never will listen to them again. They have lost it.

Ya know what should be really scary-ultra conservative right wing is the closest to truth that is anywhere. And it ain't on the radio! I'm educated--I know the high-end cocktail party rhetoric that gets you laid with the sluts that voted for Obama--I also know the low end rhetoric that is closer to truth and what will produce a better society, but will get me thrown out, shot, disbarred, and go home without having caught an STD. Ever see "American Psycho" ? Remember that sick fuck had a cute answer for the war that was going on in Africa. It just sounded wise and set the girls on fire. That's all anyone is trying to do. Keep their job, sound educated, get laid, etc.
