TKC MUST READ!!! SALTY BLOGGY REVIEW: DANA & PARKS FAIL KANSAS CITY WITH GOLDEN GHETTO BOOMER HUMOR!!!
The readers of our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY are plugged into the local discourse more than ANYBODY else . . . TKC readers are some of the most media savvy skeptics in the metro.
And so . . .
KICK-ASS TKC READER REVIEW CALLS OUT DANA & PARKS FOR IGNORING CRITICAL KANSAS CITY ISSUES!!!
For what it's worth, a few months ago both Dana & Parks blocked TKC via social media (no big loss) when we noted they were next on the chopping block following a BZ house cleaning. And so, we respect their fighting spirit in the midst of a downward spiral for terrestrial radio. Moreover, given an "evolving" landscape in local media, we still have doubts about the future for their idle chatter.
Here's the word . . .
"TKC, I emailed you before about my frustrations with the Dana and Parks. As you know on Monday morning a four-year-old boy was killed in his bed sleeping. Giving Dana and Parks one last shot I checked out the KMBZ website to see if they ever talked about it. And disappointingly they haven't. Not one sentence of the horrible death.
"Pete Mundo talked about the tragedy. Pete spent a large amount of time on his show discussing the details of the horrible crime. But Dana and Parks couldn't be bothered. I guess "Jam or No Jam" was too important.
"My biggest frustration with their show is that unless it happens in Johnson County Dana and Parks won't talk about it. It took you calling them out for them to finally talk about the Jackson County tax assessment hike. They had to be dragged kicking and screaming to talk about the SAVE THE PASEO vote, no matter how many national headlines it got. They have largely ignored the rise of violent crime and murder in the metro.
"My question to the KMBZ program director is: If you're not from JoCo why should you listen to their show? They obviously don't care about your area of town whether you live in Blue Springs, WyCo or North Kansas City.
"Maybe Pete Mundo will finally pull the trigger and go head to head with Dana and Parks. Or hire Kevin Keitzmen for the 2-6 slot. It would be nice because people who are not from JoCo need a show that will talk about their area because they know Dana and Parks won't."
You decide . . .
