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 . . .

It is really very simple ... It is their show, so they get to create the agenda topics. I listen and I sure wouldn't want to hear them talk, every day, about KC people shooting each other.

Scott Parks is a dork.

His biggest achievement was playing clarinet in the Shawnee Mission high school band.

@1:01PM, Then don't call yourself Kansas City's show. Call yourself Johnson Counties show. There is more in the metro then JoCo. The issue with them is, they don't know anything but their suburb. And when they finally do talk about something other then their backyard their point of views lack research and nuance. It's very laughable.

Frank Fruit Bowl would be a great host.

He could talk about climbing the Rocky Mountains while blind and playing football for Villanova back in 1948.

parks's show is too silly, imho.

It's called the Dana and Parks Show. If you freaking haters don't like it then don't fucking listen to it.

See how easy it is to deal with the issue?

Sounds like some MoRage stupidity!

parks used to be s smart guy but there was obviously a corporate programming decision made to gear his show to a lower level auduence.

kansas city radio isn't very good.

in other cities, there's more variety and consistency in format.

Bring in Keitzman so he can piss off all the KU sports fans and bootlickers by being willing to point out that KU was cheating in basketball recruiting. The NCAA proved him right. All these fans decided to overblow his analysis of Andy Reid's lack of success with some athletes and their off-the-field actions to a national scale. That's the only reason he was let go.

Dana sounds like the drunk Aunt everyone tries to ignore at family reunions.

@1:35PM, very few people are listing to it. So why is it still on the air?

Dana and Parks have lower ratings then Shanin and Parks. Which got lower ratings then Jerry Agar. Agar did however get better ratings then Russ Johnson.

Agar was the peak of the station ratings when they got rid of sports talk.

I haven't listened in a while myself. Got tired of all the mindless game shows, Parks trying to be his BFF Johnny Dare and Dana Wright trying to act like a real journalist. Instead of a former beauty who got too fat and old to be on TV.

Last time I heard the show Parks was going on for months talking about moving to Shawnee with his GF JBJB. Then after the weekend of the movie, he never talked about it. Still said he lived in Roeland Park and never mentioned her again.

Dana is the worst on air radio personality ever, she’s the whole reason it’s gone south, she’s so sensitive to everything, she can’t handle anything negative against her thoughts or views so the program somehow shifted to her way of thinking and it’s killed the show and Scott parks career. clearly she’s not all there in the head. her or her husband kris have something on somebody because there’s no way in hell this show should still be going.

Grip Madlock said...

Now he has his gf Kelly,want to know why I know her name?
Because he mentions it 527 times a fucking week

Anonymous said...

^How are you certain "Kelly" is not a boyfriend?

Anonymous said...

Soren Petro is married to a KU grad. If he starts saying bad stuff about KU sports, he has to sleep on the couch. That's no fun. He's one of too many KU sports bootlickers on KC sports radio. Don't rock the boat or you'll pay the price. Just ask Kietzman. His replacement at 810 has been worse than lame.

we need a show about kansas city, with a more news-oriented slant.

kraske could put together something at a higher level and more informative.

Anonymous said...

@1:52PM...Dana is a former beauty queen who left for radio because she got too old and fat to be on TV. She went to KMBZ before she was escorted out of Channel 5, much like Karen Fuller was at the same station. She's brain dead. And Parks had to dumb down the show to cater to her because she can't form a nuanced thought.

If Parks listened to one hour of his show with Shanin and then one hour with his show with Wright, it would as different as night and day. Parks would cry realizing how far he has fallin.

It really doesn't make any difference if they're not talking about the horrendous murder of a four year-old in his own bed.
All the usual suspects are talking endlessly about it.
And as usual, actually DOING NOTHING serious about addressing the fact that over 90% of KCMO homicide victims and perpetrators are black and as this level of violence is allowed to go on year after year it's inevitable that innocent victims like this will suffer.
What's needed is a whole lot LESS talking by everyone and a whole lot more DOING.

Listening to Sports Radio in Kansas City is as exciting as listening to your Grandmother talk about her recent trip to the doctors office and what medications they prescribed her.

Danny Clinkscale and Jack Harry Ass were a good combination on the Chiefs post-game shows.

kansas city needs a show about kansas city and what's happening now.

there must be a personable, knowledgeable black host in our town.

about time we could hear what's really going on.

You're right: The Parks show isn't very in tune with what's happening.

I’m still trying to get my head around the phrase “Dana is a former beauty queen...”

I just don’t see it.

Braking News.....I sent a text to Dana and Parks today to see if they will address the concerns of many listeners not in Johnson County about their show.

I got a text back that said, "No. Tony's a nobody."

I have a feeling there is going to be a war between Tony and Dana and Parks soon. Tony wins.

Everyone with a brain knows that KCMO is a shithole where young children are killed by gunfire. Why would people in Johnson county want to hear about the latest child killed ? Or the latest adult ? It's a shithole ! How much thought should they devote to crime and dysfunction that is without end ? People with actual lives have little patience with Third-World histrionics.

They didn't talk about the murder!!! Boo Hoo!! Whaaa!!!! I still listen to talk radio!!! WWhaaaa!!!! Fucking simps. The lot of ya. Get the Rona and die. You people serve no purpose. None.

But @2:49...the four-year-old boy couldn't breathe. So why is his death mean so less to you then a drug addict who pistol whipped a pregnant woman?

Anonymous said...

To the previous poster.....you did not ask me if I would talk about something outside of Johnson County. You asked me if I would discuss what Tony wrote about us on his stupid website. I wrote back, "No, Tony is a nobody". Please try to be remotely accurate. And Don't lie.

Sincerely,

Scott Parks.

So Parks, why did you and Dana block Tony on Twitter? And can you address the readers concerns? Or are you too busy with Jam or No Jam?

generally, conflicts between media personalities are semi-staged to get publicity for both parties.

wouldn't be surprised if this whole story were planted.

parks wants to be as famous as tkc.

Scott Parks a nobody calling someone else a nobody. Now that's priceless.

I see a McDonalds or maybe a Wahtabuger headset on Parks in the future as he asks that hard hitting question, "Would you like a drink with that burger and fries?"

Cliff notes version.

TKC and his readers called out Dana and Parks for not only having a JoCo centric show, but also a bad one.

Many TKC commenters confirmed the posters qualm. Many jokes at Dana and Parks expense.

Scott Parks after getting a text about the post tries to come on TKC to save face.

Parks called TKC a stupid website and Tony a nobody.

Dana and Parks still have a horrible show and only talk about JoCo.

Dana and Parks will never acknowledge the concerns of the post.

Parks and the lady are like the people next door in JoCo drinking beer on the patio.

There's just not enough substantive content.

There are a lot of serious things going on in Kansas City and they should be the subject of the show.

Dana is a flaming libtard and she can’t handle anything remotely upsetting to her perfect little dream world where everything is rainbows and unicorns.

If she was a beauty queen they must’ve been giving out participation trophy’s that day.

It’s possible though, she does meet the bare minimum level of intelligence required to be in a pageant, barely.

- Scott Parks goes to the Caribbean like a week before the WFH order and then goes all self righteous on COVID.
- Dana has more time off than a firefighter in a town of population 8.
- Parks tries too hard to contrive his position. Obviously not genuine.
- I think Dana is a better draw because I think she is genuine, and she is funny.
- Jayme Monacelli and Grayson are TERRIBLE. They may as well talk about their favorite color. Ill prepared, no chemistry. Just awkward horrible radio.
- I think Kevin Kietzman and Dana would be good radio...

If Parks mentions his nurse girlfriend one more time people's heads will explode and Dana actually is that dumb. I know talk show hosts are arrogant and self-serving by nature but these two are the WORST and aren't even funny or witty. Why don't we defund them???

I asked Scott a while ago about the whole home in Shawnee with JBJB thing. I pretty much called him out, said his drinking lead to the brake up, ect. He responds by saying, "You have no idea what your talking about. And fuck you."

Those drunkin twitter rants of Parks were great. Seeing one man lose it thanks to his madness and constant drinking.

Dana and Parks changed formats several years ago. They are deliberately non-political because they got tired of all the threats they were both receiving about their political opinions. Now even that isn't good enough. People are threatening them because they are specifically NOT political. Can't win this one.

Anonymous said...

@1:26...No one is threatening them. People are calling the show out for being a dumb down version of a AM talk show. Parks wants to be Johnny Dare, thats why you have him blasting 80's to early '90s hair metal every chance he can. Dana Wright is not smart enough for the job. She's a "Karen." That's why they dumbed down the show.

As for the, "they got tired of all the threats they were both receiving about their political opinions." If you cant take the heat get out of the kitchen. If you don't want to be political get out of the talk format and do a morning zoo show. Johnathan Wier did. He's in a country station in Boston now doing radio with a female host. He got tired of political talk and just wants to play music and tell bad jokes.

Parks can do a show where he and Dana and tell Boomer Humor, blasting hair metal all day.
