A bitter sweet farewell to long time South Stands Denver guest and soon to be ex-Denver Post columist Benjamin Hochman (@hochman). 

 

We talk about what's in store for Ben as he moves back to St. Louis to be a columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. How he's handling having to be impartial as he covers his favorite team, and what he'll miss about Denver.

 

We talk a lot about NWA, the hat faux pas and the group's impact on society. Seriously. Good stuff and we tie it in to the racially troubled area Hochman is moving to.

 

We pester Hochman to tell us his favorite things and least favorite things about Denver, his favorite athletes to cover and what it's like to root for and now cover a baseball team that has a chance to go all the way, every year.

 

And we do get some good Broncos talk in at the end.

 

We'll miss Hochman and wish him the best. Thanks for coming in all these years.

Media

"The Brandon Spano Network is now “Broad Spectrum News” (because it’s less douchey)"

We finally corner Denver Post Rockies beat writer Nick Groke (@NickGroke) and make him sit in the hot studio for a great show.

We talk Rockies, but focus on Coors Field and its affect on Denver's development into the hot spot it is today.

KBUD is covered. As is why there aren't any more Arby's pint glasses honoring our local sports teams. Colin asks John and Nick about beards for some reason.

Demaryius is talked to in depth and we discuss how much athletes are paid and the misconceptions fans have about it. 

We finish it up with some questions for Nick about the Rockies broadcasters and then we nerd out on some Denver music stuff including the Warlock Pinchers. Check out Nick in the Denver Post as he covers YOUR Colorado Rockies.

South Stands Denver Fancast Show 209

Written by

A great return to form for the South Stands Denver fancast and in a new and improved studio!

We get right back into it complaining about Captain Bronco and even bring the Captain on to defend himself later in the show. Some old favorites reappear like the Horn of Plenty and Preppy Summer.

We talk Women's World Cup, the Nuggets and the woeful Rockies.

Colin details his fall at Coors Field and there's a poop story along with it.

Welcome back, we're thrilled you've joined us.

"As disconcerting as it was for listeners to find out that the station had disappeared it was even more rattling to the various hosts who were not notified of the impending change until yesterday morning - after 94.1 had already switched formats - via email."

We're as rusty as a Tin Man in this horrific Colorado spring, but we managed to get a show in with the fantastic James Hernandez of 5280 Shirt Shop (@5280shirtshop).

We talk all kinds of Rockies, but we go in on Les Shapiro and his recent rant on lowly bloggers and spend a considerable amount of time dissecting why Root Sports sucks so bad.

There's a Tweep of the Week, a Raider or Juggalo and some sporadic NFL talk in between creaking bones that is our first show back in awhile. It gets better.

Thanks to James, our original sponsor and a true Denver sports fan for kicking off the summer season of the South Stands Denver Fancast.

Traditional media is just about finished with former television and former radio host Les Shapiro but that doesn't mean he's ready to accept being a glorified blogger.
