My dislike of being yelled at in the morning has been well documented in this space. With Doug and Wolf as the only local morning sports-talk radio hosts available to me it seemed like I’d be stuck forever getting screamed at in stereo by a pair of complete idiots.
Thus imagine my surprise this morning when I’m flipping through the dial. Oh, there’s Doug and Wolf screaming about Anquan Boldin on KTAR, Dan Patrick somehow mugging through the radio on 910, and on 1060…Arnie Spanier? I recall Spanier from his national radio days on Sporting News radio. For those of you unfamilar with Spanier, read his wikipedia. Anything jump out at you?
His nickname is the Stinkin Genious and is well known for his gravelly voice, yelling and love of the Mets and Arizona (college).
That’s right. Yelling. So if there were even a remote uncertainty as to what Spanier was hired to do for 1060, such debate can now end. He’s here to yell, so brace yourselves Valley radio fans. I suppose the worst case scenario is I can now choose to get yelled at in the morning by just ONE complete idiot. Little victories.
