Default Denver Radio

What is a good radio alternative to 104.3 The Fan? I've started listening at work over the internet and 104.3 was what came up on my search but if I have to listen to that damn DMac for one more day I may jam a pen in my ears.

Any good alternatives that talk Broncos all day?

102.3 beats hell out of the fan during drivetime. Dbag is the worst guy on radio.

No station talks Broncos all day.

I listen online as well.

Certain local shows on 102.3 are pretty good, my favorite is CJ & Kreckman. It was a better station before it changed to ESPN.

Just started listening to Mile High Sports 93.7. They are not quite as structured but seem to take a lot more listeners calls than the others. They seem to be getting better everyday.

I can't stand Scott Hastings on 104.3. He's like an NBA version of John Madden. Except Madden stuck to his own sport. Picture Madden having a radio show talking about women's softball. That's what I get out of Hastings.

I usually listen to 102.3 ESPN on my morning drive downtown. If the radio is on at all during work, it's KVJZ 89.3, or 88.1 KVOD - but those are a Jazz and a Classical station, though.

I know that doesn't help... but I don't mind 102.3 ESPN radio on the drive up Santa Fe (sometimes Broadway if I'm in the mood).

102.3 ain't band, IMO.

Does 102.3 have an app to listen to if you don't live in CO? I can't find a way

When I've got a minute, I'll watch him on Golf on Altitude. Nice tips, beautiful courses - all of them in the Rocky Mountain region.

850 KOA is almost always talking Broncos this time of year. Dave Logan is the host afterall.

It's ESPN, so there is likely a local affiliate, but you wont get the Denver analysis.

Try the iHeartRadio app - I'm not sure if it's on there, but it probably is. You can get KOA and Broncos games on iHeartRadio - that's how I rolled when I was in college and would be running late on the light rail on the way to games from DU.

850 KOA could have been called the "Tebow Station" from October last year through February this year.

I like the Fan and Dmac and Al. I worked with Dmac back in the day, and he's the perfect foil for Big Al.

Took 102.3 out of my presets. Just couldn't do it.

I like Dmac and Al's personalities, but I really am sick of the outrageous stuff that they say. Al's claim that Chad Johnson is a better receiver than Decker and DT at this point in his career is just one example. He has no idea what he's talking about when talking about skill positions in the NFL. He's also extremely close minded to other viewpoints.

I'm also sick of the constant Tebow, Moreno, and Ayers Bashing. I understand that they haven't done a ton, but after awhile it gets really old. And it really feels like they're taking a **** on them just to be mean spirited. Tebow isn't even on the team anymore, so I'm sick of that discussion.

I'm a way bigger fan of Scott Hastings and Drew Goodman.

I will say that most of the interviews done however are pretty good.

Only reason I won't listen to 102.3 is because I hate Les Shapiro. He's a complete a-hole and mean spirited. He also isn't as smart as he thinks he is.

93.7FM / 1510AM can be good at times as well.

I listen to them all, I just surf around and find the station that's on a topic that I'm interested in. I usually end up at 104.3 or KOA (especially during football season). I don't think D-Mac is that bad. Probably the ones I don't care for are Irv Brown and Joe Williams (Are they even still on?).

I can't stand 1510 or 102.3 ESPN. Evans and Klatt and The Drive w/ Big Al and DMAC are the only shows I listen to.

DMAC is a pretty cool guy, he doesn't have the best personal takes but he does seem to know how the Broncos feel about the players.

I'm in the same boat. 102.3 is terrible.

I'm sick of the fan too, especially Klatt.

1510 for me for now on, Thanks for the tip.

Al is good for old stories and a player's perspective but he is wrong on so many things all of the time.
