    What happened to the news? It is sounding like a conservative talk show without the talk. We may have to change stations in the morning to get local news. Do not like it at all. We would tune into a talk show if we wanted to hear the rants.

    Your news is not news it is conservative talk show commentary and often silly banter.
    Cant we just get the news?

      @Greg Rosa I listen most mornings and hear news. If you're listening after 9a.m., guess what? That IS a conservative talk show! Before 9, it's mostly news and some interviews, editorials and some "banter." Maybe if you want boring news you should be listening to NPR, or something. You can pretend that liberal news doesn't have editorials, commentary or "banter," if you like. KSRO's new programming is WAY more entertaining than it was before.

    On July 16, morning show rant was discussing best hamburger in Sonoma County. My submission is the Santa Rosa Junior College Culinary Café, open Wed-Friday:

    Grilled Shone Farm grass-fed hamburger with bacon, gruyere and tomato cornichon aioli on a soft roll ~ 8.50

    We have listened to KSRO at 6:30 a m since 1969 when we moved here. We are happy with your show.
    But . . . I think that if you would look at the lifetime salaries of our legislators you could stop complaining about teachers. As a retired teacher in California I have to pay my own medical and I can not collect the full Social Security I paid into. That is 'double dipping'. We even pay into our own retirment.
    Teachers and military averages are far below legislators, sad.

    Felt the Earth Quake in the Roseland District at 3:30 Am. House phone out, and clocks have to be reset.

    I just wanted to express my listening enjoyment now that Melanie Morgan is on vacation. Hopefully she is interviewing for another job because AND won't be returning because she has forced me to discontinue listening to the KSRO morning show. Her agenda is far too right wing conservative. Just stick to the facts ma'm, report the news and keep your ultra conservative views for your tea party friends.

      @Kevin Powers You sensitive liberals sure are touchy. It seems that you will only tolerate the uniform propaganda of the politico-media complex. Even Melanie's small barbs and short satires - professionally executed - disturb your ideological equilibrium. I am delighted that she is back on radio, and I listen in the hope that the station management will allow her more freedom to display her considerable talents. You Go Girl! And don't let the illegitimate male offspring of female curs get you down.

      @Kevin Powers I agree with Kevin. I have been an early-morning KSRO listener for decades. "Morning drive time" news, traffic, and weather, with no particular political bias -- until the arrival of Melanie Morgan. Dennis Miller and Jerry Doyle provide plenty of Obama- and liberal-bashing for KSRO listeners who enjoy that. To KSRO management: Please tell MM to tone down the right-wing comments.

    They should add a contact link, for anyone who has a news question. And one for anyone who has a scheduling question. But what happened to "On The House"? I listened to it every Saturday morning, until it vanished. And the last time I checked the station's program schedule, "On The House" was still listed among the programs, and for Saturday at that.

    Were the little green yard people stollen, by taller green people, with pointy ears?

    What happened to Eloy Camacho ? Is he on an assignment somewhere?
    1. Tony Landucci posted on 10/30/2014 12:57 PM
      @greg miksis Hi Greg,
      Eloy is still around in the SMG cluster but is working behind the scenes. Thanks for listening!

    Back with D.W.Page and Kurtis Kim I heard amusing weekday morning reports by Brent Seltzer on KSRO. Before that, I didn't know of him.
    I was surprised by how hip and edgy his humorous reports were, a tad incongruous with the rest of the morning news.
    Agree or disagree with Brent Seltzer, his fast-paced minute with sound effects WAS interesting and entertaining.
    So where is Brent Seltzer now, ...at large??
    I see we have some sort-of humor in the morning with _________ but I think he falls short of Brent S.'s inimitable style.
    Is it possible to have a return of Brent Seltzer, ...or is he just too hip and edgy for KSRO??

    PS: I also miss the local High School sports reporting on Monday and Friday morning.

    Post Election Thoughts-Nov 5, 2014

    The Republican landslide may represent public recognition that the constitution must be protected and enforced. Not that it shouldn’t evolve in some specifics; the general principals must be respected.

    There are some Democratic politicians who fail in the above precept. They should be excoriated in the media, as should the media itself.

    But to further alienate voting democrats by recounting all their naïveté is not enlightened.

    We are all Americans, and our common interests should be emphasized, not our differences. My high hopes for a black president to unite the country’s various ethnic groups has not only been disappointed, but overrun by increased tensions.

    We understand that global warming, for example, is a hoax. Instead of furthering the divide, we must gently but persistently, affirm the truth. This idea applies in every area: socialism doesn’t work, IRS and EPA are out of control,

    It will not further the country to speak of evil in corrupt politicians, because the voters identify with those they vote for.

    We are ALL Americans. We need to unite as one people, yes with differing heritages, but all with one common country, one common interest in health, prosperity, and peace.

    Melanie Morgan has been the heart and soul of whichever program has been lucky enough to have her. She is a real patriot who not only "talks the talk", but also "walks the walk". She was the primary force behind the successful recall of a sitting CA governor, and a founder or co-founder of several troop-supporting non-profit organizations. I rarely listened to KSRO until Melanie came on board, and she and Tony do a great job on the morning show. Yes, sometimes they get a little silly, but I don't notice anyone complaining about the same characteristic of the afternoon drive program.

    Mel and Tony do a terrific double-team on their interviews, and I only wish they had more than a few minutes with their guests. Cutting back on repetitive plugs for the station, and on redundant traffic and weather would free up some much-needed time.

    As for the Melanie haters out there, would it be possible for you to be satisfied with the smarmy, left-leaning afternoon show, and the fact that over two-thirds of this area votes democrat, meaning that virtually every public office is filled by people who like to feel good by ignoring the lessons of history, along with dismissing the Constitution while they make demonstrably stupid political decisions?

    If a little rational thinking makes the morning program a "conservative talk show," then please, let's have more.

      @Capt Phil My reply is I luv the perky Mel and Tony you

      day! Keep it going.

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I'm amazed at the number of people who let atrocious grammatical errors pass on to the airwaves, for example, the copy writers, the actors who do the reading, the sound man who listens to them, the client who hears the final ads, etc. Is it that the first one to correct someone's English gets fired?? Who is responsible at the station for so many grammatically flawed final products?

    And today the morning news reader clearly only READS rather than THINKS when he read and pronounced "Marine Corps" phonetically by clearly saying "Marine CORPSE". My bet is, nobody corrected him after he did it.

    Nobody at Sonoma Media seems to know that "culinary" is not pronounced "colonary" especially when they are trying to sell a restaurant to a literate public. The same foreign-language client was also ripped off when another of their ads had multiple English grammar errors that any qualified eighth-grade grammar teacher would catch instantly and circle with a red pencil. My advice is to pay such a teacher to comment on your product regularly BEFORE first airing it.

    You will get more business advertising when your people prove their literacy at some stage along the path from idea to radio speaker sound waves. It is a news story in itself that so many gross errors can get by such a long line of people involved in the success of the endeavor and who actually count on it for revenue! The whole chain of so-called professionals lets these go by, even though it only takes one weak link in any chain to fail. When stupid errors make it to the listeners' ears, there apparently is no chain, just a handful of weak links who really need to act together and take responsibility for the product.

    Best wishes from a Disgusted Listener

    To KSRO management: Before your morning show anchor, Melanie Morgan, goes any further spreading misinformation about potential Sharia Law in the United States (January 12, "Prepare for potential Sharia Law problems now"; January 9: "Surprised terrorists didn't attack France sooner") please read Snopes.com's analysis of the rumors surrounding supposed Muslim "no go" zones. The rumors are false.

    Who is this E Curtis person? and who gives a darn about his opinion, he's absolutely pointless, oh maybe he's thrown in the show to fill up space. He should be taken off so you can have more interview time with guests!
