Title: Windtunnel
Post by: drpep (brian) on March 29, 2005, 03:46:12 AM
First is it one word or two? I guess I should pay attention.
  Okay, so after boycotting the shows move to Sunday only I had to tune in last week because I know the show loves Carl Edwards. What is up with Dave Despain? First he goes to one night a week then I find out he has been using co-hosts on every show this year. Can't the guy handle a 2 hour show on his own? Are these hosts adding anything or taking away? I guess I would have enjoyed the Robin Miller show several weeks ago.
  Also, how much of the 2 hours is used as a Nascar infomercial? When I used to watch I got all the news in the first 5 minutes. I had to wait almost and hour to find out who won the F1 race this time.

Brian, I know that you are upset about the changes, but remember who pays the bills, if you know what I mean.

Speed Channel is for all kinds of race fans, but the emphasis on "NASCAR TV" has grown over the last year or so.

I think it is two words - Wind Tunnel.  I could be wrong but will check it out further later.

I miss the one hour shows.  I hate him having a co-host.  I think the co-host tempers the opinions of Dave.  It also cuts into the time for other guests, imo.  I used to watch every show, but now I don't care if I see it or not.  Only when someone I really like is on.  SPEED, are you reading and listening?

As far as all the news, most fans are interested in Nascar, so more of them call in or email so that puts it at top priority, I guess.   :?
