Radio ramblings

– The true test will be what we see in April, the first month not just for the baseball season but also for 95.7′s new lineup.

– Damon Bruce made inroads with the A’s crowd last week with his lengthy interview with Oakland mayor Jean Quan. I didn’t catch a lot of the interview, but what I heard was pretty interesting and Bruce received compliments from @newballpark and Mark Purdy, among others.

– Ted Ramey has been in Bruce’s spot on 1050 for several weeks, which means the amount of Sharks talk on Bay Area radio has probably more than tripled compared to previous levels.

– I’m hearing the plan is for Eric Byrnes to start hosting with Tom Tolbert on a semi-frequent basis (it is baseball season, after all), but there are still some contract issues to iron out.

– Someone in the industry who I trust recently told me that Guy Haberman is a rising media star, to the point where he could be the region’s next Greg Papa.

– The 49ers have been pushing “Teddy Football” as Ted Robinson’s new nickname for a while. “Teddy Tennis” would probably be more accurate, but ever since KNBR fired Ralph Barbieri the local stations haven’t served up much tennis talk.

– I haven’t heard many people give their opinions on Troy Clardy, who’s been handling A’s pre/post for The Game. From what I hear, he knows the Athletics inside and out and is a very careful enunciator.

– Jim Barnett update: according to Sean Deveney of the Sporting News, the Warriors are “still looking for a new full-time, long-term analyst, but Barnett will do some home television games and some radio alongside Tim Roye next season.”
