I heard Malmberg last night he had a great show. I hope they keep Dave Thompson on the noon to 2pm shift. They don't need to look for anyone else.
Good Hire.

I'm still very angry with KSTP for firing one of the best voices on the air, Mischke! That's why Dave will be filling in "for a while", cuz the station didn't have the guts to keep interesting but occasionally nonconformist radio on the air.

Hope it is not permanent. All this guy likes to do is talk about his dam plane.

I'd like to support a local business like KSTP, but they've made it hard what with firing Mischke when he's got better ratings in his timeslot than quite a few other KSTPers do.

I'm always happy to listen to Al, especially if I don't have to wait until the middle of the night to do so. Hey Al, how about getting the Minnesota Rollergirls on-air again? They're always fun!

This seems like a good move. KSTP will be a great medium for Mr. Malmberg's extreme right-wing political rants. Good luck.

Putting Al on the payroll is about the only thing KSTP has done right in the last 3 months. Hometown boy for a hometown station.

Everyone I know has stopped listening in the morning since they split up willy and Jay. I hope they go broke and then come to their senses and bring them both back.

Reuse's got to go..

I agree, Pat R was good on his sports segments but four hours of this guy who is clueless politically is too much.

good for you, Al Malmberg. You are what radio at WCCO was for many years and is no more. When people ask, "where have all the real personalities gone?" You can point to Al. He doesn't depend on listeners to create a show or controversy. I hope you get a full-time job.

KSTP lost ground when Jason Lewis left. The few times I listened to Miske he seemed like an arogant tool who blathered on and on about nothing. I also liked Paul Brandt but he got bumped to cover sports. KTLK is now my station of choice, although I will sill come back for Garage Logic.

Mischke was a class act. I miss him and havent listened to 1500 KSTP since he was taken off the air.

I hope they bring Mischke back!
