Guess the words getting around. The short lived Roser experiment is officially dead and a replacement is being considered. I guess "The Coffee Man and Mark the Pothead" wasn't quite the genius idea it was billed as.

This is the only talk show I listen to, they get there news from the source, and they are NOT afraid to ask the right questions. So keep spreading rumors, while I keep listening. Great job guys!

First, i like listening to them. But.... Mark is the Jenel Boston of radio. Uhhhh, Uhhhh, Uhhhh & ummmm constantly. Can't pronounce names & words. My favorite though, is is when he says "Frank Uh-lies"......Mark... it's pronounced E-lie-Ass. It's Frank E-lie-Ass. Elias. Easy!

I listen to this show quite a bit. A few things drive me nuts and cause me to tune out. Number one among those is how Frank parses every word in his head before he speaks in an effort to sound intelligent. I can tell that sometimes Mark wants to shake him and tell him to just spit it out - in English. It's also very apparent that Frank is just not very up to date when it comes to the news or the culture. It happens at least once a day that something current is mentioned and he hasn't got a clue. He then looks it up on the web and quotes whatever site Google takes him to. He needs to stop trying to sound intelligent and just be himself.

The other thing is that when they interview some people, the silver-toungued County Executive for example, it's nothing but softballs.

While Mark doesn't have the well-educated delivery, he does have a good grasp of the facts that comes from actually being involved. At least with city politics. He goes to the meetings and calls it like it is it seems to me.

I believe Frank lived in a igloo, he has no clue what's going on around him. He talks to professional and elected officals like they have a 3rd grade level of intelligence. I now know why the Mohawk Valley Chamber of Commerce dumped him. No brains, no pain. Get with the program or get out! Basically he is a retart with money!

I listen to the show and wouldn't like to see it go, but I have to agree with the comments. There are some things these guys should not even mention (for example, their comments on Cyprus a couple weeks ago) or do (like broadcasting Angela Elefante last year when it was obvious that she did not know her words were going over the whole valley). But, they usually get the best guests- it's annoying that Mark usually loudly interrupts and stops them in the middle of an interesting explanation and Frank takes so long to spit out a question that it's amazing that he ever gets an answer. If they focus on the local scene, let their guests do the talking, and get rid of all the same-old chit-chat (Mark's rants, the plugs for coffee, Mark W grammar lessons, Frank's internet searches and a few other of my pet peeves) the show would be more professional.

Who's interviews? These two clowns on talk of the town? One is a parrot the other is a doofus. If that's the best radio *hands down* its time to pack it in girls.

This radio show and the guests are great. Take your pick and listen to any of these interviews.

Pat Becher and Marc Butler were two recent interviews. Learned more during these interviews than I'll ever learn on TV or in newspaper.

Listen to http://wutqfm.com

Wife and I listen every morning. Way more informative on local issues than ANY OTHER local talk radio for sure. We love the show guys!

These two have the balls to ask tough questions. They are exposing the real issues that nobody else reports. WELCOMED AND REFRESHING

This show COULD be good, but it s not! Mark sounds like a Caucasian Jenell Boston and says ugh, ugh, ah constantly. Frank is the smart one but he wastes too much time talking about hs coffee company and looking things up on the computer! He is not prepared! Their interviews are softball, kiss up to the Republican powers that be! How French can we listen o them suck up to Clauda Tenney? She comes across as an fawing babbling idiot on their show.

So, obviously we've all listened enough to form our opinions on the show. It is what it is, a show about Utica and the surrounding area. We're all not going to agree whether we like the show or not. You hae to admit, Mark is passionate about what's going on around here. I don't agree with him much and sometimes he comes off as a little immature. As he gets older, he'll mature more and see some things in.a different light. Frank doesn't talk about his coffee as much as some people say. Mark brings it up more. I think Frank asks good questions. Like I said, it's a show about what's going on around here. Take it for what it is. It is my guilty pleasure.

Guilty pleasure? really? What's pleasurable about that? Listening to them is a waste. "Houseplant & Cosell" instead of Abbot & Costello!

Lets face it in fact maybe it's time you went back to artificially pleasured yourself with something that takes "D" batteries if your threshold for thrills is that bargain basement low. If "ALDIs" did radio, they would make that show. Puhleeeze.
