ANOTHER "On the Cheap" issue with BOTH Tucson sports stations is the consistently terrible operation of their automated switching systems.
Both 1290 and 1490 suffer EPIDEMICS of crosstalk (two sources airing at once),.
It's usually local ads/promos/traffic reports airing over network feeds and then punctuated by "dead air" caused by local inserts having already aired where they weren't supposed to.
The fact that radio outlet owners happily put their stations on"autopilot" with nobody on site to correct these programming errors, and that the FCC now even ALLOWS such a practice, is insulting to the listening audience.
Sure you can if you have a DVR and a computer. Listen to the game on the Tuned In app. It's about a minute or so delayed. Bring up the game on the DVR and pause it until it catches up with the Tuned In feed. Perfectly synced.
You can't sych a radio feed with a satellite or cable feed. Only if both feed are over the air does it work.
If there were some way to sync the two feeds, I would do the same. When the radio feed is 60 seconds ahead of theTV, that drives me crazy.
"...But what was missing?..."
What RADIO, then, was I listening to when I couldn't WATCH the games on DirecTV? Seems to be there was the usual outstanding IMG crew (Brian Jefferies, etc) doing what they do best, on both 1290 AM AND on 107.5 FM.
I'll be watching today on TNT..but listening to the IMG radio feed.
GO CATS! Bear down!!!
