"As disconcerting as it was for listeners to find out that the station had disappeared it was even more rattling to the various hosts who were not notified of the impending change until yesterday morning - after 94.1 had already switched formats - via email."

We're as rusty as a Tin Man in this horrific Colorado spring, but we managed to get a show in with the fantastic James Hernandez of 5280 Shirt Shop (@5280shirtshop).

We talk all kinds of Rockies, but we go in on Les Shapiro and his recent rant on lowly bloggers and spend a considerable amount of time dissecting why Root Sports sucks so bad.

There's a Tweep of the Week, a Raider or Juggalo and some sporadic NFL talk in between creaking bones that is our first show back in awhile. It gets better.

Thanks to James, our original sponsor and a true Denver sports fan for kicking off the summer season of the South Stands Denver Fancast.

Media

Traditional media is just about finished with former television and former radio host Les Shapiro but that doesn't mean he's ready to accept being a glorified blogger.

Video: Shane Ray devours twelve QBs

Written by

Your newest Denver Bronco is defensive end Shane Ray out of Mizzou who set the school's single season sack record last season by devouring QBs. Here are his twelve sacks from last season. Opponents should be very very afraid.

Media

Lots of folks were surprised when the Broncos traded up to snag Shane Ray with the 23rd pick but Colin Daniels wasn't. He predicted that they would do precisely that Thursday evening on the Renknowitall program on Mile High Sports. He and Renaud discussed several other topics as well including Cinco De Mayo, the big fight and hipsters. But Renaud wouldn't let a certain topic come up. This is a fun 15 minute segment from the show.

Manning sounds bent on overstaying his welcome

Written by

Broncos fans seem content to grant Peyton Manning one final run in 2015 but is sounds like the old man is bent on overstaying his welcome.

My name is John and I'm a DFS addict

"Like someone who has only eaten Salisbury steak their whole life, and then being introduced to prime rib, the second I stuck my fork into DFS, I realized what I was missing."

"After resting starters on Sunday, including Wilson Chandler, the Nuggets have announced that tonight against the Grizzlies they will be allowing Ty Lawson, Danillo Gallinari and Kenneth Faried all to rest. Rest? For what? This team isn't going to make the playoffs."

"It's the strangest kind of transition period and it's impossible to say how things may shake out once the 2015 Denver Broncos take the field."

My son is at it again. The Drew Litton of Photoshop brings you the movie poster some Nuggets fans prefer to see for the rest of this season and well beyond.

 

John Elway and Mike Shanahan were still chasing that elusive first ring the year that AM950 the Fan radio first went on air. The Avalanche had just moved to Denver. Bernie Bickerstaff was the head coach of the Nuggets and the Rockies were still waiting for their new ball park to be completed. 1995 was a transformative year in Denver sports and the Fan was there to chronicle what was happening as it happened. Today is the station's 20th birthday. It lit up the microphones on March 8, 1995. Since then a laundry list of hosts have come and gone from the station but one thing has remained a constant - the Fan is one of the best local sports stations in America. 

As listeners and admirers we here at the South Stands wish the Fan a sincere "Happy Birthday" and a toast to 20 more years of great programming.

"Shaw's failings as the Nuggets head coach had a lot to do with his inexperience. That seems clear. And, unfortunately, that leaves the Nuggets in a position where they're not likely to take a chance on a first-time head coach with their next hire. It's unfortunate because that rules out interim coach Melvin Hunt"

"It’s a team without an identity. It’s a team that says it wants to win but doesn’t appear to know how to. It’s a team for whom relative success (under Karl) wasn’t enough. It’s a team that wants to get to the next level but isn’t capable of it because the sickness starts at the top."

Exile on Blake Street

Written by

"...A Blake Street Perestroika of sorts, that will help mend the fences of a problematic relationship between ownership and fans. I want to love the Rockies, but this kind of vindictiveness makes it difficult to say the least."

"I scored free tickets. But I still spent $15 to park, $5 on a hot dog, $9 for loaded tots and $21 on three warm Coors Lights. That’s a total of $50 I dropped attending a free basketball game."

"-There’s nothing stopping Manning from forcing Denver’s hand. “Pay me or cut me” could very well be his stance. And he’s perfectly justified in taking it."
