BoiSeattle ,

Thanks for posting the post game show

Bronco football is the straw that stirs the drink but please have the show skew younger and less baseball and golf. I am only 50 years old so I have no interest in those two. More/some MLS would help

The Best Show!

Caves and Prater do a great job each and everyday of bringing Boise sports to the people, as well as including a good mix of the national scene. Highly entertaining and educational. Great show and great people! Keep up the great work!

Got to love Jeff Caves and Mike Prater and our local sports talk. When I travel abroad, I’m still listening. I especially enjoy the Boise State emphasis. Keep it up guys! 😃🏈🏀
