They rock. Does any one else have a hard time telling their voices apart or is that my personal affliction?

Their timbres are similar but still distinguishable (probably because, as noted earlier, I remember Slowes from his Bullets radio days - those not familiar with that earlier stint may have more difficulty distinguishing them).

Who?
I'm guessing these are the radio guys?
I've never listened to a Nats game on the radio.[...]


You're missing something - baseball is THE sport for radio (and now sounding better than ever with the Nats' move to FM-106.7).

Yeah,  for me there's nothing like a summer night on the deck listening to Charlie and Dave.

Or working in the basement with the TV on upstairs so you can run up if something happens and you want to see the replay. That way the wife doesn't get  on you for spending three hours every night doing nothing.  Because you are away from her. And she can't see that you are *still* doing nothing. :)

I can tell them apart, but I listen to them nearly every day since I can't watch live usually.

Slowes has an extreme basso resonance that is very pleasing.

Charlie says, "Pujols in his last year of a 7 year, $100,000 contract... no wait, that doesn't sound right"

I hear 2 voices.   Which is Charlie and which is Dave; I'm not quite sure.

Charlie Slowes' basic tessitura is slightly higher than Jageler's (tenor vs baritone or high baritone vs bass-baritone, more or less).

Anyone here ever listen to the White Sox radio or TV guys?  Jesus what total homer bores.  Totally made me appreciate Charlie and Dave that much more.

I think I recall that our resident White Sox authority is in agreement with this assessment.

Anything White Sux related is beneath contempt to placate their drooling fanbase.

Hawk is the Ed Wood of broadcasters. He's so bad, I end up laughing my ass off.

Thanks but I've never been a fan of listening to sports on the radio.

And, besides, I'm almost always home by the time the game starts.
