The format is simple: Four guys and a chick, and all the sports talk you want to hear. Mayhem In The A.M. on WQXI-AM (790 The Zone) is the only radio show that can get John Smoltz out of bed at 5:30 the morning after hes pitched, and get him to talk about going one-on-one with Barry Bonds the night before. The show has five strong personalities, but we spotlight CHRIS DIMINO. Not because hes the guy they call Rain Man for a memory that can pull up every obscure stat you could ever imagine, but because hes the stations most skilled interviewer. Aside from morning duties, he hosts a one-hour pregame show before every Braves home game. Dimino is also one of the few radio guys you actually see at games checking out the action in person when he should be home sleeping: Fer chrissakes, hes on the air at 6 in the morning!
