There are only 2 words to describe yesterday… “NO WAY” Yesterday, Joey Salvia was our guest on A Show of Their Own. The interview was very informative and fun. Joey is so suave and easy to talk to. If you want to listen to the interview, click here.
Before our show went on air, my co-host, Bern told me that Joey Salvia and Michael Kay mentioned us on air. I was like NO WAY! I usually listen to the show via live streaming on the web. Monday, however, I didn’t catch the show. I was cooking dinner for my Mom, Dad, and Aunt. Bern said it was a short little quip about the show right before they went to an ESPN news break. That’s fine with me… it made my day! To know that my heroes (Kay, Salvia, la Greca) are vaguely aware of me brings a smile to my face. It’s the sports broadcasting equivalent of William Shakespeare asking if some lowly aspiring writer read Hamlet… I’m simply trying to say, Monday was a big day. It really meant a lot that they would even mention this small show I created 9 months ago on air. I cannot thank Joey Salvia enough.
I’ll be back with some Yankees blogs in a few hours….

It has been far too long since I last blogged here. Sorry for the delay, but it’s the end of the semester… so I’ve been busy. Since my last blog many things have happened. Mike Mussina retired, CC Sabathia was offered a LOT of money, and Hal Steinbrenner was named owner of the Yankees. Not to mention, “A Show of Their Own” has really started to take off.
It amazes me how far Bern and I have come in such a short time. It was merely 9 months ago that Bern and I produced our first show. We have a pretty good size following during the season. The off season brings staggering numbers, but that is expected. Quickly, let me do some shameless self-promoting…
Joey Salvia, singer, songwriter, and radio personality will join the show Monday, November 24th at 9:00 pm EST. Joey is a fixture on “The Michael Kay Show (TMKS), on 1050 ESPN Radio in NYC and XM channel 141. Joey will talk to us about his new CD (Long Lost Weekend) and about his role on the radio show. Michael Kay is my career hero. I plan on taking his job one day 😉 so to be able to talk to someone who works with Michael Kay is awesome. Not to mention, Joey Salvia has been great to me and Bern! He’s always willing to give us some advice on MySpace. I suggest you all look him up on iTunes. My two favorite songs joey sings are “Hooked Again” and “Ebbets Field.” I can’t wait to buy his new CD, “Long Lost Weekend.”
Lisa Winston, MLB.com reporter will join the show Monday December 1st at 9:00 pm EST. Lisa is the host of MLB.com’s Around the Minors as well as a Minor League correspondent for the channel. She covered the Yankees in the Arizona Fall League, so that should be interesting.
Jalal Leach, former Yankees farm hand and San Francisco Giant will join the show on December 8th at 9:00 pm EST. Jalal will be a great interview, I’m sure. Everyone who we’ve talked to about him coming on the show have had nothing but praise for Jalal. So, I’m extremely excited about chatting with him. Jalal also started The Baseball Mentoring Program Inc.
Then we have Richard Goodis, blogger on the show December 15th, again at 9:00pm EST. Richard has a site called The Sporting Muse. Richard offers some great insights into the wide world of sports. Not to mention, he’s pretty witty. Check his work out at: www.TheSportingMuse.com
Final Whisper: I’m BACK!! Tune in to A Show of Their Own every Monday at 9 pm EST So concludes my shameless self-promotion, for now…
