Former Maryland Stadium Authority chairman Tom Kelso returns to answer more of Nestor's very serious questions about the Baltimore Orioles lease, the "Memorandum of Understanding" (MOU) and what happens to Steve Bisciotti and the Ravens if Governor Wes Moore promises all of The Warehouse and Camden Yards land and power to the Angelos family.

Finally unearthing my 1990 late night KISStory dinner chat with Paul Stanley as “End Of The Road” KISS goodbye comes to Baltimore

Nestor Aparicio wanted the best and he got the best! As a kid who worshiped all things KISS in the 1970s musical coming of age, he interviewed Paul Stanley twice as a music critic – once at The News American as a 16-year old in 1985 and again in a late-night, by-invite personal sit down with the legendary leader of the hottest band in the world at a makeup free 1990 chat on the "Hot In The Shade" tour. It was a great chat when the groupies weren't beating on Stanley's hotel room at the Dulles Hyatt.

And why people can't shut up when Billy Joel or John Mayer are singing a love song.

Recalling the night I sang three Police songs with Andy Summers in Havana

It's the greatest cocktail party story that Nestor Aparicio has in a lifetime journey that has exceeded all expectations. Back in March 1999 while in Havana, Cuba covering the Orioles historic baseball visit and Fidel Castro, he ran into Woody Harrelson and Andy Summers in La Bodeguita del Medio and convinced the legendary Hall of Fame guitarist from The Police to join a local band.
