The Ravens came to Miami on Sept. 17, 2000, for the first time in their five-year existence and the fans from Baltimore were out in force. It was the first time a Baltimore football franchise had played in South Florida since Dan Marino’s rookie season. A lot had changed from that day in 1983.

After a trip to New York to see Bruce Springsteen on Broadway, Nestor comes back from way downtown in Gotham with a big city story that Don Mohler has never heard for The Recon about the birth of his career. You know about Kenny Albert but what about his father's role in berthing WNST?
The Marching Ravens leader John Ziemann joins Nestor to reminisce about old Memorial Stadium tales and the time Lou Grant took him around town to learn the magic of the Baltimore Colts marching band. Did you see "The Fanatics" or "The Fumbleheads" back in the 1990s?
Five years after the departure from the Ravens after holding a parade, Dilfer sat down in Detroit at Super Bowl XL on Radio Row to discuss the art of being a quarterback and mentally preparing to win the biggest game of your life.
