And like having you on. I’ve been chasing you for three months to come on. You chase people. You chase people to come on this show for 15 years. And I can’t get you on and now you. I mean, you now understand how hard it was to get other people on. For me to get you on. It took me three months to get through your neighborhood. Right? And I’m still was like, I’m texting you yesterday. Like are you committed to this?

So just being a part of like wacky like no way or say so. He this this will jog your memory.

So the 25th I’m doing 25 stories of glory of all the years we’ve done this number 20 fives the signs and the signs like you were there that they like you were in charge of the signs right like ending them in a while. In the beginning. We didn’t have a radio station in 9697.
Ray Bachman 02:03
I mean when we by the time we got the Camden Yards when the Orioles were in the playoffs. People were lined up waiting to get assigned. Well, I didn’t have to do much work.
Nestor Aparicio 02:11
Tell me about it because I have a couple of these. I have a couple here we go. This was one of your bank that yes bank the arbor Cleveland. This was in 1996 sign smack the six Yeah, it has a meat cheese Bay Cafe Browns Toyota City della Rose’s downtown sports exchange and loonies pub in Kent one location loonies. So this is

around the corner Pratt, right. Correct. Right across from Tijuana West pret.
Nestor Aparicio 02:39
Spank the Yanks. It says here for Baltimore’s number one sports talk tune into the Budweiser sports warmer nasty Nestor Aparicio. Five to 8am 1360 So this was the 1996 arc. This is probably the second sign we did. We did bag the Jags we have stomped the saints. We have bagged the Jags. This was a 97 This was the clobber Cleveland This is a 9097
Ray Bachman 03:04
for that one right there. I had a a handcart with about six cases. And those things were having it really had a real habit. And I just wonder of Canada, Howard and people were lined up to get him so I didn’t have to, you know, actually that day. I got two free tickets to the playoff game. No, no, no. Online. It was denormals Play the mariners in
Nestor Aparicio 03:26
the playoffs. They played the Mariners and then they played Cleveland after that
Ray Bachman 03:30
was the mariners 90 said I was doing a nasty booth. Right. And a guy came back it was 96 gameplay
Nestor Aparicio 03:35
Cleveland. This is a 96 sign. Then we played them in 96 and then played them again in 97. We didn’t do them in 97 because they throw us off the property and 96 they threw us off the property for this in this. This was these were the two weeks in October 96 Angelo satis thrown off in 97. I never printed them off. I have John Ogden holding these at Hooters. We did the show at Hooters that day. And all the Hooters girls and John OG and have a picture that Gary Williams there to know that was the opening day at Camden park on the Pavitra and that was in 97.
Ray Bachman 04:09
Oh yeah, I remember I remember the Hooters
Nestor Aparicio 04:11
you mentioned to carry williamsii And that so so Hennessey did the ugly sides Hennessy did the artwork on I’ll give him the credit for that the short squat little things this week Budweiser paid for this so this is a go Oriole son use go Oreos man Angelo’s right you know, throw you out and then this was you know, Hennessy did this because this was Terps right? So this is beautiful here. So this was after we had the station. It has our logo on it. It says tune into Baltimore’s only 24 hours all sports talk radio station, nasty 1570 sports. This had to be the host around the edges all the hosts around the edges here we go sports guys seven to 10 the Bob Haney show 10 to two nasty Nestor two to six and the sport sky seven to 10am No, no. Okay, so the sports guy that that was probably Spiro and Swami. That’s what they Yeah, the spirit swamp. So this was a Go Terps sign so people don’t remember we didn’t read ones but we did the purple one. So when when people come to you other than bitching about me or politics or any of that other stuff, they come to you and you say something good about the station. What what do you remember about 25? year what would be your number one thing? Free the birds? I know you were there for that. I looked through the pictures.
Ray Bachman 05:23
Over the course of 25 years, what was my favorite memory are like number one. Match? That’s a lot of time brother. I’d have to sit down and
Nestor Aparicio 05:30
how many road trips did you go on?
Ray Bachman 05:34
I lost count. I have no idea. I mean, the San Diego 197 bucks to march wrote it was still the code. Yes. 97. That was a fun trip for me.
Nestor Aparicio 05:43
I found the pictures are you from that today, I found the pictures of all of us. That is a I do have a group photo from it. There’s like 100 of us that is a top 25 All Time wn St. Memory was one of the it was the first great road tailgate. I mean, our fans are known for tailgate. Now, you know, Brian throws these parties now. 10 years after I stopped doing it, parking lots beer drinking, taking over stadiums, you know, like taking over bars, literally that existed 9097 with the San Diego and I remember this is real community organizing the 97 tailgate and show Enoch still talks about that Pat, from Baldwin talks about
Ray Bachman 06:19
that. Remember to do to get thrown off the plane as we were leaving, they had to stop the plane to throw that dude off because he was drunk.
Nestor Aparicio 06:27
George, I hope you got home. I hope everything worked out for you. Picture which was so that tailgate that day we all got to the Doubletree in San Diego and I was doing a show with Ralph Rubio from Rubio’s tacos. It was taco and Larry Lucchino, who’s only got five World Series rings since he left here with the Red Sox, right? So literally keynote came and sat on the couch that day, we did radio, but everybody was like, What are we doing for the game? What are we doing for the game? And I said, Well, I wanted to put together a tailgate and Yoky was there. And Yogi had Yogi’s all American open Bel Air up into Aberdeen. And Yogi said, Walk cook. And Mike from the roofs route 50. Mike said, I’ll cook and I said alright, so my aunt Jane, were you with us when we went to the Costco to get all right, so we went to the Costco in San Diego, we bought grills. We bought four grills. I had a budget for it. I put 200 bucks up he bought four grills he bought charcoal and we literally got to the parking lot at like 7am we set everything else if
Ray Bachman 07:33
you aren’t a part of this. I was on that trip I just didn’t get up at seven o’clock. No
Nestor Aparicio 07:38
you were Johnny loves ripping it off. I think Dan and Dan in the Gaslamp but I remember but we were out in the parking lot that day and and everybody felt there was no Twitter. Right? There was no social media. There was no way of knowing where we were you couldn’t you could call people and say I’m over a parking lot pan or whatever, right?
Ray Bachman 07:57
I don’t even think cell phones were a big thing about that. But
Nestor Aparicio 08:00
it was the biggest it was the biggest party that that we were very proud to have thrown it and it was the beginning of like, what has become like a tradition for Ravens fans going on the road seeing again, you know
Ray Bachman 08:11
you weren’t there for this we did a bus trip to giant stadium Terps Notre Dame I did not go on that. Hennessy round the trip and we had like five or five bosses. Yeah was crazy. Ryan Ross from had a bus. I think Haney might have had a bus Terry Ford had a bus. I had a bus. I guess it’s
Nestor Aparicio 08:30
okay to harass kick, right? I don’t know. But it’s signs may have been the ones for the bus quite frankly. Right. Like, yeah,
Ray Bachman 08:39
he got Captain Harvey cold cuts. Okay, right. And there was Steve. Steve had organized everything right. Here’s a box for you. Here’s a box for you. So, the funniest thing about the whole trip before the trip even started, we’re in the parking lot and there’s six offers and and Steve’s got this little Alright, here’s what we got to see better system. Steve had a megaphone. There’s five of us there. And I’m like looking. I’m like, we got a megaphone for that. There’s only five. But my brother and I were on. We’re running one of the buses. And Steve said there’s enough sandwiches. There’s one for each person and it was cat Marvy said we’re big. And I’m like, I’d like to have one of those for a ride home. So my brother and I want to Hennessey’s bus and took two to Sodom on ice and put them on ours. When he got on the bus. He was sure he was sure to him. Until right now, he didn’t know I was going to do that. That was such a party on the way there. The people on my bus said hey, can we stop and get alcohol because we run out of alcohol? And I was like dude, I don’t know if we can do that because and then they got together kitty litter like we’ll give you 500 bucks
Nestor Aparicio 09:56
but the we pulled into a really like a boarded up one in Detroit. Oh One of my trips, one of my really fun trips, we did Canton, Cleveland and Detroit before they ripped down Tiger Stadium. And since before the stage in 97, I believe about if I’m not mistaken, but we did a Midwestern baseball trip where we we saw games in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Detroit. And came back pretty good. True. Yeah. And went to the Hall of Fame and went to the Hall of Fame. And it was it was a small trip. It was 30 people. I mean, the bus had space on it as I remembered it. And I was a little disappointed, but I just wanted to make the trip, right. I wanted to go to Tiger Stadium. And we got to Detroit. And we did a group kitty. We were like, let’s stop and get some fresh beer. Let’s stop and get some food. But those were like my wife did the bus trip down to New Orleans. And they were all stopping at different places on the way back to get food and get beer and stuff like that because you can only put so much on you have to get ice at some point.
Ray Bachman 10:51
Well, one of the buses the toilet on the bus was completely
Nestor Aparicio 10:57
clean. I just
Ray Bachman 11:00
made the trip home had a river going down the aisle.
Nestor Aparicio 11:03
I just made Nesta boss face for the first time to keep this stuff
Ray Bachman 11:07
when I tell you about when I was working
Nestor Aparicio 11:08
well, right. I mean, I believe me. There were many things I found out about much later on. Right back, Quincy. You’re 25 years we’ve been doing this and you’re like Dude, what are you gonna talk? Man? Like, nobody cares
Ray Bachman 11:18

Nestor Aparicio 12:28
Um, for Dundalk used to come on how many holes in the walls you and I’ve been to? And you and I are in a place. It’s a hole in the wall. No offense to Pappas, you know, but
Ray Bachman 12:35
I remember going with you when we were in San Diego while we were in San Diego.
Nestor Aparicio 12:38
Super Bowl. Super Bowl. We stay downtown Superbowl. Oh, you’re right. You’re right. It was a 2003 Super Bowl. Yeah, you’re right. You and I went to San Diego. No, we were in Oakland and we went down to San Diego. We went to the AFC Championship game. It was in Oakland, you and me. We went to Oakland Raiders for 20. Shorts. It was the Titans. The Raider The Titans and the raiders and the Raiders won the game and then the Super Bowl was in San Diego, and they got their ass kicked by Tampa. I feel
Ray Bachman 13:09
like we flew up and then we flew to Oakland for the championship.
Nestor Aparicio 13:13
And then went down to San Diego for the game. Yes.
Ray Bachman 13:17
Anyway, we went to Pacific Beach or something. Okay, remember that when you go into this bar, and we resist super out of place? Like we stuck out like sore thumbs. You had your big leather coat that we were just no we were not cool. They were all cool. We weren’t it was just like a by trendy beach crowd crowd. Yeah, it was like something you would see on a TV show. And I just remember walking around there going, Man this is we’re sticking out like sore thumbs. Why would a really big place and then you go into like another room. They had this giant TV movie screen with TVs everywhere.
Nestor Aparicio 13:53
I don’t remember this.
Ray Bachman 13:54
I’ll figure out where it was. All right. Maybe I’m just imagining all this.
Nestor Aparicio 14:00
Well, I’ve been to San Diego enough. I mean, you’ve only been a couple times. So maybe your your recollection of it, because they all kind of runs together for me. And that like I had Leslie Shrieve here before you came. And she’s productive day to helping executives get more organized and stuff. And I found all my date books. Remember that? The date books. I just had my back pocket, right? So I mean, I found them all this week. And it was the Deion Sanders and my wife even said, Casey put a picture of you and him and Dion up from the night and Cornell Yeah, we’re in a party hill station, which is now a Mac voice. And I get my snowballs in the parking lot there. And that night was kind of legendary right like Deion Sanders showing up in a lead. And I’m wondering is that a top 25 wn S T memory I and I think it is but either way. I wanted to figure out the date. And I Wikipedia that Dion was Oh 405 And then I saw kudos Are we? Oh four, no five and I’m like, Alright. When was it? Where was it? Jen’s like, he was wearing a full length fur coat mink coat. It was cold out. And I’m like, yeah, yeah, I remember being cold that night. So it had to have been like late October, November, December, and I couldn’t find the date. And I had the date book. And I finally found I went through my date book and it says there
Ray Bachman 15:24
you still had that book from long ago. I have every date book
Nestor Aparicio 15:27
of my life in what’s the calendar in my life like Mary Lou Hendricks. So I put them all together to show everybody that I’m that I’m that I’m crazy. But this this is these are all my calendars and your names and your 1000 times, man because like you would book you would book guest for me. I don’t know what that is. But that’s okay. Oh, it’s a Denver Broncos. Oh. We beat them.
Ray Bachman 15:54
They still have a team.
Nestor Aparicio 15:55
You’re welcome for John Elway. We came John Elway. So so how many Super Bowl rings do we have
Ray Bachman 16:04
count Nicolson array? I
Nestor Aparicio 16:05
don’t know. I don’t measure my myself value Super Bowl rings anymore. But But anyway, the date minders here that we’ve had for all these years, I have every barn show. So if John Ogden was at the barn that night it says Ogden barn if Ray Lewis was there it says Ray Lu and right so when I go back and try to piece it together the 1998 season and say, What night was Ray Lewis? And Rod Woodson there, I can listen to it and hear us talk about the Green Bay game the day before and then I can immediately say, Oh, that was obviously that week because you can but things get lost man. 25 years long time, right. I mean, like,
Ray Bachman 16:44
I look quick to Brother, don’t blink.
Nestor Aparicio 16:47
And it is kind of crazy. And now I’ve been thrown out right by the Ravens. I’m writing a letter to Steve shoddy next week, as well as John Harbaugh, Eric Kosta? Sashi brown they’ll all hear from me. But like on the other side of this the measure everything we did for 25 years here and the people that were involved in it like you and all these people that were on the bus trip, even the two guys who screwed out of sandwich that would remember all these years that I got a crab cake on here. We’re Papist by the way, Pappas they just bring your crab cakes, it’s great. You know what I love about this nice look incredible crispy on the bottom, which is sort of like your business on top party on the bottom. I like that Papist restaurant we’re in Glen Burnie Redbox. misir, our longtime executive producer. People come to me all the time and they tell me that they miss our monologues. We’re like the show would start the nasty theme song. I’d say Hey, Ray, what’s up and you’d say I you know, my daughter’s in preschool or just you know, your daughter’s in college now. Right. How’s your kid now?
Ray Bachman 17:44
Ryan just turned 21. She’s in cosmetology school. So I’ll be getting free haircuts soon.
Nestor Aparicio 17:51
Do you have any hair to cut? Yeah, I got a lot of hair. Did you know me when I had long hair the first time you didn’t meet me till after that.
Ray Bachman 17:58
I was no I was there. Were you there? Brad Pennington? Can
Nestor Aparicio 18:02
you help me to cut my hair?
Ray Bachman 18:03
But I remember I used to listen to you before. Before I see your listeners. You know how. So I would come home from work around four or 430 Go take a shower. I lived with my grandparents. And they listened to 1360 legends radio, because I had Wayne Rooney congruent, and he would go off the program you’re about to listen to that was not the views that
Nestor Aparicio 18:26
that was Ken Jackson. And Ken Jackson did that wrestling The following program,
Ray Bachman 18:34
right? And then you would come on it would be this. You want to get nasty. Right, right. And I was like, What’s this? And I just started listening to you. And then I went on a trip to spring training. I thought it was 9590.
Nestor Aparicio 18:45
I shared that picture today. You see that? Facebook, and you had an
Ray Bachman 18:49
Aparicio jersey on I came up to you. I said, Dude, are you Nestor. He was like, Who were you? I was like I listened to you. Nobody listens to me. Yeah, you’re the chair. The guy says no one likes the guy. Right? Yeah. You said come over to Marriott. We’re doing the show live tonight. I’ll throw you on. I went over and that picture that you posted was the first time I was on the air with you. I’m wondering you have that I even said I don’t after show you like I don’t really know my way around Fort Lauderdale. And you hung out with us. We may want to like the Bob beach club or something. But that was the first time we ever hung out.
Nestor Aparicio 19:20
Wow. And you but you have a picture of it. Like I guess your brother took it or something like that? Because your wife’s in it. She’s in it.
Ray Bachman 19:27
She’s in it. She’s my uncle was there. Your uncle took acid
Nestor Aparicio 19:31
and that was at the DoubleTree in Fort Lauderdale and Cypress Creek and that was 96. I said 95 Is that wrong? Whatever your
Ray Bachman 19:39
six whatever your we had David Wells
Nestor Aparicio 19:41
9696 Because in 97 year I did it from the Marriott and that year I had Alomar and Pat Gillick and Kevin Malone came and sat. But you weren’t you didn’t start working with us or fireworks with you
Ray Bachman 19:58
Nestor Aparicio 19:59
because it Mountain Dew boots. Yeah, so
Ray Bachman 20:00
what happened when once we got back from spring training? You put an ad in the paper. I want Steve to die. Yes, I answered the No, there was no Steve yet. Before Steve, I know you before Steve. Absolutely. Wow. So you put an ad I answered the ad you said dude, I know you’re like I trust you. I hung out with you. But I want to give everybody a fair crack at running this booth. I need somebody who can get to and from the stadium, who don’t get I said, Dude, I live a five minute walk from the stage. You said you’re hired.
Nestor Aparicio 20:30
27 years later, but I
Ray Bachman 20:32
haven’t met Alan McCallum. The first time I did the booth. Alan came by the booth because he was your ballpark reporter but that was definitely before Steve
Nestor Aparicio 20:39
Allen came into my life. My high school English teacher Sue Monday was she had worked at Macy’s and worked in HR. She’s been in radio for a long time up on the Jersey Shore. Sue Monday was my high school English teacher. She taught me Catcher in the Rye and grapes of wrath and John Steinbeck. She hit me and said you had a radio show? What if I answered phones or printers? I want to get into radios what she said to me. I’m like, Why do you want to do that? This is 1994. And she came in one day she said, I met this young man who’s an usher at Oregon rich. He’s loves baseball knows everything about the Orioles. He might be a good guy for you to talk to about doing the ballpark job because Tom Cat didn’t want to do whatever. And every night Howard shear was doing it for me at that time to hump it out. And Alan came down. He said the end the 95 So that would have been the Ripken period that he came into my life. And we went to I mean, when Alan Moore hit the home run in Cleveland, we were together. When Jeffrey Mayer reached over the fence we would Skok are so mean our seats in Yankee Stadium we saw his arms reach over from the side not from the front. So Alan all these years later in the orals went in Are you engaged at all? Are you your guy? You’re like, out of the sports thing? Because you all have the scars? I got old.
Ray Bachman 21:54
I mean, he’s not as important to me as a you Okay, fair enough. Yeah, like the Orioles were my life your life? You know, like, yes, but now I work at night so I don’t get to really watch the games. It’s the connection is not there. I would love for them to win the World Series. But I don’t have the passion. Are
Nestor Aparicio 22:11
you feeling that all summer long being in bars at night that people are into it? Because the stadium is empty somebody to get bought? Yeah, no. Real
Ray Bachman 22:19
people will say, hey, there are a handful, Hey, turn the game on. But the fact that you even have to turn the game on, it’s kind of crazy.
Nestor Aparicio 22:26
Or trying to find the Game of Thrones. Plus another thing that you know, I mean, Luke covers the team for me up in Shrewsbury, he’s in Pennsylvania, there are games, he cannot physically get on top of it. But here’s the
Ray Bachman 22:37
crazy thing. That’s crazy. The crazy thing with the Royals, I mean to me, is, I mean, Cal Ripken has been retired 20 years. So these these fans at the ballpark. Now, they don’t know Cal Ripken or care about Cal Ripken or Rick Dempsey, you know, this bar is not there anymore. So it’s a new era coming. And the kids that are there now. That’s all they know. And it’s their time. You know, it’s it’s, I don’t know if that makes any sense. It just seems like there was a lot of somewhere in between
Nestor Aparicio 23:06
the stopgap was they were they last 100 days. And yoga has been a dip for 30 years. I mean, like literally right, but we
Ray Bachman 23:12
had we had the 9697 season which we were the best team and base by the way. I
Nestor Aparicio 23:17
want to thank Eddie Lauer brought this out to me. The last time we were together. This is the why brought this for you the wire to wire 97 playoffs. Eddie came out at the beginning of the 25th anniversary over and I was just looking at sort of the team was
Ray Bachman 23:29
a loaded master. We were the best team in baseball for those two years didn’t win at all, but
Nestor Aparicio 23:35
but they also spent gobs of money. People came down and supported the team. It mattered to the community in a way that they pretended matters. But does it you know and now the owner comes out he will sign a lease. Talk poor mouthing about signing Adley rutschman sign and gunner I mean that’s bad timing. It’s unbelievable. That they’re still there and effective when they’ve been such an awful company. You know, I mean like but
Ray Bachman 24:04
it’s because it’s a whole new crew now. None of these guys care or know about any of that. All they know is what’s in
Nestor Aparicio 24:10
front of them right now. The people that spend the money do the residue you know the part of that do do they
Ray Bachman 24:17
were going to ballpark on a Friday night it’s it’s 21 year olds everywhere drinking which is fine because we were those 21 year olds before. Oh, I agree with that. Being at the ballpark on the weekend is the
Nestor Aparicio 24:28
place of reason that you cared as a 21 year old is your grandparents loved my cousin. Are they loved Brooks Brooks Robinson do they love boop pow. I don’t the lore of this has nothing to do with JJ Hardy or Manny Machado or let alone Brady Anderson or Cal Ripken or Eddie Murray. Right. Somewhere
Ray Bachman 24:48
along the line. It became a big business and the guys and I’m not picking on Oreos, pick a team. Those guys on our team they don’t care about me you are the city and they don’t have to it’s not a bad thing. It’s It’s where they go to work and if tomorrow that other place calls you know New York or Boston
Nestor Aparicio 25:05
that will Flaherty they tap on the shoulder so you’re gonna pitch for the Orioles today right just that doesn’t mean he loves crabcakes or he’s gonna
Ray Bachman 25:12
there was a connection when we were younger I mean the guys lived here guys will be at Phillips they will be at Henry’s over on Fourth Avenue after daybreak
Nestor Aparicio 25:17
Dempsey all 40 years laters putting their fifth years laters putting together this you know baseball thing in Colombia Mike board is still here. I mean, BJ sir, off I did a I did the crab races with him down in Lexington market. I mean, there are people you
Ray Bachman 25:29
and BJ surhoff got together.
Nestor Aparicio 25:33
I give PJ his space. I’ve always respected BJ.
Ray Bachman 25:37
I was on BJs team at the Ripken minor league. I remember that he’s a gamer dude. And a lot of respect and love the guy. Very private guy, which which is, you know, nothing wrong with that. But uh, I took a lot of heat and had a run a lot of laps because of you when I played at Ripon fantasy. Why? Because you will definitely you and him and Palmera were all butting heads. Remember, Ray, you work for Nesta go to a lab around the property. I’m kidding. I’m kidding.
Nestor Aparicio 26:08
That’s gonna say I mean, I think BJ didn’t like me that much. I thought we fixed things. I never had things broken with BJ. I just was me. And you know, that’s okay. BJ and I traveled to China together. His wife Polly, they
Ray Bachman 26:20
do crazy things Palmyra might have been, it was Palmyra.
Nestor Aparicio 26:22
Well, Palmyra was Yeah, yeah.
Ray Bachman 26:26
Then somebody pointed out, yeah, yeah. Well, he
Nestor Aparicio 26:30
pointed his finger to and said he had cheated,
Ray Bachman 26:31
right? I didn’t do steroids. He didn’t know what it was. They thought it was before
Nestor Aparicio 26:35
I could put my finger back at him all 27 years like you’re not going to the Hall of Fame.
Ray Bachman 26:41
Or it’s another crop to you got what Clemens the all time strikeout guy bonds, right dude, baseball, embrace steroids. Everybody was doing them. You embraced it. You allow it to happen. Now you keep them out of the Hall of Fame. You got guys voting who never played sports day in their life saying this guy can’t go on because he did some steroids. But
Nestor Aparicio 26:59
But Pudge Rodriguez is in big poppies, a ton of people. Of course. Well, I mean, that’s just free ways to sit and take phone calls on this and try to have it make sense. Peter Angelos doesn’t make sense. Steve Bashaud. He’s a billionaire. He doesn’t have to make sense. None of this has to make any sense. I mean, this taken Lamar in a microcosm, injured the last few years couldn’t finish the year. The last time we heard from him before the money was telling a fan and Pennsylvania to perform fellatio upon himself out on Twitter. It stayed up for five days it got taken down. Nobody ever got to ask him a question about it. He never faced the media on it. And the next time he showed up at a press conference was to pick up a $72 million check. It’s just a different. Do you remember when Aubrey Hoff called Baltimore? A menorah Hall?
Ray Bachman 27:53
That was after he left?
Nestor Aparicio 27:54
No, he was here. He can’t No, no, no, no, no. He played here that year. He played here dude. He came back and was still here when he said that he was still here when he said it. And he came back and played and made $3 million that year.
Ray Bachman 28:07
Well, maybe we’re doing something well, I
Nestor Aparicio 28:10
guess my point is what you expect I got into this 32 years ago and I’ve known you 27 years 28 Whatever it’s been you know that at heart all of this ravens and Orioles crap was about loving the city. put love in Baltimore. Right? It said Baltimore and therefore I’ll fight you for it. Right. Like that’s really what? For everybody that love the Orioles or love the Ravens was about loving art. It was a it was a way to show our community put the beyond the hat put the Baltimore on the jerseys. You know, one of the things we fought here forever. was Baltimore on the road jerseys. Do you remember? Absolutely. lost his mind on that. We did eight years of Baltimore on the Rogers i i mentioned it it was a topic when I talked to Peter Angelos in March of 1997. So in March of 97, I’m given the owner like they’re the Orioles. Why wouldn’t you put Baltimore on the road? Well, there are certain P mil and all that. Yeah, we’re all that right. So by Oh 506 The Nationals existed. Were free the birds we still have snow balled him on the road jerseys. They they put the bottom on the Rogers still nine I believe. So it took them even four years after
Ray Bachman 29:21
prior up DC having a team because, well, if you’re marketing to all these different places, and you think it’s going to hurt your business or hurt your money, why would it hurt them? I don’t know if it would I think it would have lots of one and as Oriole fan master. I mean, we didn’t get to go to too many away games growing up as a child. So I never even really paid attention to it.
Nestor Aparicio 29:42
But now it’s all they sell. Right. I guess that’s my point. My point is we for 12 years. Were trying to get them to put Baltimore on the road jerseys to honor Baltimore. They refused to do it. But when it became financially expeditious for them, they do it and then act like it’s always been that way that they’ve cared about the community right like these goofy black things are wearing now that wrote the the the ones they lose in every Friday night and a year when they’re 35 games over 500 They were there’s black jerseys or like a pitcher got hurt well, right the whole deal, right? I mean, those jerseys are not good mojo. But it says Baltimore on everybody wants to own one because it hard. You want to you want to love the community you’re from right? And then you know, and then you Danner Pasadena, and the city’s rough and people don’t want to come and nobody wants to come to city and Baltimore itself has this reputation for not being hospitable or safe or likeable or whatever. But now they trade off of it. And I guess that’s my point all these years later, the only thing I’ve ever traded off of is Baltimore not really off the Ravens or the Orioles it’s off of people listen, because they love Baltimore. They love the city. They love the community. They want to feel like they’re a part of something you know, and only sports knows that
Ray Bachman 30:58
the only thing that stays the same everything changes.
Nestor Aparicio 31:02
Money. There you go. Had you know that
Ray Bachman 31:06
top of the food chain or
Nestor Aparicio 31:08
re Bachmann’s here, he knows nothing about sports anymore. He used to be an expert on the radio, our longtime executive producer, all of our fun signs can be found the the OIC stomped them saints this was an early sign here. I think this is a 96 or if I’m not mistaken, I have to go back and check that out. But I can still smell Memorial Stadium on it.
Ray Bachman 31:27
Did you do something for the dolphins on the saints winter at Memorial Stadium?
Nestor Aparicio 31:32
I didn’t do a sign I was there that nor
Ray Bachman 31:34
the ball or so that was a new that said that that was just the
Nestor Aparicio 31:37
bottom or the ball was the name of the theme of the game. Right? I have my buy ticket in my press pass that night. The thing I’ll tell you about that night is I did not have a parking pass. I was new to radios in 1992 or three. I was just getting on the radio. It was a very unorganized game. Right. It was put on I think by the stadium authority time maybe Memorial Stadium, who the Promote who was paying that right to do it. There were three competing groups trying to get the expansion team that we never got, by the way, as a history lesson. Charlotte, Jacksonville, I still have to say that 30 years later that people know that we we lost that expansion, right. But that game that night, I was on the air five to seven. It was a Friday night. And I went over to the stadium and it was the typical Memorial Stadium issue. There was nowhere to park and it was packed with you. Did you go to that game? Right. You were kid at the time. 1993 I was out of high school. Okay. It was mobbed pack. John Mackey got his ring at halftime that night, it was a chance to show how much we love football. We want to be back in the league. We’ve been gone 10 years. And I barely got in there. Like I got parked somewhere over by city caught me and it was just a nightmare to get there. And I remember going and going up to the press box. And you know all of it was like a little weird because we had just left baseball there, right. And the buoy Bay Sox were like about the play there, whatever. So the stadium wasn’t like a foreign place. But seeing a football game there seen an NFL game there was weird after all, because I went to all those colts games in the 70s and 80s. So I went up there and I stayed until halftime. And I left at halftime. His game was friggin it was a mess. It was the drunkest unruly list.
Ray Bachman 33:23
It was Memorial State. It
Nestor Aparicio 33:24
was a show. It was the drunkest it was Preakness with 50,000 football fans drunk, yelling on a Friday. I mean it was sounds about right. And this was before the CFL came, right. So it was the one football game that everybody had to go to the NFL was coming back. If you wanted to give a middle finger to Pete Roselle or tagline who I guess was running it by then. But like that was a legendary one of a kind night. Totally one of you know, never never be wrestling.
Ray Bachman 33:54
I was telling my son the other day I said when we want to Memorial Stadium. You went you parked? You weren’t leaving? Because it was bumper to bumper. You were in the middle of the there was the 10 cars on each side. I see like the helicopter you had leaves you weren’t leaving.
Nestor Aparicio 34:06
And it’s it’s incredible. It looks like a toy toy. You know, like toy cars. It
Ray Bachman 34:14
was legit. If you were in the senator was 100 cars around you.
Nestor Aparicio 34:18
So in my neighborhood my dad, we never drove my dad. We always took the bus. And when Mr. Pete would want to drive because I take it out dad boss and my dad be like, it’s bumper to bumper parking P like you’re on the bus and we’ll be home and 45 minutes. No problem. You sit out there we’re not leaving. Right. So we always took the bus.
Ray Bachman 34:38
That was our Well, y’all. We number three call on Pratt and Calhoun.
Nestor Aparicio 34:41
I don’t have that experience as a kid of sitting there waiting. I have that at concerts leading the capitals in our parking lot. You know I have that all the time. You weren’t going anywhere? Yeah, but Memorial Stadium idle as a kid I we got the first boss
Ray Bachman 34:53
we were always on the bus as I got older and we drove man I remember driving to Memorial Stadium mistake. It’s a mistake. The The coolest thing about Memorial Stadium was when you made that right on Charles Street and the lights and you’re not Charles 33rd coming off Charles and you just saw the lights, some special lights
Nestor Aparicio 35:08

You don’t need the like the Black Crowes love them. It’s the best rock book I’ve ever read.
Ray Bachman 39:03
But on Sammy Hagar it is really good
Nestor Aparicio 39:04

From Led Zeppelin led guy from Led Zeppelin wants to be in my band, and they screwed it up and he wrote about how they screwed up. I
Ray Bachman 39:25

Sammy Hagar is playing in Greenville, South Carolina, playing a little theater with the circle. Through it a lot of all Van Halen Sammy Hagar little LEDs.
Ray Bachman 41:11
I seen him at Wolf Trap. One of the best concerts I’ve seen in recent memory. Okay,
Nestor Aparicio 41:14
so I’m seeing that show. I’ve been trying to get to Greenville, South Carolina for 20 years. My mother’s from a little town called Abby Ville, about an hour south of there. And I toward the end of my mother’s life. I was going to try to take her down there but she wasn’t mobile enough. And I thought it might upset her. I thought taking her down there. To her hometown. She may spend three days crying and I really didn’t want that for her at 9495 Like I
Ray Bachman 41:38
do when I ride through my own. Right, exactly.
Nestor Aparicio 41:41
So I never took her. She died five years ago. I’ve talked about going I’ve talked about going I talked about going the Eagles play down in Greenville, the bylo center down there about a year and a half ago. Didn’t go this Hagar thing happened in October on a Wednesday. I’m flying down. I’m going to spend two days in my mom’s hometown. Just kind of chillin it out seeing Abby Ville, South Carolina, and I’m gonna see Sammy Hagar, what’s the only job I have booked? What’s the 25th fourth fifth Wednesday fifth 25th of October you want to go maybe come on man. I’m gonna go after the 24th in the back on the 26th and in this meaning that you put Depeche Mode to play in that week and I’m definitely definitely definitely seen Depeche Mode so I’m doing that kicks saying goodbye what come on and
Ray Bachman 42:28
know what’s going to happen sooner or later.
Nestor Aparicio 42:30
Used to go see funny money all the time. Yeah, I forgot the kicks broke off. I mean, I John Allen. I got into a fistfight about that over Costas. She’s like, No, they were they do funny money. He’s doing funny money. He wasn’t doing kicks. And I’m like, I didn’t really know that I just thought funny money was like a side projects Nirvana
Ray Bachman 42:46
hit kicks disappeared. Funny money they would play Daytonas a lot and I was the house DJ downer for a while so I got the check. I’m a funny
Nestor Aparicio 42:55
money was all kicked songs, right?
Ray Bachman 42:57
No, they they had four original albums. Now. The first one was a lot of Steve stuff that never made the kicks.
Nestor Aparicio 43:04
If you want to see funny money when he played the itch, and
Ray Bachman 43:08
like, they they would play some kick songs, but not a lot. Okay. They would never play Don’t close your eyes. They would never play right. Okay, finally near the end. Steve said what the hell everybody’s coming out. They want to hear well, we’ll do it so they there was a point where they started to do but he just said it didn’t feel right. Don’t you
Nestor Aparicio 43:24
know what’s the craziest thing for me is my wife is of the air she’s a little younger than me. And to her like, Don’t close your eyes is a song she knows knows well. Grew up with knows everyone I took her to if they played heritage fair, and Midwest, I know what a back kick. She’s from New Hampshire, you know, so why would she? And we were leaving the concert like, and they were playing Don’t close your eyes. And we’re like in that little area in downtown Dundalk. And she’s singing every word from the district, MTV.
Ray Bachman 43:51
I mean, that was in heavy rotation. It was when I had that total request after school. It was every day. Yeah, I mean, for a good run back when the power ballots were were. And it’s
Nestor Aparicio 44:03
it’s interesting to me that they’re known for that in a way when I think of them, I think of them as our band or local. I say that Steve all the time, I think at the edge and I think I saw the first time I saw kicks, was with Aerosmith at the Capitol center in 1982. Or three. It was when Perry and white for wanting to ban with for more than a ban. And Jimmy Crespo and Rick do fey were doing guitars. Steven Tyler was smacked out of his mind at pictures. He looks smacked out of his mind. A couple people that read that show. Somebody else was supposed to open that show and didn’t do it. Fast way are like one of those bands and they filled in and they were so much better that night. And I have I have pictures from that show of Steve sitting on this crane with a umbrella singing for shame that night. So this is 42 Two years ago
Ray Bachman 45:02
I remember the live album when they were at College Park. Oh, yeah, right around listen that all the time and like, blew my fuse which was there, there was the biggest record that hit at the right time because that’s when I you know, I was getting into hammered
Nestor Aparicio 45:15
Cold Blood man red light green light.
Ray Bachman 45:19
And if you go on YouTube, you can watch old hammer Jack shows. And like Donnie Brunel who’s you know, the original bass player, that guy was a beast like watch him you forget how good of a bass player he was. And he’s a maniac gonna stay
Nestor Aparicio 45:33
said Shan had never seen John Allen play drums. And we’ve been to dinner with John
Ray Bachman 45:38
John Allen’s the drummer to me.
Nestor Aparicio 45:41
Well, and he deals with that. We talked about that in the segment, just like how people come and say, hey, I want to see you play the drums, you know, and my wife had ever seen him play. And then I went to the reunion. He played the drums the night Sarah Fleischer retired, and then he played the drums was kind of a kicks Child’s Play hybrid band. That was an amazing show. And they played drums last summer at soundstage for the Brian Jack where you and I it was great. It was awesome. But my wife didn’t go to either of those shows. So she showed up and Merriweather for em three at noon. And she’s not like why did we have to get there noon? We were there all day. Right? But it was a long ass day back in May. And we had great seats because sticks left us tickets, you know, right, right at behind the pit. And it was loud, really loud. And he came on to his Brian Jack thing barefoot, but then he got behind the drum kit. And it was really loud. And she’s looking at me she’s like, Oh my God. He plays the drums like that. And I’m like, yeah, man, you know really
Ray Bachman 46:36
good from it to him. He doesn’t know
Nestor Aparicio 46:38
Johnson Johnson when the whole world there. Go on tour. They’re doing
Ray Bachman 46:42
a big tour. He toured with Molly when they were doing SRS sr 71 That way he was Charm City doubles. Okay, right. And I think Nikki six had signed them to their labor
Nestor Aparicio 46:51
sr 71. Was with Bon Jovi.
Ray Bachman 46:53
Yeah, was that Nikki 60? Yep. was challenging.
Nestor Aparicio 46:59
On aroma not not at all honor among they wrote
Ray Bachman 47:02
some hit songs they got. I know Mitch has probably got a couple Grammys, and I know,
Nestor Aparicio 47:06
I told John this story about this. And he doesn’t remember when 1985 1985 I said, I didn’t know he wrote there’s this great song man, you know, sugar ass on the hood of Whitesnake car, you know, she’s still preoccupied with 9085 and I’m sitting there he’s looking at me he’s like, Are you kind of putting me on you know, I’m like, he’s like I wrote
Ray Bachman 47:24
that song until I watched your video. I had no idea either.
Nestor Aparicio 47:27
Well, I hope he’s getting residuals on that. Right Bachmann’s here. I’m gonna give him residual crabcake rip, Pappas and Glenburnie. My longtime friend, Executive Producer, 25 years, lots of pictures, lots of source. I’ll leave with this because before I left with Jentsch, I shared those pictures of you and me with Lennox Lewis and Shan Shan sharp picture with the old host of talk soup. Henson, John Hansen’s, right, John. And then I shared a picture of you and me with John Amos, from Good Times credible after coming to America, the whole deal, knew that boy was that boy was special. So I was looking through all the pictures. And the problem is you’re you and I are aren’t in a lot of pictures together. Because you were the guy taking the pictures. And I said that the chin I’m like, it’s really a shame. I said, but what we always did was I would be there doing the show, you would take a picture of me and Don Shula from three different angles with the mic flags, then you sit back down and do your thing. And then it would be done. And you would say Mr. Shula, can I get a picture with you? And then I grabbed the camera, take a picture of you in Shula, and then you’d be like, Hey, let’s get in here. I’ll get one of you, and then meet on shore, take a picture. So I have all the same pictures. There’s three pictures of me like this. And then there’s one with you, and then one with me. And there’s not one with both of us in it.
Ray Bachman 48:38
There’s that was when we had to get the photos develop.
Nestor Aparicio 48:41
Right here at the photo map by Michaels Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie and by the way, I wanted to begin the show with this but I made a wrong turn coming down here today I got on the 97 sort of force a habit to go into the Bay Bridge. I was gonna tell sewer Pittman this but I didn’t get would mean more to you. I took the 97 ramp and I’m like, gosh, you know, Ritchie, highway MC. And I’m like, alright, I’ll just go down to Baltimore national I could have by Michaels Eighth Avenue. And I got emotional I started thinking about Scott Wagner. And I got off the ramp and I made the left hand turn with a light rail is where Eighth Avenue is and I’m like I’m going to take Eighth Avenue when I went by I went by last week where I got married, where I D I was a house DJ for 100 weddings, the boxing matches concerts he had down there and just how many times I would go down there and just drop by and go up on the second floor and just sit there and talk to him and Mr. Michael like had nothing to do with work and I wasn’t working I was just selling in this area because I used to sell advertising I would drive up and down Richie I were trying to get sponsors all my first sponsors was O tools fireside in Ritchie highway georgia avenue right by the by by Taco Bell right highway right there. And so Wow, I almost like pulled over on the side of the road and just wrote I miss Scott Wagner, like I figured somebody that was
Ray Bachman 50:02
one of the best dudes ever. He was a people person. Like nobody dislikes Scott Wagner. Nobody and, and I mean, my stories are I lived a little bit closer I would get that phone call Brother Ray brother Scott, what do you know? And I would write I need some help with a microphone or some and I’ll be right over and we’d sit there and shoot the
Nestor Aparicio 50:20
I just I drove by and there’s like this. This, the bones of a building are going up the bones of like a four storey kind of looking brick. I don’t know what it’s going to be. It looks like an office
Ray Bachman 50:32
park, right? Or they’re just building it and they don’t even have tenants yet. Okay, it’s just a it’s just a it’s an office, but when I leveled it, I went by and took some videos. And I mean, I I got the DJ, all the Baltimore boxing events for probably two decades. And you know, my prom was there. There was the Glenburnie escape attended my
Nestor Aparicio 50:53
wedding there. Yeah, absolutely. Bernie skate rank. So anyway, Scott Wagner, if I had a drink, I would I would tow Scott Wagner with a non alcoholic drink for Scott, at least for now.
