Sometimes we are at the intersection of where sports and music meet. Dummer Slim Jim Phantom of Stray Cats had a Zoom game slated with Drew Carey and joined Nestor to discuss great music and how much we loved the baseball dice board game as kids.
Many local businesses are struggling to survive and very few are actually opening doors during a pandemic. Our pal Evan Brown from State Fare just opened El Guapo in Catonsville and tells us the story of managing and moving forward during a plague.
Over Royal Farms coffee in his Cole Roofing mug, Nestor implores his pal Bill Cole to interpret why anyone would question the veracity or impact of a deadly global pathogen and the safety of others during a plague. But feel free to believe what you want...
Lonesome George was a regular on the I-95 circuit even before Nestor chatted with him as a music critic in the 1980s. This one is more modern. A 2015 visit with the leader of the Delaware Destroyers coming to Pier Six.
This picture was taken in 1989 backstage at Hammerjacks.
