WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 4: The night we brought Harbaugh, Tomlin and Billick together to share Super Bowl glory stories

In the aftermath of Jennifer Aparicio’s miraculous survival following a second bone marrow transplant, we were inspired to do a second “Night of Heroes” after leukemia survivor Chuck Pagano came back to Baltimore in 2015 to raise money and awareness for There Goes My Hero and the power of swabbing to save lives. If you missed one of the great nights in Baltimore vs. Pittsburgh sports partnerships in May 2016, you can relive it by watching three Super Bowl winning head coaches on one stage for a great cause. This was also the last public appearance of former Ravens president David Modell, who had some very important words, as did Super Bowl XXXV champion James Trapp, who also survived leukemia. A powerful evening.

WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 12: The legend of the first great tailgate in San Diego

It sounds like heresy but last century, “tailgating” was illegal in Baltimore. (You kids can look it up!) In 1996, when the Ravens came to the Charm City, David Modell set out to change those laws and in 1997 when the first purple trip San Diego took 200 “Nasty Nestor” listeners to Jack Murphy Stadium, we met some Chargers fans in the parking lot and made some memories. There were many, many roadtrips and more beer, sandwiches and fried chicken consumed along many highways with Gunther buses but this virgin voyage in a town that the NFL has now forgotten was truly unforgettable.

WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 24 – The legend of our purple live shows at The Barn – and beyond

If you ever participated in or witnessed a decade of fun times, live radio shows and Baltimore sports memories with us at The Barn on Harford Road back in the 1990s when WNST was birthed by the local community, then you know it’ll never be replicated. Go through the photos and see how many legends you can identify who spent time eating crabs, drinking beer and talking sports with us – and you – in Parkville. As John Steadman once said: “Didn’t we have some good times?” What’s your favorite memory of a WNST live event over these 25 years of awesomeness? The night we brought the Lombardi Trophy by in the aftermath of Super Bowl XXXV didn’t suck.
