After 16 years with the Baltimore Ravens, punter Sam Koch retired from the NFL this week. Luke Jones and Nestor sat down for their final "Ravens Live Show" ever with No. 4 and talked about his life in the land of Big Red.
Don challenges Nestor's assertion that all of those original PSL owners have given way to the new group of people who will need to buy those (increasingly expensive) tickets in the purple stadium that their mothers and fathers built a generation ago. The tailgate has changed...
Mardi Gras during pandemic came and went but at least the cuisine of the Cajun soul was fed. Todd Schuler spent some formative years on the Bayou but can't get Nestor enthused about that nasty King Cake...
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?
This picture was taken in 1989 backstage at Hammerjacks. Locally born and bred drummer Steve Gorman (on right in Orioles orinthologically correct hat) will take over the story from there in the aftermath of his best-selling book on the history of the notoriously infamous Black Crowes and life with The Brothers Robinson.
If you remember the last day at Memorial Stadium in 1991, then you need to meet the architect. Longtime baseball public relations leader Rick Vaughn remembers 33rd Street and the leadership of an Orioles front office legend.
Bottom line: some of Nestor's favorite songs were written by this guy. Yours, too! If you love music – Kiss, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Michael Bolton, Kelly Clarkson, Ricky Martin, Alice Cooper – this is the man behind the words.
It's been a while since Caps historian Ed Frankovic dropped by to talk hockey and playoffs with Nestor. As the Islanders play into June, this one got spicy three years after a Stanley Cup parade in D.C. and the Leonsis lies about bringing the chalice to Baltimore.
