Greeting OAKLAND Athletics fans:
As many of you know by now, our cast has grown to 7 members with the additions of two more cast members. Dennis “Diesel” Biles, who will serve as a host, our press journalist (along with Will and my wife Kristy) once we obtain a press pass and will also team up with Will to bring you “Random Sports Facts”. Dennis is studying journalism at San Jose State University.
Our other new cast member is Daniel “Taco” Wolfe. Daniel, along with myself and other members of the cast, will take care of updating this and the Facebook page. Taco also runs athleticsonbase.com as well as the Athletics On Base Facebook page.
Some of you have also started to see info roll out on when the Relaunch show will take place. For those that have missed out on the posts all over Facebook for who knows what reasons, the tentative Relaunch Show will take place on Oct. 27th at a location TBA. We will have have at least 5 members of our cast on that night as we wait on word from when Chris Dobbins will return from his trip to Larnica, Cyprus.
Along with this tentative date, we also have a list of guests that have agreed to come on the show at some point between now and Spring Training. The list so far includes:
Marvin Horn: Actor who plays A’s fan favorite Terrence Long in the movie “Moneyball
Art Ortiz: Actor who plays A’s fan favorite Eric Chavez in the movie “Moneyball”
Oakland Tribune columnist Dave Newhouse
Sports broadcaster Rick Tittle
Former Oakland A’s Post-Game host and current Country Fastball host Robert Buan
As off-season news comes into the picture, we will post links to news articles as they come out on the Facebook page as well links on the Facebook page to our own reviews of the moves on here.
Once Dobbins is back, we will also be able to give you more information on The Green Stampede’s Haunted House @ Chris’ old frathouse on the UC Berkeley campus. Also, along with show favorites like the Chris Dobbins Ma’ma Joke of the Week, the Wolrd Famous Weather Report and the new Random Sports Facts, one more new segment for the show is what for now is being dubed as “The Battle of Block”, in which I will square off with my long time friend & Giants fan Javi in a battle of words over who’s team is better.
So stay tuned for more info on these events & more on your #1 source for everything & anything on your OAKLAND Athletics, A’S FAN RADIO.
