The Bear Raid presented by Tightwad Hill

A podcast over a decade in the making…..

Since the return of A’s Fan Radio in 2011, the fan produced podcast has feature a segment on it dedicated to covering Cal Football and other Cal Athletics sports called “The Bear Raid”. Even prior to that, 30th Governor of Tightwad Hill & AFR Producer Keith Salminen and 29th Governor of Tightwad Tad Dellinger III have kicked around the idea of a 24/7 podcast/internet radio station dedicated to covering Cal Athletics produced & hosted by Cal fans and (possibly) former Cal Student Athletes, the idea being dubbed “Bear Raid Radio”. On 11/15/2020, the start of that journey to “Bear Raid Radio” began with the debut broadcast of The Bear Raid Presented by Tightwad Hill!

Until Tightwad Hill relaunches a new official website, AFR will host the links to past recordings of The Bear Raid on this page. To keep up to date on future editions of The Bear Raid as well as the latest news pertaining to Tightwad Hill, visit &/or follow @tightwadhill23 on Twitter.
