   Let the games begin!

   MBR On The Air – Shales and Danny V. Talking High School Sports – has finished its first three months On The Air and Wednesday welcomed the return of the football season with its preview show on 1510 The Zone.

   Adam Kurkjian of the Metrowest Daily News and Milford Daily News, was in studio with Mike Shalin and Dan Ventura as the trio looked at the start of the season, which was just 48 hours away.

   “The Summer of Champions was great for us, great for the kids and their families and great for the coaches,” Shalin said. “Now, it’s time for the games and we can’t wait for our first Saturday morning show.”

   On The Air will return Saturday morning to discuss the first night of games and look ahead at what is going on that day.
   Anyone who is at any game is always welcome to call and let us know what you saw – 617-237-1234. You can also e-mail shales@mbr.org.

   Other fall sports will work their way into the mix, usually on Wednesday nights, but there will be steady news on whatever is going on in the world of high school athletics.

   “We’ll have it all covered,” said Ventura. “The AD’s have let us know they’ll do anything they can to help.”

   St. John’s Prep football coach Jim O’Leary led a hotline parade that also included Scott Fry (Plymouth South), Mike Athanas (Manchester-Essex), Tom Pileski (Coyle-Cassidy), Kevin Bradley (Whittier) and Al Costabile (Shawsheen), the last two good pals appearing together.

   The first annual No Player Left Behind charity golf tournament will take place Oct. 2 at the Presidents Golf Club in Quincy. For information on playing, sponsoring a hole, or helping out any way you can, contact Joe Martone at joe@mbr.org.

    No Player Left Behind is our non-profit arm, which provides funds to kids (and even programs) short on cash as they attempt to compete.

   There’s still time for you to join our fast-growing list of advertisers and make it into our first Ultimate Sports Guide Book, which will feature rosters, schedules and other goodies about your favorite team. Contact us at sales@mbr.org.

   “Our count is 26 teams on 26 days, although math was never one of my best subjects,” Mike Shalin said after he, Danny Ventura and guest co-host Steve Sviontek welcomed coach Steve O’Neill and players Nicole D’Argento, Kylene Pease, Erin Gilfoy and Lindsay Shorey to the Marina Bay studios of 1510 The Zone. “We were thrilled to have all these kids with us this summer and will a lot more in the future, but it’s going to be tough for any to be more fun than this group.”

   The Clockers, who beat Hudson to win the title, even came armed with their own version of “We Are The Champions,” which the girls sung On The Air.

   The second hour featured hotline visits with Acton-Boxboro championship field hockey coach Mae Shoemaker, who just returned from Beijing, where she watched her son Jarrod, compete in the Olympic Triathlon.

    Also joining the guys was local broadcasting mainstay Mike Logan and Adam Kurkjian of the Metrowest Daily News. Kurkjian will be in studio for the two-hour football show, this Wednesday from 5-7.

   Sviontek joined Shalin and Ventura after winning a silent auction at the Foxborough Relay For Life (to benefit cancer research) in June. He did a fine job On The Air, even reading the on-air commercial for Strike One in Danvers.

   The first annual No Player Left Behind charity golf tournament will take place Oct. 2 at the Presidents Golf Club in Quincy. For information on playing, sponsoring a hole, or helping out any way you can, contact Joe Martone at joe@mbr.org.

    No Player Left Behind is our non-profit arm, which provides funds to kids (and even programs) short on cash as they attempt to compete.
