MBR Radio to podcast from Agganis Games

Sport:   Posted: July 14th, 2008 by Tom Nolette

MBR On The Air will venture out into the high school community Wednesday night when Danny Ventura welcomes guests at the annual Agganis Games football contest at Manning Bowl.

Mike Shalin will be at the Marina Bay studios of 1510 The Zone, anchoring the 5-7 broadcast, with Ventura on the scene in Lynn securing callers for the hotline. Ventura will then be part of a web broadcast of the game as MBR reaches out into the field.

The Agganis football game is a big event on the North Shore and we wanted to be part of it,” Shalin said. “There are some logistics to work out but we’ll get it done.

This will be an exciting next step for us. We’re excited.”

Chick-fil-A, a new sponsor of the program, will be on hand in Lynn, handing food certificates.

The show completed its sixth week on the air Saturday with Watertown boys’ basketball coach Steve Harrington in the studio for the second hour.  Harrington’s team was a Division III sectional champ this past season, a year after winning the state title.

Shalin and Ventura were also joined on the air via the hotline by Masco receiver/defensive back Dom Bavaro, who will be playing in the game Wednesday, new Barnstable boys’ basketball coach Gerry McDowell and Bay State Games director Kevin Cummings.

Cummings will also be on the next two shows, with the Games ending next weekend.

Anyone interested in advertising on the show – and in the planned Ultimate Guidebook that will be given to the schools for use in fundraisers, can contact Shalin at Shales@mbr.org.

PEABODY’S ALLISON ON THE WAY BACK, MBR celebrates Lowell mat title

July 9, 2008

Former Peabody High School star Jeff Allison joined Wednesday’s MBR On The Air program that also paid tribute to the legendary Lowell High wrestling team on the continuing Summer of Champions on 1510 The Zone.

Allison, writing an inspirational comeback story as a recovering addict getting a second chance from the Florida Marlins, joined Mike Shalin and Danny Ventura at the start of the second hour of the program – via the hotline from Jupiter, Fla.

He spoke openly about his daily battle to overcome the problems that kept him out of the game he plays so well, thanking the people who have helped him along the way.

“We all have to wish him nothing but the best,” Shalin said. “He was a legendary athlete in high school but what he’s doing now will make him even more of a legend. He is fighting the battle and gives every indication he’s going to make it.”

Both Shalin and Ventura lauded Allison’s openness and courage as he travels the long road back.

Lowell wrestling coach Tim O’Keefe, who is 5-for-5 in state titles (there was no official winner in 2006 but Ventura made it clear it should have been Lowell), was at the Marina Bay studio for the show’s first hour. He is coaching a program that currently owns 16 state titles and five New England crowns.

New St. Mary’s football coach Matt Durgin and new Winthrop girls’ basketball coach Dave Nagle were also on the phone, as was Paul Halloran of the Agganis Games – and Dusty Pyne, owner of the Chick-fil-A at the Northshore Mall, a new sponsor of the program. Pyne told listeners anyone mentioning the program at his restaurant Thursday would get a free sandwich.

Halloran will re-join the guys Saturday for a continuing preview of the Agganis Games and members of the show staff will be attending the Agganis football game after next Wednesday’s show.
