Listen above for the first of 10 commercial-free hours on 98.5 The Sports Hub from Toucher and Rich. Here's how this hour breaks down:
-- 11:10 - 51:55: The best (and worst) of '98 Mile'
-- 52:00 - 1:00:55: Jon Wallach reads a fake ad for 'Shazowie's Mystical Wonderland'
The majority of the hour focuses on the station's semi-annual rap battle tournament known as '98 Mile'. The guys go back and listen to some of the best raps, including a particularly biting roast-a-thon between Michael Felger and Andy Gresh. They also replay some of the low points of '98 Mile', including one from our former colleague Adam Kaufman that ... well they couldn't even get through the whole thing.
Closing out the hour is one of Fred's favorite moments in the history of the show, a prank he and Rich pulled on Jon Wallach in the early years of T&R on 98.5. Listen as Wallach does a fake ad read for the fictitious magic shop "Shazowie's Mystical Wonderland", a clip that Rich described as the moment Wallach officially became a member of the show.
We're going to re-live some of the Sports Hub's best moments until 5 p.m. on Tuesday as the station celebrates 10 great, successful years on the air. Be sure to keep listening live to hear more classic moments, commercial-free.
