It was a long time coming and thankfully, our first Podcast came off with only a few minor phone glitches. We learned that Verizon cell service is better than Sprint in South Jersey and thank Rachel, Josh and Jared (with his adorable 8-month old baby daughter) for letting us use their phones to call our guests. To show what a "family" our listeners have become, Jared even had Jose from Norristown's number already in his phone!
Want to thank all of the wonderful people who jammed into the Jughandle Inn on a Monday night. Familiar faces like Patty Tyson Purks, Tony Solorzano from LA, Big Tone(Sepielli) and his buddies, Aaron Cohen, Phil di Carlo, who bought my old sofa, Jim from Cheltenham and so many Twitter friends who we finally got to meet and have some "Grape Gatorades" with after the show. Joe @Corrado_19 was our first ever "twitter legend" to sit down and be a major contributor/co host and he was brilliant! Even finally got to meet @FakeCoatsey who is another one of our twitter gold contributors. Can't forget the beautiful Crystal at the main bar who is simply amazing as a bartender and cheerful human.
Miss Robin Austin and I had lots of editing to do due to the the phone issues, but finally at 3am, we got it done and posted for all to hear. I was pleasantly surprised at the audio quality and the phone issues will be all fixed for our next show.
Lucky to have great friends who called in as guests for the maiden voyage as well. My former Fox Sports Radio morning Extravaganza co-host Andrew Siciliano who is killing it on the "Red Zone" channel and the NFL network in LA. David Boreanaz from the hit show "Bones" on Fox heading into an amazing 10th season. No bigger hockey fan in the entertainment business than David. My bud Brian Baldinger checked in on NFL talk and Kyle Scott from CrossingBroad.com was on the scene to update us on the off the field action in and around the Sunday Night Football game at Lincoln Financial Field. Plus, we had to have an appearance from the great Jose from Norristown who always delights the crowd with his signature "What Up! salutation.
And also must truly thank the sponsors who made it possible. Kevin Stone of the www.jughandleinn.net, who has always been awesome to us and even gave away a Darren Sproles Jersey in our pop-up trivia quiz. The fine folks at Aversa Bakery, The choice of so many businesses and families. www.AversaBakery.com for info on all they offer, including prepared Italian speciality foods, catering and holiday gift baskets. And also have to thank Mike Fitzpatrick at Keller Williams. His team serving 13 counties in PA and NJ and can help you sell or buy your home www.MikeFitzpatrickHomes.com
