This morning, I walked into what can only be described as the barbershop scene from Eddie Murphy’s, “Coming to America.” The Sports Shop, with Reese and K-Mac on WDNC-AM, Buzz Sports Radio in Raleigh-Durham, NC. is the highest rated morning-drive sports talk show in the country hosted by two African-Americans. Ah, … actually, it’s the only one in the country, hosted by two African-Americans! I gotta give these guys props man. They are entertaining as hell. Quick, colorful, comic banter, without the dry, stat filled, who’s on the DL list B.S. you hear on the other sports talk shows. This is a sports radio talk show FOR THE FANS and I give it my highest recommendation!
The show airs weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. ET. Here is a link to a news article describing our show (http://raleighco.com/media-circus/sports-shop-assumes-rare-sports-talk-spot-for-black-hosts/).
This June, The Sports Shop will be celebrating its 6th anniversary! Congratulations K-Mac (Kevin McClendon) and Reese (Erroll Reese)! Well Done!

If you didn’t get a chance to come out to the Baltimore Comedy Factory this past week, (March 29 – 31) then here’s a little taste of what you missed.
Two completely sold out shows, packed with spring feverish fans on a full moon weekend. Well… it sure felt like a full moon with some of the Factory’s most ruckus crowds ever! Standing ovations every show and some of the best raw comedy by C.J. and Alabama,

Special thanks to Mickey, Amelia and Spiegel on 98 Rock. (Mickey made me laugh the hardest I’ve ever laughed on air.)
Shout out to the folks at Fox 45 News for a memorable segment that had people stopping Greg on the street and in the grocery store!
