IT ISN'T OFTEN THE POWERS THAT BE here at 640 WHLO let me out of the studio, but this Thursday will be an exception.  The Akron Rubberducks (formerly the Aeros) will open the home portion of their baseball season this Thursday, April 10 at 6:30pm, and I'll broadcast my show live from 9am until noon at the new Game Restaurant inside Canal Park.  We'll have live broadcasts all day at the stadium.  The WKDD morning show will air live from 6 to 9am on 98.1 WKDD.  I'll be live on 640 WHLO from 9 until noon and then we'll feature the Big Time Sports Show featuring Joe Dunn and Tom Linder on FoxSports 1350 all afternoon.  FoxSports 1350 will air all Rubberducks games all year long, including the opener.  I've been to the new restaurant and you'll want to try the Quacker Jacks!  By the way, the weather looks great for the game.  PLAY BALL!

ANOTHER PROGRAMMING NOTE, YOU HAVE a chance to win a buffet for two on Easter Sunday at Menches Brothers in Green.  Just listen for your cue to call, be the correct caller and win!  You also have a chance to win a trip to Los Angeles for the I HeartRadio Music Awards.  We play the game twice each morning.  Just listen for the keyword and text it to 45495.
