I need to not say also. Also, if anyone is interested in joining us for the next PCB, it will be this Sunday at 12 and we’ll be discussing college in pop culture.
This Sunday (March 31st) WKCO Presents: Pop Culture Brunch! Alex Borkowski, Hugh Wilikofsky and I (and the rest of our exec staff team) will discuss sports as they are represented in popular culture. We don’t know a lot about sports, but we’re going to try.
Some topics include:
Aaron Sorkin’s “Sports Night” – Why you should watch it (aside from the fact that it will save you about an hour next time you’re trolling Netflix for something to watch).
Underdog stories – Are they really the best? Do they characterize every sports film? Does anyone ever root for the overdog?
What ever happened to the Sandlot kids?
Tune in on Sunday at noon for the answers. Give us a call at 740-427-5411 and let us know what YOU think.
Professor Howard Sacks was interviewed yesterday on John Ciecka’s show, CinemaTalk, about the Kenyon Rural Life Center’s upcoming event, Rural by Design. Did you miss the interview? Don’t fret! It is now available below. In the weeks leading up to the event, WKCO will be playing music by artists featured in the concert. Tune in! Check out the interview below.
