Orlando & The Freakshow

Weekdays 6AM - 10AM

Tampa fans we have potention QB1, Baker Mayfield’s Message to Tampa Bay!  As a Buccaneer fan, I’m always excited for the beginning of a new season. Vying for QB1 can’t start until the ink is on the paper.  It is! We’ve been in our current, underestimated state much longer than the glory years, so this is familiar.  We kinda like being counted out by the professional yappers.  Talk that talk, #6! Baker Mayfield’s Message to Tampa Bay is below.  And so it begins.

Fans Know How to Keep It Positive

Baker Mayfield is about to turn 28 years old  and that equates to youth.  If he can perform, this may be our chance for the most consistent spot over the next 4 or 5 seasons.   Bucs quarterbacks have mostly been well into their 30’s.   Short of Shaun King (23) and Josh Freeman (21) our best at the position have been a little older.  Brady hit 90 years old, didn’t he? Okay, 45, but still! Brad Johnson, our other Superbowl winning QB was 34 when he hoisted Lombardi.  Jeff Garcia took a shot after his stints in San Francisco, Cleveland, Detroit, and Philly, and got the Buc’s spot at 37.

Same Swagger – Different Man

If this was the Baker that went to Cleveland, coming to Tampa (with all that the Bay offers a young, impressionable gent), I’d be worried.  However this version of the QB is a husband of 4 years, with Emily Wilkinson, and that can keep him centered.  There was a lot of pressure on those young, Cleveland shoulders.  After Carolina didn’t pan out, Baker had some serious fight for the the Rams.  That had to help his case in making it here to Tampa.

More Importantly – What Do We Call Him

Around the radio ranch, we’ve started calling the QB “Shake N Bake“.  Don’t like that one?

Okay some of our gospel lovers are leaning on “Bake 6“.  Huh?  Nice melody?

Whatever we call him, I hope its protected behind our O-Line or we’ll be calling him Screamin’ B!

Hip Hop Shows Coming To Tampa

Tampa is celebrating the 50th birthday of this culture so we’re letting you in on hip hop shows coming to Tampa. There are many crayons in this box. The vibe and flavor reaches into pop mc’s like Bryce Vine and even in the R&B groups like New Edition. Bell Biv DeVoe ooze the culture and let’s not forget Bobby Brown.

I was always told people rap but hip hop is the life around the art. Makes a lot of sense. It isn’t something we do but it is something that we live.  There was a time where the offerings were limited but not these days. Take a look at hip hop shows coming to Tampa and choose where you’ll say happy birthday hip hop.

    Bryce Vine, the Cali singer and rapper is famous for landing a couple of hits on the Billboard Hot 100.  Both came from his debut CD “Carnival“.  You may have bumped “Drew Barrymore” and “La La Land” since both were pretty active on social media.  Check out Bryce at Jannus Live.

  • Onyx - April 13th

    Onyx, consisting of rapper/actor duo Fredro Starr and Sticky Fingaz, put their stamp on 90’s hip hop with hit’s like “Slam” and “Shut Em Down“. Onyx is loud, brash and certainly hip hop. With TV and movie placement, their personalities have rivaled their music. However, as I’m typing this, a commercial for Progessive is playing “Slam” right now.  Happy birthday hip hop!  30th anniversary of “Bacdafucup” hits Brass Mug 1450 Skipper Rd.

    Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky, Mike, Ralph and Johnny make up the 6 man, 3.0 version of R&B supergroup New Edition. They began as a young, hip, singing group.

Amalie Arena – with Keith Sweat, Guy and Tank.

    Hard Rock joins the celebration of Hip Hop with a pool party so big that they’re covering one of their humongous pools. Probably a good thing with Nas and Wu-Tang turning up and the casino in September.
