John Brazer Stops By The Matt Cord Show With Steve Vassalotti
Yesterday, a great buddy of mine stopped by the studio to make his first official appearance on The Matt Cord Show With Steve Vassalotti. Many of you know him as the Director of Fun and Game for the Philadelphia Phillies, or you might remember the name from some of my previous posts – But none other than, John Brazer, stopped by the WMGK studio on Wednesday!
We chatted with John Brazer about the Fightin’ Phils in the midst of the final stretch run of the regular season and their upcoming postseason as they prepare for the MLB Playoffs. We are all hoping for another run to the World Series – and for them to hopefully finish the job this time!
John Brazer has actually been coming on the MGK morning show for years now, and he is just an amazing radio guest! So I was stoked to have him on our show within the first couple of weeks of us officially broadcasting!
Funnily enough, I have known JB for over 30 years. In fact, at one point in our lives, we were next-door neighbors in the city! There are way too many stories to tell that took place during those days – a lot of which would not be the most appropriate to tell on-air, probably!
Here’s a look at both of us back in 1998, along with a familiar face, Preston Eliot, from our sister station WMMR, at the Rex Hudler Golf Outing. Hudler was a member of the Phillies that year, and his outing took place at the Waynesborough Golf Club in Paoli. And, yes, We’ve all gotten better looking over the years!
Anyway, while visiting us yesterday, John gave us a pair of tickets to giveaway on-air today for the Phillies vs. Pirates game on Wednesday, September 27th!
So I want to send a huge shout-out to John Brazer for that, and let’s get ready for a Red October!
