Ray Horner Podcast - 12/14/2018

:17 - We lost a local legend on Thursday at the age of 79. Don Webster worked at WEWS/Channel 5 for 35 years, hosting the famed shows Upbeat, The Morning Exchange, and Academic Challenge, and was a personable weatherman throughout his tenure. Ray and Tony reflected on Don’s life.

6:07 - So long, Edwin Encarnacion, and so long, parrotheads. Encarnacion and Yandy Diaz got packaged in a three-team trade that ended up bringing back longtime catcher and first baseman Carlos Santana. Is this a blockbuster move? The panel doesn’t think so.

11:29 - Scott Wynn stopped by to chat about the movies opening up, and what’s happening in the world of entertainment. Ralph Breaks the Internet still tops the charts, and there’s a new PG-13 Deadpool flick.

13:47 - We keep things a bit light on Fridays. And speaking of Fridays, let’s talk restaurants, specifically forgotten restaurants from yesteryear. Remember Rax? Bennigan’s? Bob’s Big Boy? Chi-Chi’s? Arthur Treacher’s? Damon’s? Blimpie? York Steak House? Tony Roma’s? All of these were discussed.

27:06 - Dan Flowers called into the program to talk about the Akron-Canton Foodbank and what’s happening around the holidays.
