Ray Horner Podcast - 2/4/2019

:17 - In a real barn-burner of a Super Bowl, the Patriots defeated the Rams, 13-3, in the lowest scoring game in its 53 contests. Ray, Tony, and Jeanne talked about all aspects of the big game, including the contest itself, the commercials, and the halftime show.

15:15 - Last week, Barberton mayor Bill Judge came on to discuss some layoffs happening in his city. Well, things took a positive turn over the weekend, as the city was able to work on some figures and avoid those layoffs, and Mayor Judge talked about how this was accomplished and what’s to come.

22:11 - It’s Monday, and Miller’s Rental & Sales is our Business of the Week! Brought to you by HEARINC. and TLC Catering.

35:16 - And finally, Ray and Tony talked more about the Super Bowl Halftime Show, which has become quite the spectacle over the decades. Ray contends it was a good decision to have Maroon 5, a mainstream pop band, perform, but Tony thinks no one can be pleased and may as well just have marching bands take the stage.

Ray Horner Podcast - 2/1/2019

:17 - With Sunday being the Super Bowl, Friday’s show had plenty of football themes. Ray and Tony talked about the top ten football movies of all time, with some honorable mentions just off the list.

7:26 - But not everything about football was positive. Malone University is dropping intercollegiate football as a cost-cutting measure, as the college has a $2.5 million structural deficit to contend with. Charlie Grimes, athletic director at Malone, joined the show to discuss the decision to cease football operations.

13:37 - If you’re of a certain age, you may remember a nightclub in the Akron area called Red’s. It may have closed in 1988, but its legacy lives on through owner Arnie Shapiro, who turned 95 this week.

17:29 - Temperatures have been rather frigid this week, with the highs being in negative digits the middle of the week. Ren Camacho, the new president and CEO of the Akron-Canton Airport, called in to discuss how the airport deals with such bone-chilling conditions.

24:04 - As we wrap up this podcast and the week, the Akron Beacon Journal’s Bob Dyer and former NFL player Jay Brophy stopped by studio for some old Super Bowl memories from yesteryear. Brophy played in Super Bowl XIX, where his Miami Dolphins got trounced by the San Francisco 49ers.
