We spoke with Nick Giglia from Let There Be Lighthouse regarding the upcoming August 1st Referendum on the "new" Nassau Coliseum.  As you can guess from his website, Nick is urging a "Yes" vote on the topic.

Full Disclosure: We invited County Executive Edward Mangano (heard nothing) and Islanders Senior Vice President Michael Picker (also heard nothing) on the Yes--vote side.  We invited ABLI Executive Director Desmond Ryan (heard back immediately from his PR person Gary Lewi, but never again) and Nassau County Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs (heard nothing, but was immediately added to their mailing list!) on the No--vote side.

The interview is approximately 45 commercial-free minutes in MP3 format.

Chris Botta, former VP of Communications for the New York Islanders, now runs an independent Blog called Islanders Point Blank which is also affiliated with Fanhouse and SNY.  Chris was with the team for 20 years, years that included Mike Milbury, John Spano and the Gang of Four (should I go on?).  So, obviously, Chris is uniquely qualified to give his thoughts on all things Islanders and to regale us with stories of the sometimes sublime, sometimes ridiculous, history of the team.

Chris was kind enough to give Sports Talk an EXCLUSIVE when he read from e-mails that he received from John Spano from Federal Prison.  The interview is 49+ commercial-free minutes in MP3 format.  You can follow Chris on Twitter, too.

2010 METS SEASON PREVIEW WITH ADAM RUBIN, Part 2

 

 

Long-time Mets beat reporter Adam Rubin flew up from Port St. Lucie to give us 2 commercial-free hours of nothing but Mets talk.

Adam will be moving on from the New York Daily News to another exciting, but not officially-announced place in 2 weeks.  He will remain on the Mets beat, though.

In this interview, Adam talks about how this Mets team is the closest team he has covered in his 8 years on the beat, his very nice Spring Training dinner with Omar Minaya, how things are looking up for the farm system and in a totally tongue-in-cheek moment, mentions that his new contract is actually longer than Omar's.....

In a serious moment, Adam also takes the time to thank the Daily News for all the great years that he had there, and because he was not allowed to say goodbye on his blog, gets the chance to say goodbye via our show.  But, like I said, Adam's not going anywhere.  We'll get to read his Mets coverage for many years to come.

You can also watch the whole video of this show at
