    Ben Maller: Clippers, Lakers, Dodgers and Life

    Ben Maller: Clippers, Lakers, Dodgers and Life

    I'm fortunate to call Ben Maller a friend. He does overnights on Fox Sports Radio. And while he is a success overnights -- he’s not an overnight success. Ben’s been at this for more than 20 years -- including being a pioneer in the blogging arena. We start off talking about his Clippers and our Dodgers, what the Angels need to do to get Mike Trout and Shohei Otani into the playoffs, we talk LeBron James and the Lakers, but also discuss the losses we’ve suffered in the last 7 months: my wife, and his dad.

    PJ Butta: The Nightcap

    PJ Butta: The Nightcap

    PJ Butta is an LA hip hop radio icon from the 92.3 The Beat days in the 90’s to now doing afternoons on the legendary KDAY. In addition to his on-air work he teaches broadcasting, runs his own podcast network, and pours The Nightcap weeknights at 8pm Pacific / 11pm Eastern on IG Live playing slow jams in front of the fireplace — using that platform to help people in need. All this fresh off of his 11-day battle with COVID. We discuss his inspiration for The Nightcap, the future of radio/audio, and he ranks his top 3 bourbons.

NurseDeezy ,

Enjoy the Format, Glad your back

I subscribed immediately when I saw you are back. Your vulnerability and humility is refreshing. I missed listening to you and always loved your style. Prayers to you and your daughters. I am sorry for your loss, but by the grace of God it seems like you have found a way to slowly heal and figure it out. One day at a time. There are many out there who are in your corner. I know we are!
