The Zone


3/29/2013 2:03 PM


 The Zone was live Friday from Oaklawn, the racing and gaming capital of Arkansas! Nobody knows Oaklawn quite like Terry Wallace. Terry recently retired as track announcer after 37 seasons and has been called "one of the most recognizable voices in Arkansas". In his time in the booth he called over 20,000 consecutive races, never missing a day at the track.  

We were joined by the Pigskin Preacher and being his first trip to beautiful Oaklawn he had to make it official by trying the famous corned beef sandwiches.

 Both Sophmore Bj Young and Junior Marshawn Powell have said they are leaving the Razorbacks for the NBA draft. We took some calls discussing this news.  

Robbie Neiswanger from the Arkansas News Bureau called in. We talked to Robbie about Razorback Baseball, the NCAA tournament, and got his take on the news about Bj and Marshawn. 

 Playing at the Rev Room tonight, is Boom Kinetic. We talk to Wiley Seeger about the show and the new album coming out.  They play Friday night at 9pm and I promise you two things.  It will be rocking with a ton of great scenery and you will enjoy the show they put on for you.  Enjoy seeing them for a low price while you can because these dudes are gonna hit it BIG soon.

 While at the track, Jeff "Money" Taylor sat down with us and shared his picks for the day.

Race 1) #2 DynamicNight

Race 2) #6 IfoundmyMojo

Longshot Race 4) #5 Barham

Feature Race 9) #8 Sashabye 

 Coming up Monday we will be joined by Chris Kane from KATV. We will talk gameballs and jockstraps, recap Razorback baseball, the NCAA, and talk to Doug Brodess from Bleacher Report. Thanks for listening to THE ZONE from 10 to 1!
