What's are the Stanley Cup finals if you can't have a little fun with the whole thing. That's certainly what the city's most popular sports talk outlet WSCR-AM (670) and sister station WIP-AM (610) in Philadelphia intend to do in the lead-up to the first Stanley Cup finals game between the Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday. WIP midday hosts Anthony Gargano and Glen Macnow will join the Score's Dan McNeil and co-host Matt Spiegel to engage in some friendly jousting about the big event on Friday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
The show, which will be simulcast on both radio outlets, will originate at Murphy's Bleachers, 3653 N. Sheffield. The broadcast is free and open to the public and will be streamed live on www.610wip.com and www.670thescore.com. "It's time for two legendary radio stations to drop the gloves," said WIP's Gargano, adding "we're feeling Flyerish." Whatever that is!? As for McNeil, he said: "We look forward to welcoming our guests from Philadelphia. To make them feel at home, we've ordered fog similar to the one that blinded Randall Cunningham and the Eagles in the NFC Divisional Playoff Game in '88."
