Join our Ravens roadtrip journey to Nashville for Nestor’s 50th birthday weekend whiskey celebration

Posted on 26 April 2018 by WNST Trips

Our Nashville 2018 adventure is already special because it’s Nestor’s 50th birthday on October 14th so we’re only taking 50 folks on this incredible trip.

We will depart from BWI to Nashville (with a short layover in Atlanta) via Southwest Airlines on Saturday morning and arrive before 11 a.m. – early  enough to enjoy all that the Music City has to offer from our downtown hotel.

Our Quality Inn at The Stadium hotel is uniquely positioned in the parking lot next to the Titans stadium. It is a short walk over the riverbridge to downtown and you’ll be walking distance from virtually everything you’ll want to do in Nashville. It was also completely remodeled last year!

On Sunday, you’ll wake up less than a football field from the Titans-Ravens game and have the evening free after the game to rest up for a great adventure. On Monday, we’ll be whisked to Nestor’s favorite breakfast restaurant Monell’s in Germantown and then we’ll arrive at the Jack Daniels distillery and tour center in Lynchburg, Tennessee around 11 a.m. to tour the facility. We will return to our hotel in Nashville before 5 p.m. so you can have one final night exploring the Music City.

This trip is going to sell out quickly because we’re only taking 50 people on this special 50th birthday trip.

Please email Nestor (nasty@wnst.net) if you need any more details but we’d love to celebrate with you in Nashville.

Roundtrip airfare from BWI-Nasvhille

Three nights hotel at Quality Inn Nashville Downtown Stadium

Upper game ticket for Ravens-Titans

The day that David Bowie and I talked about spirituality, God and Ziggy Stardust

Posted on 12 January 2016 by Nestor Aparicio

I had just turned 23 years old and David Bowie was calling on my home phone.

He called “collect.”

It was November 1991 – about six weeks before I began my sports radio career.

Many of you don’t know about my previous “Almost Famous” life where I spent lots of time with rock and roll musicians at The Baltimore Sun. Here’s some evidence. I have more than 125 of these Cameron Crowe-esque gems in my personal vault that I’ll be unveiling in summer of 2016. I’ll list them below the audio so you can send along some requests.

The Thin White Duke and I discussed spirituality, god and Ziggy Stardust. His band, Tin Machine, was doing the heaviest music of his career.

Strangely enough, I call him “nasty” ten minutes into it.

Bowie was happy, playful and this thing was a joy to listen to a quarter of a century later. My interviewing style was far too jumpy and green, so please pardon my inexperience (and red-faced embarrassment) in presenting this #Nestalgia25 moment.

At one point, David Bowie called me a journalist.

He was being very, very kind…
