See the Ravens play on WNST Purple Roadtrip to New Orleans (Nov. 22-25)

Posted on 21 May 2014 by WNST Trips

So glad you’re planning on joining us for a weekend of Bayou fun as the Ravens and the purple fan base return to New Orleans, scene of the Super Bowl XLVII victory.

We have two different itineraries to choose from – and both include 3 nights hotel in New Orleans on this legendary trip back to Louisiana.

Early Trip (Saturday through Tuesday): Our WNST flights from BWI on Southwest Airlines depart on Saturday afternoon and return on Tuesday morning.

Late Trip (Sunday through Wednesday): Our WNST flights from BWI on Southwest Airlines depart at 5:35 p.m. on Sunday and return on Wednesday at 5:40 a.m.

We’ll be staying at the Courtyard by Marriott near the Convention Center, within blocks of the casino, Bourbon Street and all of the great sights and sounds of the Crescent City.

On Sunday, we’ll be hosting an NFL viewing party for Ravens fans in the French Quarter and enjoying the Cajun food.

On Monday, WNST will be hosting a massive purple brunch cruise on the famous Natchez Riverboat on the Mississippi River and we’ll stage a giant outdoor tailgate along the riverfront (just like last time). All of our travellers will be aboard the boat for the best pre-game “tailgate” in Ravens road trip history.

Here’s a video of the last march we did in New Orleans in February 2013:

So, my beautiful wife Jenn was diagnosed with leukemia last week…

So, my beautiful wife Jenn was diagnosed with leukemia last week…

Posted on 24 March 2014 by Nestor Aparicio

Needless to say it’s been a whirlwind week in my life and if you’ve reached this blog you know that my wife Jennifer has been diagnosed with leukemia and is at Johns Hopkins Hospital giving cancer one helluva fight over the next month and beyond.

To say that we’ve been overwhelmed by the kindness, generosity and sheer humanity of all of the love bestowed upon us over the last three days would be a complete understatement. It was completely unexpected and we’ll never forget this crazy period in our lives.

You have inspired us and made us stronger and even more committed through your caring, thoughtful words and the offers we’ve received from every corner of our lives. The acts, words and gestures have left us feeling truly humbled.

A month ago we were in Brisbane, Australia seeing Bruce Springsteen and my wife woke up the next morning with an insect bite (we think it was a spider) on her right hand. Two days later it swelled and started to throb. By the time we got to Fiji for our final two days on the beach, she had her hand exclusively in a bucket of ice.

We flew for nearly 36 hours to get home and between the flight, jet lag and general fatigue, she began to feel bad a few days later. On March 12, she went to she her doctor with some deep pain under her right armpit. We were worried about breast cancer and all sorts of bad things.

The docs said it was a swollen lymph node and gave her an antibiotic to fight the infection. The next day she went through a battery of tests – mammogram, X rays and blood work to make sure it wasn’t more serious. On the afternoon of Wednesday, March 19 she reported back to the doctors who had long faces of concern when we arrived. They handed us a box of face masks and told us to go to the emergency room at Johns Hopkins right away because her white blood cell count was dangerously low. After five hours in the ER, she was admitted and spent the most of the overnight giving blood and getting tested.

At 8 a.m. the next morning, while filling in for Drew Forrester on fumes of sleep, I announced that was coming back onto the radio every day from 3 til 6 p.m. at WNST.net & AM 1570 with a new radio show called “The Happy Hours.” I also released Chapter 1 of The Peter Principles, a book I’ve been working on for almost five months.

The “comeback,” set for April 1st, was something we’ve been planning together for nearly six months.

Nine hours later, at 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 20, a doctor entered her hospital room at Hopkins and dropped the biggest bombshell of our lives: “I’m really sorry to tell you that you’ve got leukemia and you’re not going to be leaving the hospital for a long time.”

Family, work, friends, goals and dreams – all of it would have to be addressed and put on hold or readjusted to a “new normal” for us. It broke her heart to know that she couldn’t be with our beloved cat, Kitty, for a month. (We’ve since begun Skyping her into chat with our furry companion every morning and night.)

The doctors have told us that if she didn’t get the spider bite, which was what sent her to the clinic to begin with, we might’ve been sitting on a time bomb with her deteriorated immune system. Had she contracted a common cold, it might’ve killed her because her body would’ve been weakened.

Instead, she checked into the hospital very vulnerable but also very healthy and strong, which they see as a great way for her to start her chemotherapy and aids her chances for recovery during this first

Nestor returns to afternoon drive at WNST.net & AM 1570 on April 1st

Posted on 20 March 2014 by WNST Staff

WNST.net is proud to announce an exciting shift in our on-air lineup beginning Tuesday, April 1st. Nestor Aparicio, founder of WNST who previously retired as a full-time host in 2006 to focus more on the business side of WNST’s operation, is returning to the hot seat as host of “The Happy Hours” driven by Jerry’s Automotive daily from 3pm-6pm.

“I couldn’t be more excited to come back and share my passion not only for sports, but also for Baltimore in general,” Aparicio said. “I feel a great sense of civic pride and as someone who is proud to call Baltimore home, I want to develop a show that all of you can be proud of. The majority of my show will consist of good old-fashioned sports talk, but I will also be introducing a discussion-based format as each day, we’ll explore and dissect trending topics, community issues, local charities, and so much more.”

Glenn Clark will be taking his “Reality Check” to the middays from 12pm-3pm. “The D&L Window Tinting Morning Reaction” with Drew Forrester and Luke Jones will remain in its long-time 6am-10am slot, and Dan Patrick will continue to be a part of the WNST family from 10am-noon.

Aparicio has several local sponsors on board that will be joining him in this new and exciting adventure. Jerry’s Automotive will be presenting “The Happy Hours” each and everyday, and afternoons at WNST will be brought to you in part by ABC Rental Rosedale, Chesapeake Physical & Aquatic Therapy, Al’s Seafood, and Roofing By Elite.

“I can’t thank my sponsors enough for their loyalty and belief as I take on this next challenge,” Aparicio said. “Bill, Jim and the gang at Jerry’s Automotive have showed a tremendous amount of faith in our product at WNST and I can’t wait to develop our relationship even further. Craig Creamer at ABC Rental of Rosedale has been a long-time supporter of WNST and I’m fortunate in that I’ll never buy another piece of equipment for as long as I live. Jared and his gang at Chesapeake Physical & Aquatic Therapy are a new addition to the WNST family and I can’t wait to tell you all more about what they do over there. Crab Man Chad at Al’s Seafood…let’s just say I’ve been eating there for the better part of my 45 years on this planet. And last but not least, Brian at Roofing By Elite has been a steadfast supporter of ours and it’s going to be fun bringing them along for this ride.”

If you or someone you know is involved in a business that would like to become a part of our WNST family, email nasty@wnst.net or peter@wnst.net. WNST is always looking to expand and spread the good message of our Baltimore business partners.
