What’s in a name?

January 21, 2009 | Nestor Aparicio

Today is Day Two of being “back on the air” for me. Yesterday was a lot of fun and just prepping for a daily show brings back many memories of the 13 years where I did four hours a day every day with guests, calls, concepts, promotions and laughs. So far, I’m really enjoying the thoughts of being back on the radio for a while. And people have been super nice with a bunch of kind emails, well wishes and general happiness.

But with the new show comes a few questions, including what the name of the show should be. I literally never gave it any thought until I went back on the air and bristled at the thought of calling the show the “Sports Forum,” which was its name for all 13 years of its existence (except for the two years when I did “Nasty Nationwide”). It’s a new show, a new time and I’m 40 years old now, so anything “Nasty” is off limits at this point. I just want to be Nestor and do a show and have some fun interacting with people who grew up (or are who are currently growing up) loving Baltimore sports.

So, the suggestions have been rolling in on email. So far:

“Fulltime”

“Afternoon drive”

“No access” (so far, this is my favorite, a nod to Greg Bader and Peter Angelos who continue to pretend that Baltimore’s No. 1 online sports media entity don’t exist)

And of course, there are the emails telling me to get the hell back off the air and hire someone else. I am amused by these as well! All contributions are welcome!

If anyone has some suggestions, feel free to drop them in the comments here.

I’ll be back on the air at 2 p.m. ready to chat about this morning’s Steve Bisciotti/John Harbaugh “State of the Ravens” annual press conference, which happens at 11 a.m.

I’ll also be LIVE BLOGGING from the Owings Mills complex during the actual event.
