Programming note

I’ll be talking Tigers with Sean Baligian on WDFN 1130 this morning. It looks like I’ll be on at 10:35. So if you’re driving around this morning, flip on the radio and take a listen. WDFN also streams over the internet so you can listen in on

Update: Here is the bulk of the interview. I was actually on a few minutes more but this is most of it. Thanks to Sean and WDFN for the opportunity and to everyone for the kind comments.

    Any chance there will be a recorded version available for download? I would be interested, as I am not available to listen to it live.

    Seconded! Let us know if they’ll be archiving the show.

    It’s a miracle! I can NEVER get any stations in on my CD player/radio here in the office but I have found WDFN – a line of static in the background but listenable!

    Billfer: “I still think they’ll win 92-95 games”

    I hate Joe Crede too, couldn’t agree more. Good interview with Sean!

    Super job, Bill. You are making all of us proud. Have to run to a meeting soon so might not be able to listen to the end –
    I hate Crede too!

    Lucky me just happening to turn my computer on at 10:30 to hear your interview. So professional, Billfer. You were great!

    Awesome interview Bill. I worry about small sample sizes when computing batting averages as well.

    BP puts the over/under on Tigers wins at 88, so Bilfer’s prediction is mildly optimistic but within the range of reasonableness.

    Damn, I missed it! I hope it went well, Billfer. It’s about time local sports talk radio recognized there are some quite knowledgeable bloggers in Detroit. Kudos!

    Stupid 2-hours behind mountain time zone…Hope it went well, billfer, and if there’s an archived version, I’d love to hear it.

    I missed it too. I hope I get to hear it later. I’m sure you did a great job Billfer.

    I just listened to the feed. Great job Bilfer. I actually did my college internship with WDFN and spent quite a bit of time with Sean. If you post to this site and haven’t checked out Sean’s work, you should. He is the kind of talk show host you like to listen to because he is simply a sports fan.

    Once again, kudos to bilfer for a job well done.

    Great Job Billfer. And a total mistake – I can’t stand Mike Valenti… Sean Baligian is an alright kind of guy!

    Seconded on Valenti. I can’t listen to his show at all any more, he makes me crazy. What an idiot.

    It was a great interview, Bill. Even Joanna says that she is impressed (even if she doesn’t understand what you are talking about).
