Time Sure Flies When…..Posted: March 4, 2013
I can’t believe how much time goes by between my posts.
This lag between writings is not good for my followers. But hey, I’m trying.
Let me catch you up to date on a few things. First of all we had one of our best shows last week when Amy C. Hanley & Cheryl Prater were the in studio guests. If you missed the show LIVE please go to http://www.vegasunwrapped.net and click on the “podcast” link and you will be re-directed to the podcast page so you can catch up. We are planning on doing a special show in the coming weeks with Amy and her Mom, Wenday Mazaros who is better known as the “Vegas Rag Doll”. That should be a great followup show to what Cash & I did a few years back with a bunch of the “goodfellas”.
I started co-hosting with a veteran radio guy, Tony Lynn on Sundays from 3-4 PM PST, on a new talk show called “SUNDAY CHAT WITH TONY & AARON”. We broadcast from the beautiful Greenspun Communications Building on the campus of UNLV. It is more of a topical show based on the news of the week. I use this show as another avenue for exposure for Vegas Unwrapped. I can plug the show as well as any guests we have coming up. Besides, who knows where it may lead to.
SUNDAY CHAT also has the distinction of being the first show of any kind that I have been involved with over the last 6 years where I had to miss a show due to illness. It killed me to have to miss it but I was just so sick I had no choice. Then in the middle of all of that, I was packing to move to a new home on March 2nd. I am downsizing which is alot like having a size 13 foot squeeeeeezzzeed into a size 7 shoe. And I threw stuff out in the garbage too. I went from a 2500sf home to a 1550sf townhouse.
Vegas Unwrapped is coming up on its 4 year anniversary on March 13th. Talk about time flying by!! It all started when Ricky Cash asked me about doing a show together based on sports. I had just completed a year on The Sports Zoo and wanted to do something different. Ricky & I were in the timeshare industry together for a number of years so he countered with the idea about a show about Las Vegas using all the knowledge we have about the things in Vegas that make it unique but do not necessarily include The Strip. The Strip gets enough press! I won’t share too many of the things we have “unwrapped” over the years as we will share many of them on the 13th as we celebrate, but it is mind-boggling what we have done in the 4 years.
But we couldn’t have done it without our followers both on Facebook and of course our listeners each and every Wednesday night. Some exciting things are on the horizon for Vegas Unwrapped as we continue to “unwrap” the best that Vegas has to offer.
Hopefully, I won’t take as long for my next posting.

It’s baseball season again which usually means only 1 thing: HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL!
Until next time…..
