Billy C and Jeremy Calogero
Name: Billy C & Jeremy Calogero
Show(s) I host(ed) on TPSRadio: Talkin Boxing w/ Billy C
My favorite TPSRadio memory: Man, there are so many! It has to be the first time we went live! We had recorded a few shows and neither one of us had ever “done it live.” wait….Done it… that doesnt sound right… Anyway. The pressure of knowing we couldn’t go back and re record was just what the show needed to kick it up a notch.
Also, when we first started the show, we were doing it from “Snoops Boxing Gym” in Poughkeepsie, NY… We were in the middle of explaining how the location wasn’t the safest neighborhood in the world…when police sirens start blasting by… it was perfect.
Another one… our first “Head to Head”… two boxers who were gonna be in the ring facing each other that week smack talking on the radio! It was gold!
Oh and I, Billy C, have to say… my favorite part of every show was every time Jeremy started speaking… He is my hero…. His voice is like a cross between Jesus and Fergie… (Jeremy didn’t write that…)
What I’m up to now: Talkin Boxing has grown into a full blown empire! Along with the audio version the show has made the move to TV… We broadcast live M-F on Fight Now TV (www.fightnow.com) and Billy has started gaining a huge YouTube following at youtube.com/billycboxing.
Show(s) I host(ed) on TPSRadio: The 3 Wisemen
My favorite TPSRadio/TPXRadio memory: The Sports Buffet episode where Ray and Jen used the Stadium Pal live on the air.
What I’m up to now: I have recently become the Director of Franchise Stores for GNC.
Show(s) I host(ed) on TPSRadio/TPXRadio: The Kelly and Alana Show
My favorite TPSRadio/TPXRadio memory: Answering questions with Alana (or, having Alana answer them FOR me), while completing “the Sex Test” questionnaire live on the air – without having read it beforehand.
What I’m up to now: I work as a physical therapist where I help people recover from joint replacement surgery. My favorite ways to unwind during my time off include camping, flying, off-roading, wine tasting, and traveling to tropical destinations.
Show(s) I host(ed) on TPSRadio: Wrestling News Live, Punishment Radio
My favorite TPSRadio memory: Branching out and hosting a podcast with my brother Alex called “Punishment Radio” on TPSRadio. It was the first time I did anything radio, podcast, etc. on my own and not about professional wrestling. I was and still am a big fan of MMA and it was very refreshing to discuss that growing sport at the time and build a new audience.
Show(s) I host(ed) on TPSRadio: The Sports Bar
My favorite TPSRadio memory: Ray recording us during breaks and outakes that were then put on the air. Also, predicting the downfall of Tim Lincecum 2 years ago.
What I’m up to now: Work and preparing for the Return of the Sports Bar!

Name: Brian Wilmer
Show(s) I host(ed) on TPSRadio: The Writers Radio, Sports Matters
My favorite TPSRadio memory: There are far too many to mention!
What I’m up to now: I am now the Carolinas Regional Correspondent for StadiumJourney.com, along with writing weekly columns about the ACC and SEC for FBSchedules.com. I am still doing Sports Matters (after eight-plus years!), along with Ed, whenever he can stop by. I would love to hear from any current or former TPS personalities. I’m proud as hell of our many years with the network and the friends I’ve been able to make in the process.
Name: Alana Rose
Show(s) I host(ed) on TPSRadio: The Kelly and Alana Show
My favorite TPSRadio memory: All of the recording memories make me smile when I look back at them! One in particular that always makes me giggle is when Producer Ray *had to* chime in on me and Kelly’s “Sex Test.” It’s the only episode where you can hear him talking.
What I’m up to now: I moved to Austin, Texas almost 2 years ago. Although my radio career is behind me, I stay busy managing global projects for a large technology company. You can find me out an about in Austin, trying new restaurants, at a cocktail bar, or listening to some live music.
Show Hosted: Yankee Fan Club Radio
Favorite TPS Radio memory: While I enjoyed all the broadcasts we shared talking all things New York Yankees, I would have to say without a doubt my favorite moment was when a listener from Cardiff, Wales (Alex Angove) graced us via a Skype hookup to talk Yankees baseball. It was awesome because there were so many die-hard Yankee fans around the globe who somehow found our broadcasts and started to e-mail us on a regular basis. The build up was exciting. The actual event was as much fun doing as it was getting it together.
What I’m up to now: Now I am semi retired, and a grandfather to two wonder grand kids. Life couldn’t be any better.
Show(s) I host(ed) on TPSRadio: GnatRadio Sports Updates, Bryant Scott Show, Hitting to All Fields, BackYard Radio Show
My favorite TPSRadio memory: When TPS Radio was the PLACE to go for LIVE sports and entertainment broadcasts. It was a fraternity that was like no other before it, or since. Specifically? The 40yard Dash Challenge between The Sports Buffet and The Bryant Scott Show….Gold is always Gold!
What I’m up to now: 230. was up to about 250 but I’ve been eating lots of fruits and veggies. Living in MT, working my life away and enjoying time with my wife (and CoHost)…still messing with radio stuff….www.REDRAVENRADIO.net. Congrats to Ray and TPSRadio on 10 years of success and to the other folks who have been involved at TPSR that are still keeping the dust off their mics!
Show(s) I host(ed) on TPSRadio: Baseball Musings
My favorite TPSRadio memory: Favorite memory is an interview with a guy who wrote a book about baseball
What I’m up to now: I’m still blogging about baseball at BaseballMusings.com, and I’m a software
programmer at Bay Path College.
Name: Dan Solomon
Show(s) I host(ed) on TPSRadio: Pro Bodybuilding Worldwide (PBW)
My favorite TPSRadio memory: Shortly after I booked Arnold Schwarzenegger to appear on an earlier broadcast of my show, I still remember how excited I was to inform Ray Garcia that we were on the verge of bringing one of the most famous stars on the planet to TPS Radio. It was a symbolic moment, as we suddenly realized that independent online radio was no longer a place for the unknown…..it was now a place for “A-List” superstars!
What I’m up to now: I’m still hosting the PBW radio show, now in our 9th year, nearly 300 shows strong. Also working as Senior Features Editor at Muscular Development Magazine. Drop me a note on Twitter @DanSolomon100
