Scott is the Program Director for 1370WSPD, and now you can hear him every weekday afternoon from 3pm to 6pm (as well as Sunday nights on Toledo's Rock, 104-7 WIOT). The Scott Show features lively conversation about pop culture, breaking news, money, politics, technology, and sports with host Scott Sands and a "Think Tank" of regular contributors from the local and national stage.
Your input and opinions are welcome! Call Scott, even if you disagree (especially if you disagree) at 419-240-1370. A few simple rules for calling The Scott Show:
1. Turn your radio down when we answer the phone. Turn it back up after the call :)
2. Speak up, and sound energetic.
3. Get right to your point and stay on topic.
4. Have fun!
Sands is a veteran broadcaster, digital/social media strategist, and political analyst. His radio career has spanned from the Gulf Coast to Southern California to the Midwest. Prior to joining 1370WSPD as Program Director in February 2013, he was Communications Director and Senior Policy Advisor for a Republican US Congressional Campaign in Indiana. He is a father of one, music buff, cigar afficianado, fan of the Indianapolis Colts & Alabama Crimson Tide.
Scott's political philiosophy is pretty basic: smaller federal goverment, lower taxes, and a strong national defense. Other specific concepts will be updated as they come up on the show, including:
I had to ask if cicadas infest Toledo as much as they do Indianapolis and the Cincinnati area. Apparently, they do. And, they're coming ..........
You might view the obnoxious bug a little differently after you watch this pretty stunning video by Samuel Orrto. It's a time lapse documenting the birth and life of the cicada over the past 7 years. I don't know much about cicadas, but I can tell you they're a periodic insect which return en masse about every 17 years in this area.
Orrto has a Kickstarter campaign underway to help fund his planned 2014 PBS documentary. Click here for still photos and more of the story.
