On tonight's SlapShot Radio program, a new segment debuted called "Captain's Corner", featuring an extended interview with Nashville Predators captain Shea Weber, conducted by (birthday boy) Pete Weber. In future weeks, other members of the team's leadership group will also participate. You can listen to the first installment via the following link:
You can catch SlapShot Radio each Wednesday evening from 6-7 p.m. on 560-AM WNSR in Nashville, listen online at WNSR.com, or catch the podcasts which are posted after each show over at SlapShotRadio.com.
The Faces Of The Franchise
I like this move quite a bit, because if there's one criticism I do have of previous captain Jason Arnott, it's that he didn't represent the team very much in the media. You didn't hear him on the radio talk shows, or appearing on local TV, etc. Shea appears much more willing to take on that role, as part of the overall drive by the organization to help grow the hockey community here in Middle Tennessee.
And besides, a show called "SlapShot Radio" should really feature the guy with the legendary slap shot, right?
