What they do Bulldog you're welcome I'll bet you. Are right that's right Chris Berman is coming to buffalo. And we have two and two individuals that are very instrumental and make this happen both how we in Dana. Guys again welcome to today's show and let's talk about how this all started. Let what we need cracks information that was in that. Promo that first. Debt interview with shall people double B on Tuesday this coming Tuesday. So I know they ran that promo last week's and that's going to be this Tuesday and Dan was here I think with the time. The Clinton starts at 1238 you can buy and meet and greet package if you and a sponsor. On retirement earlier than accent. Right out dorsal Allen experience that. So the wait is really got started how the buffalo hoping experience has started or how the legend that's not what let's start with the before hosting. Experience itself okay and so that is what you want to talk about it and so it I you know I've come into it. The last year or so as a as a representative of the buffalo musical payment to Hannah came into it as well let her talk about it she can and is a grant writer trying to. Get some money to build our huge enormous building that we want them build. And that the purpose of the buffalo hall of fame experience. Is to get all three halls of fame the musical theme the broadcasters hall fame. And the sports hall of fame it's one building and to have an interactive experience. Literally experience for all of those Western New York sports fans music fans and and people who've grown up I watched you watching our white Steiner listeners nor Norton in Ohio more aren't any effort and all of these people Tom Donohue and I'll be able to experience with their families and their friends those those great moments in and we lived them over and over and over in in an interactive place. So that's the whole purpose of the buffalo hall of fame experience involves. A board members from all three halls of fame where there is some really great enthusiastic. Brain trust that's involved in trying to get this thing. Off the ground. Did Galen and threes for Barnes they are there from the sports hall of fame and gave him DG used to. You know big famous radio guy here and in Western New York. They're really the driving force behind this is as well is that has all of our board. And you know and the cool thing about this ideas and it's a lot more than just a hall of fame you know you think about Palestinian dining BC some plaques and and it's cool to remember. But to actually have those interactive experiences. A I love this idea. I love the fact that it's gonna be more than just one China. Right this year if you ask family and it may be one member the Pham is not huge sports fan. But they love music aren't they love broadcasting their gonna be able to go in and really you know immersed themselves in some cool interactive experiences. May be some easy use sports fans ongoing and until locker room and China on pads are. The other person that was broadcasting a sit in the Brack casting track and you know fiddle with that. The difference greens things like that I mean it's really it's a cool idea. I think it's all things great about buffalo and people are gonna be really excited about it and so. My role is as a grant writer but we needs to really build some momentum and some awareness in the community and I don't know of a better way even and by Chris Berman kick this off. And lunch next weeks and that's. That's where start and at and what are the things I'm here to take away is that this is really collaborative effort you mention it and answerable to recent days. Problem at the Helm having the vision and in the leadership. What beyond them there's a group of individuals you know. Board members what seems like you're giving the community behind you you're out talking to different arm. Business owners and and just Wetherbee nonprofit organizations or otherwise it's like you'd really try to get the community behind this initiative. You know is something happened together and I can always reminding of people up as no I went to school here I speak here the college back in the eighties then. I repatriated. If you well. Three years ago and so one of the things I'm always reminding people who live especially in buffalo. Is that you want and they know this human and people from buffalo and the where you go anywhere in the world. You went into people from buffalo could happen to me the other night I was I was on the road I was down a Westchester County Tarrytown New York I was not too far away but I was. Checking in the hotel I was wearing a buffalo shirt. I turned and looked at some ice and is wearing a Ville Marie shirt and his sister was wearing a bill shortened week simultaneously oh screamed uncle bill's each other. And this happens constantly it's happened to be everywhere I've lived in everywhere bid. And the buffalo often experience. It is it really mirrors that it were it reflects that there are people. All over the world from buffalo from Western New York where these great memories when repeat. From the from the bill's days or are you know listen Harold Arlen who's who who wrote somewhere over the rainbow where everybody was the somewhere over the rainbow right. And in it from The Wizard of Oz or you know. He's from buffalo and he's in the buffalo musical fame. We have when Irv Weinstein passed away just a few months ago to people all over the world from from buffalo who mourned his loss. Because they grew up with him Wolf Blitzer we have Jeff war on CBS. We have this great that don't want to leave anybody apple we have this. This is great history's great legacy of people who've come from buffalo and especially now with what's going on in this area. It's really a time to build something like this where you can win when you come home. It's not just about going to get hot dog and wings. We want you to go and have the full experience. At the buffalo hall of fame experience building wherever that is when that is that's why we need folks help. And I keep hearing that word experience and I equate that to Western European work for the city of buffalo becoming he destination point. And as as I listen to eyeball to view. I'm envisioning. Are a museum or entities where if you are local or you're traveling from out of town that this is some place that you want to. It's going to be an attraction this this place that you want that to visit and see what we know what are rich history is about it has been about as you mentioned. How we in terms of a legacy. And each one of those areas whether it be broadcasting. Music or sports. On. A stay another day right. You know the ability to go back and and make you know. Remember the memories of Evans an amazing moment in buffalo sports history or or music and so many amazing music memories here in buffalo. But also to take your kids and write and make sure that they understand the legacy of what they inherited. You know I'm not and native buffalo onion but I've come to love this city and I'm rich rich history and it takes a long time to kind of get that out of people the amazing things have come out of buffalo. You know buffalo. You know it doesn't like to surmise and national not to brag about so this is going to be one place where you can really say this is got some amazing stuff the year and and let's show it to the world and an invite visitors from out of the area and also. The local second money tip you know. And we and we need help we need the community's help we can't just depend on. The usual suspects to the banks in the big corporate players or government help us build as we. One people in Western New York to help us build it so I'll give a plug right now if you go to buffalo and if go to PFL oh experienced that war. PF OO experience that war.

War or they corporate players and don't you know you should give yourself a pat on the back too because you're also involved in this so I think we've got to mention that there. Yet to industry people in the studio our board members not put up. Very instrumental that's for sure let's see how many tickets you sell a and I met a thanks fit perfect. Before we take a respectively we have a caller that's been waiting caller thank you west Europe network which are comment or question. Yes good morning you don't want great hurry this morning I'm great. Signal something and while a tribunal TV. All a lot of times and the people that we do know. Call him a lot but something border. I'll also have contribute that we don't need I mean I heard you mention Earl Warren and not a big drama or as well well well with people like what you Crocker called poor in no go went on to be one of bandages.

Going to be in court. Okay of every morning eastern. You know. There is mr. say graduate what so what what was your first name. Right so first off Frankie Crocker Frankie Crocker is one of my idols from growing up in New York City. From WB LS one at some point five I know I don't like Duff Frankie Crocker frank secret did you know that Frankie Crocker is a member of two halls of fame here in buffalo he's a member of the musical fame. And the buffalo broadcasters association hall of fame so he's in. I worked at the same space and they want to. OK so you know so he'll he'll be in the whole thing I just throws names out there. You know just just throw us some names that the general public. Is familiar with but absolutely of course this is this is going to honor and it does on all three halls of fame. Honor all of the greats when they were very well known or they were little known but they've given contributions to you to the community. Will be honored it in the buffalo often experience they already are honored. Within the three halls of fame. Yeah I thought. I think desperate little grant. Car either. Okay. Now while their order a great friend because they let you know if that is the case is that you know buffalo in general you know Hadley. Are a great mixture of history in general and I think that. You know and you they'll definitely screwed all reflect you know it shouldn't just what he made up by you know. One culture means that so many cultures in buffalo and they really need to look like they're usually well. And that's right that's that's exactly right on with what our plan is our plan is to honor their deep. History that T culled from all cultures in buffalo Western New York within one building and and and have a deep place where everybody can go on experience. Other cultures and also the time periods just let. You know weeks we have our time period they're people of came before us that have their time period. So so we want to make that place where grandparents can bring their kids and and show them what they grew up with and with Wendy's. What what is important Sudan and vice Versa. I think it between the three held a famous or something like 800 and he's right and it's it's a lot of people so I think it's going to be really inclusive and. Our blog yeah.
