Anyone know if Jim Scott at WLW is hosting his early morning radio show over Kegs 'n Eggs this year? I'm coming from out of town and didn't see anything online about it, but have enjoyed going to Willie's and Rock Bottom for this event in the past (and the Red beer!).

I am devastated by the Wily Mo trade, but word that they're doing the Kegs 'n Eggs broadcast this year would soften the blow somewhat.

Thanks for your help!

I'm sure they will. Nothing official yet, but they always have.

The lineup is usually:
Kegs N Eggs from 5-9
The Inbetween from 9-12
Pregame from 12-gametime

The official lineup should be announced this week sometime I would think.

Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I thought they had done it every year as well. But I showed up at Willie's in 2004 at 6 AM and they were closed. Maybe it had already moved to Rock Bottom by then, but I was devastated. I'm bringing friends this time so I want to make sure Opening Day lives up to my promises.
