Blast From The Past: Reliving the 2012 National Championship the West Liberty Show

We have a special treat for Kentucky Sports Radio radio listeners this morning. We’re airing a replay of the show following the 2012 national championship game in New Orleans. Tune in to relive that magical moment for Big Blue Nation and listen to the excitement and jubilation from each and every caller.

Watch the game while you listen if you’re capable of it.

UPDATE: Apparently we’re being treated to the show from the West Liberty fundraiser instead. Tune in to hear one of KSR’s most meaningful shows, capped off by Coach Cal landing his helicopter and making an appearance.

    I like the idea of bringing back Eddie Sutton. It seems (based on his appearancces on the show) Rex Chapman likes Eddie, so if it’s OK with Rex Chapman likes Eddie, so if it’s OK with Rex, I think it should OK for the fans. My guess is if Matt doesn’t last long in the WSOP, he will tweet out he changed his mind or the line was too long to register for the tournament and didn’t play haha.

    For the next time they do a “Best-of” show, Shannon should put together a “Best of The Truth” Episode

    I will re-listen to this one over a Cutler show. I still think they should do an actual “best of” compilation, like #8 says, instead of a rerun.

    #2, I wasn’t a fan yet, so I have been wondering how people feel about that. My husband doesn’t love the idea.

    Alan Cutler has probably refused to host the show due to Matt hanging up on him the day Wiggins announced. Unless it was an act for the show to amuse the listeners. It seems to me that Matt is always looking for opportunities / excuse to neglect his responsibility to host the radio show. Why would other local personalities / celebrities want to fill in for a guy like Matt? He was rude to hang up on Cutler.

    I loved the Cutler hang-up, hilarious and well-deserved.

    #29) That is quality trolling right there! You did your fan base proud! Now get out of bed, trim your line beard, stock up on Crown for tonight, and go hang out on the corner for the rest of the day:)

    I’m not a huge fan of this episode. I’m thinking about downloading just a regular show’s podcast. Any recommendations?

    “I like our team” the other day Matt said Cal never said this about last years team.

    39 I only know how to go back as far as the oldest episode on the WKJK list, and I do listen to those in order to get through the work day. Anything with Jared Lorenzen is good, when Jennifer Palumbo talked about her plan to help Gillispie and the Calipari fantasy camp episodes were good. Also the birth of the nose whistle is in there. Sorry I don’t know exactly which dates those were, but I have been listening to September and October.

    Just want to give a big ‘THANX’ to KSR for doing the West Liberty show last year. Was truly a big lift for our folks after the devistation from the F3 tornado. Thanx again.

    I’d like to hear the Call-In Show AFTER the National Championship game (Monday night). I was in NOLA so I didn’t get to hear it, but I’ve heard the next day show a few times now.
