Kentucky Sports Radio

University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Listen to Matt Jones on ESPN’s Marty and McGee

You can’t get Kentucky Sports Radio on a Saturday morning, but you can hear Matt Jones on the radio, thanks to Marty Smith.  While the ESPN reporter covers the Belmont Stakes, Matt filled in for two hours on Marty and McGee to answer the question, “What is the best trophy in all of sports?”

During the first hour of the show Matt was joined by a friend of KSR, Shannon Spake.  A constant on the sidelines during the early years of the John Calipari era, Spake talked a little bit about her time as ESPN’s primary UK reporter and what it’s like to cover NASCAR during a rain delay.

In the second hour, Marty Smith called in from New York to talk about Justify’s run for a Triple Crown, but that wasn’t the best part of the show.  Today’s Hillbilly Headline was a story about a spider monkey that bit a woman in Florida, a story that was actually told by a UK graduate, Sabirah Rayford.
