High school football playoffs begin tonight. It is such a great time for the schools, our foothills communities, and especially, our radio station. It is great to go down to a city like Modesto, where Bear River plays tonight, and meet parents and coaches amazed that our town covers not one, but two, high school football teams with live broadcasts both home and away. So, thanks to the players, and a special thanks to our sponsors, that make these games happen. Yeah…it might be cold, windy…maybe even wet tonight…but there is no place I’d rather spend a Friday night. All the best to our Miner and Bruin warriors as they try for a section title.
