So, we’re all a little tired over here today. The coffee machine has gotten an extra special workout after the team worked late into the night getting the new tunein.com ready to go. I know I, for one, will be heading over to tunein.com this weekend to scope out cool things to listen to. And you can too! Let’s get started.
Outside Washington, the 111th United States Open is underway and Irish phenom Rory McIlroy has sprinted ahead of the pack firing 65 and 66 on consecutive days, setting an all time, 36-hole Open record. Can he keep it up and blow the field away? You can find out and TuneIn to all the action with our friends at the BBC. They’ll have live coverage from the Saturday and Sunday rounds, starting at 9pm BST/4pm ET (Sports Extra on Saturday, Five Live on Sunday) to see who will be this year’s US champion.
In music, our friends at New Normal Rock are replaying their first “Vans Warped Tour Radio Hour” from this morning, again tonight at 9pm ET in case you missed it. Get ready for a summer full of alt/ska/punk tunes with interviews, highlights from tours past and music from some emerging artists that will be featured on tour this year.
Also, tonight at 9:30 ET/6:30 PT, fresh off their triumphant performance last weekend at Bonnaroo, My Morning Jacket will be playing a live set broadcast from Chicago on 93XRT.
And finally, in what I promise will be my last mention of hockey for at least three months, the Boston Bruins trounced the Vancouver Canucks to win their first Stanley Cup in 39 years on Wednesday night. They’ve brought the cup back to Boston to celebrate with THE BEST SPORTS FANS IN THE WORLD. GO BRUINS!!! WHOOOOOO!!! … Ahem. Sorry, old habits die hard. Anyway, check in with all the great celebrations and highlights from the parade all day tomorrow on WEEI and 98.5 The Sports Hub.
