Old faces in new places

by Mark Daniels

By my count, it's been approximately 670 shows over 34 years. That's a lot of football talk, Packer guests, enthusiastic fans and great locations. Best of all, we're just getting started. The 35th anniversary season of The 5th Quarter show on WTAQ is ready to premier on Monday, August 11 at our brand new home.

Welcome to the Stadium View Sports Bar and Grill at 1963 Holmgren Way, the epicenter of the Stadium district. Thanks to Jerry Watson for serving as our host for what promises to be a big year for the longest running Packers talk show on Green Bay radio. We'll be live from the "View" every Monday night from 5:00 - 6:00 PM. I'll be joined by my co-host, Matt Z of WTAQ, Every week, we'll have a Packer guest for you to see, hear and meet. During the Pre-Season, expect a visit from President and CEO Mark Murphy, General Manager Ted Thompson doesn't do many shows like these, but he comes to ours. A different player will be with us every week during the regular season, right on through the playoffs.

Wait, there's more. Our friends from Robinson Heating and Cooling are back as lead sponsors and they take care of us and you, offering tickets to home games and shopping sprees at the Packers Pro Shop when the team's on the road. NEWEra is back to blow the lid off door prize giveaways with the latest Packer caps each week.

Sure we talk X's and O's but it's hardly an inquisition, the players enjoy their stay and we hope you come out to see us this season, a big season, our 35th year of the 5th Quarter, live from the Stadium View beginning Monday night, August 11 at 5:00 PM.
