San Diego County Fair

By Joe Nelson
      As SanDiegoRadio and The San Diego County Fair have partnered up, and the fair is heavily involved with local radio stations, I just wanted to post a reminder on some important dates and events.
   The 2014 San Diego County Fair becomes The Fab Fair, kicking off this summer as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the British Invasion, an era when musical acts and other aspects of British culture changed America. The dates of the fair are Saturday, June 7 through Sunday, July 6.
   The 2014 Toyota Summer Concert Series is the Fair's premier music event, featuring internationally known entertainers on the Heineken Grandstand Stage. Check out the concert line-up HERE
    The Big Bite Bacon Fest brings all of the best bacon foods to one location in celebration of the world's most beloved protein! This fun-filled tasting event features creative bacon dishes from the best chefs and competitive cooks in San Diego and beyond. Indulge in unlimited bacon-y deliciousness ranging from appetizers to desserts and everything in between, and wash down that bacon goodness with samples of San Diego's top craft beer!
And while this event is all about the bacon, the fair will have entertainment and games like Pig Pong, Pork Ladder Toss, Bacon Hole, and more! Attendees can pig out in hog heaven at this event that will showcase America's love for bacon, and will undoubtedly be a treat for everyone in the family.
    If you have any station events you would like me to post, please email me with the details!

SanDiegoRadio Asks For Some Help for a Friend

By Joe Nelson
I hesitate putting this on the SanDiegoRadio as it really does not relate to radio, but when a good friend needs help, I'd feel bad if I did not do all I could. If you, or the station can do anything to assist my friend and his awesome family, it would be greatly appreciated!

 Thank you, Joe

Morton in the Morning on Ellen WITH VIDEO

By Joe Nelson
Z90 San Diego's "Morton in the Morning" show pops up on ELLEN!!
   Z90 Morning show,"Morton in the Morning" had guest Marlon Wayans in studio to promote his movie A Haunted House 2 and asked for him to take a selfie with them. 

   The next day that picture popped up on The Ellen Show as Marlon himself explained that he was the,"King of Selfies". Show host Rick Morton said, "I was watching Ellen and then next thing I see is our picture on her big screen! I immediately thought, 'Hey, that's us!' cool!" I guess it never hurts to ask for the selfie these days!!
