This is the seventh year that The Locker Room with Billy Schweim has been on 973 ESPN Radio; I love sports and I am a big fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, Phillies, Flyers and Sixers.  Being on 973 ESPN has been a blast, talking sports on the radio for two hours every Saturday and Sunday is exciting, fun and demanding!  Doing a two hour show takes preparation time, watching games, selling advertisements to Pay for the show and hours of time networking to get some of the best guests and sports personalities to come on the show and talk about their careers.

Over the seven years I’ve been on the air we’ve heard for some of the biggest names in sports; South Jersey listeners have the pleasure hearing from players, coaches, journalists and famous announcers who bring us the games we love.  Some of the highlights of guests on The Locker Room with Billy Schweim includes:

-Former Eagles Koy Detmer, Jon Runyan, Dick Vermeil, Mike Quick and Eagles Broadcaster Merrill Reese

-NFL Greats Joe Namath, Rich Gannon and Jimmy Johnson have appeared on the show

-Flyers guests includes current General Manager Chuck Fletcher, former players Brian Propp, Dave Poulin Ron Hextall and Bernie Parent

-NBA and NHL officials Kerry Fraser, Paul Stewart, plus Steve Javie

-Legendary Sixers announcer Mark Zumoff along with former players Aaron Mckie and Mark Jackson.

-Former Phillies greats Larry Bowe, Brad Lidge and Tommy Greene plus World Series Champion Manager Charlie Manuel.

-Hall of Fame Broadcasters Mike Emrick and Dick Stockton plus Gold Metal USA Hockey Winner Mike Eruzione!

The list goes on and on but none of this would be possible without my advertisers!!  So this Saturday in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim, I want to thank some of my advertisers who make it all happen. The Great Bay Country Club has been a great sponsor of the show and "Radio Ron" Ralston has invited us to broadcast live there Saturday morning from 10 AM to Noon and then play a round of golf!
