“Vuvuzela: The World Soccer Show,” is a radio show started in April 2011 by Eric Nash, a local Philadelphia resident. He saw the need for a soccer show in a city and a country that loves the game but does not have enough outlets through which to follow it. Eric brought his vision to 1490 WBCB, a radio station which is located in the heart of the Levittown community, and a station that reaches through the Philadelphia metropolitan area.
Eric does not have a single focus for his radio show; he spans the entire soccer globe. Whether it is reporting on the local Philadelphia Union or Philadelphia Independence, engaging with reputable soccer charities and stories, or speaking with Bobby McMahon from Fox Soccer about the best soccer leagues and teams in the world, this show is tailored to the interest and knowledge of any soccer fan. And he also wants to know what you want to talk about!! If you have an idea for next week’s show, whether it be a topic, guest, or question, feel free to email Eric at: ERICSNASH@COMCAST.NET.
Eric has two sidekicks on his “Vuvuzela” team as well. Eric’s longtime friend Bryan “Shep” Blasband serves as co-host for the show, and brings humor and perspective to the discussion. Bob Long is a Penn State student who began with Eric this summer, discussing tactics and other strategic elements of games and teams. The three person mix makes for stimulating soccer debate and entertaining radio, a combination that has led to the show’s success in just a year of operation.
The show has recently expanded and changed station affiliations. Vuvuzela now broadcasts Saturdays 3-5PM from 860 WWDB in Bala Cynwyd, a station that stretches into Philadelphia and all the way to PPL Park in Chester.
