Peter Sampson from Blazer’s Edge Radio invites BlazerManiacs to a special live show at the Spirit of ‘77!

NBA: NBA Draft Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

It may be the offseason, but there is still plenty of Portland Trail Blazers news to discuss! Since the team has three draft picks in the 2017 NBA Draft, odds are good we’ll see something interesting on draft night. That’s why Blazer’s Edge Radio will be broadcasting live from Spirit of ‘77 sports bar (500 MLK Jr. Blvd., Portland) on draft night, June 22nd, from 4-7 pm. We’ll give you live coverage of the draft from a Blazers fan’s point of view, including pick by pick analysis and immediate reaction on any Trail Blazers activity.

Blazer’s Edge Radio and XRAY.FM

For the last 15 months, Blazer’s Edge Radio has aired every Tuesday at noon on 107.1 XRAY.FM and the experience has been nothing short of fantastic. When XRAY approached me about doing the show, I honestly had reservations. Having worked in corporate radio, I’ve seen first hand how the message can get diluted; there are sponsors to please and average-quarter-hour listeners to maintain.

XRAY’s mission statement is “Radio is Yours” and that has proven to be true without a shadow of a doubt. With input from the Blazer’s Edge crew, I have complete control of the program every week and get to deliver to you a unique opportunity to talk Blazers without the aforementioned influences.

Since we operate in radio format, we have the ability to take live calls and texts directly to the studio. Our mission is to interact with Blazer fans and give them an opportunity to drive the conversation. Just because I know what I want to talk about doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily in tune with what is on your mind. With Blazer’s Edge Radio, we all talk about the team in real time.

We would love to see you on draft night. The show will feature me, Peter Sampson, as well as several of the Blazer’s Edge and XRAY.FM staff. Come out, have a pint, and talk basketball with your favorites from the site. In addition to offering analysis, we’ll be taking your questions live on the air. It’s another great opportunity for us to get together as a community and celebrate our love for the Trail Blazers.

Thank you all for being part of this wonderful community and all of you who listen to Blazer’s Edge Radio every Tuesday at noon. I hope I see you all at Spirit of ‘77 tomorrow!
