Join Scott, Kevin, and Sarah as they welcome a very special guest to the show, Fenway Park organist Josh Kantor! Josh is a super talented musician who happens to have a unique regular gig, entertaining nearly 39,000 people, 81 times a year! Listen as Josh recounts how he got his prestigious job with the Boston Red Sox, how he prepares on game day, and the various themes to his clever song selections that some fans might miss. He'll also talk about his musical hero and mentor, the legendary Chicago White Sox organist Nancy Faust, what her guidance and influence over the years has meant to him, and the amazing adventure of winning her original ballpark organ in a charity auction and the subsequent "organ transplant" bringing it back home. If that wasn't enough, he'll also talk about his other musical ventures, such as playing with former members of R.E.M. as well as his love for "The Best Show with Tom Scharpling", including how he impressed fans and Tom alike by playing the show's theme during Boston's championship clinching game 6 of the 2013 World Series. So get ready for some fun with one of the most beloved people at America's most beloved ball park!
