I was on the air a couple of weeks ago with Mark Gray, host of the The SportsGroove Radio Program on Newstalk 1450 WOL-AM in Washington, D.C.

Mark Gray, 1450 WOL-AM

Mark is an award winning sports journalist and as you probably know, WOL is one of the hottest stations around.

His show comes on weekdays from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., and from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.

So I felt honored when Mark asked me to chat with him about the connection between the history of African Americans in basketball, the evolution of black culture, and the role of historically black colleges and universities.

Our discussion served as a backdrop to the C.I.A.A. Tournament, as well as the lead up to the Conference Championships and the N.C.A.A. Basketball Tournament.

We chatted so intently that Mark decided we ought to do two segments.

Please feel free to let me know what you think of the segments, and in particular, how you feel about Mark’s insightful questions so he gets his well-deserved props.

Thank you.
