Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman couldn't ask for a platform to launch his new national sports talk radio show.
"Steve Gorman Sports!" begins Monday (Jan. 27) on the Fox Sports Radio network to take advantage of the week leading up to Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 2 in New Jersey. The three-hour show -- co-hosted by Gorman's cousin Jeffrey, a onetime Crowes aid de camp and most recently with the Indianapolis Colts -- will air at 3 p.m. EST weekdays, and confirmed first-week guests include hall of fame quarterbacks Bart Starr and Joe Montana, as well as active National Football League stars such as Jamal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews III. Gorman also plans to talk to a number of musicians for the show.
"It's going to be us talking sports, but from a little bit of a different perspective," Gorman -- who will also be playing a Super Bowl eve show with the Crowes for Fox Sports on Feb. 1 in New York's Central Park -- tells Billboard. "We're sports fans; we're not experts and don't claim to be. We'll have a lot of guests from outside the world of sports. My passions for as long as I can remember are music and sports. (Talking about sports) is something I do all the time anyway, so I might as well have a microphone in front of me."
