BRIAN SMITH is the same Brian Smith of (the former)  SMITH AND BARBER, THE MORNING SHOW on WPLR… his (former) solo afternoon talk show on WICC 600AM, and (the once) host announcer for the Bridgeport Bluefish baseball and the Fairfield University Stags basketball games at Harbor Yard… and now part of the team at FM NEWS NEW YORK 101.9FM… you can email him at:

BACK UP YOUR STUFF. Here’s a handy reminder if you have your own website.  BACK UP YOUR STUFF.  You can buy an external hard drive cheaper than a case of Everclear… and if you have a back-up of your stuff, you won’t need the case of Everclear.  So, BACK UP YOUR STUFF and save your liver.

Everclear, by the way, is a cheap grain alcohol.

An external hard drive is something I will be using to back up this website from now on.  The magic place where the internet is stored is very unforgiving, and somewhat opportunistically sadistic… which is why I’m still putting things back together here…  my thanks to BrianSmithRadio initiator Pete Sachs for investigating the website wipeout.  And again, thanks to Dan for finding a lot of the old material online.

THE VOICE was in Florida this week, meeting with players and giving them some tips on everything from putting more sink into their fastballs to where to rent the best mansions in the NYC/CT/Long Island (and New Jersey) area… he also got a few of the Yankees, Phillies, and Red Sox to agree to stop by for the Thursday night Arm Wrestling league at The Prognosticator Grill and Cafe this summer.  He politely asked all the Mets players to take the year off and focus on their turf game…  except Pelfrey.  THE VOICE says it can only make him better.  THE VOICE has sent along his inside look at MLBTHE NFL… pictures of Tim Tebow with the Jets… Arena FootballTennis in FranceTHE NBA… and the CHEERLEADERS… and more… go to Sports Picks at BrianSmithRadio.com, or just click (here)…

AND NOW…

HURRICANE WINDOW TAPING… experts say putting that masking tape “X” over your windows before a storm does no good… and may cause more damage… think BIGGER pieces of glass flying all over your home or business… and if you have a business with big “X’s” in the windows, people are going to think you are selling Moonshine or adult magazines… read the article from CBS News, click (here)… (and hello to my cousin Erin in North Carolina)…

THE CARS OF CUBA… in Cuba, the shipments of cars from the United States ended in 1960… so their world of cars is completely different than ours… cars on their roads are from the 40’s and 50’s, continuously restored (with artistic ingenuity and a welding torch)… and are handed down like heirlooms from one generation to the next… Visitors to Cuba can make a lot of friends and make a lot of deals with a handful of new spark plugs as currency…  check out some pictures and the story from Hagerty.com, click (here)…

FROM NASA… THE SCALE OF THE UNIVERSE… click the big START button, and then move the slider on the bottom of the page back and forth… you will go from objects smaller to microbes… through the sizes of sand grains… humans… buildings… planets… galaxies and beyond…  it’s fun, educational, and better than work… from NASA, click (here)…

Have a good weekend… drive safely… and if you are on Long Island, please… please… please… pay attention to which way your are heading on the highways… thanks for listening… -Brian
