Nothing is more exciting in local sports than a state tournament overtime win!! As we enter the winter sports season, we thought we would highlight one of the more memorable moments in recent high school hockey playoff action. Its do or die! Its win or go home! In 2016, Dartmouth came inches away from blowing the game against Rockland with seconds left. Goaltender Tyler Martin just got a piece of the puck to save the day for Dartmouth. Then Scott Shorrock turns the crowd into a frenzy in sudden death overtime. My son Dylan Santos and I had the pleasure of calling the game for Dartmouth Community Television (DCTV).
Dartmouth native Brian Rose is best known as a professional baseball player has played for the Boston Red Sox as well as several other teams during a career that lasted more than a decade. Brian now works for the DAs office in an outreach program, and also as assistant hockey coach at Dartmouth high school and as head baseball coach at Bishop Stang High School. He’s also a contributor to Paul Santos live. He spoke with us about the Red Sox change in managers and about a clip that I showed him from his pitching days for the Red Sox.
Mike Couto is probably best known for his work as a musician as part of the team Couto and Mulligan. For nearly a half a century Couto and Mulligan performed all around the area playing great music and entertaining audiences with their terrific sense of humor. Bill Mulligan passed away a couple of years ago but I had a chance to catch up with Mike who is performing around the area as a top-notch solo act. I also put together a clip of a performance they did on my TV show a few years ago.
New Bedford continues to maintain its status as the number one fishing report in the United States. At this year’s New Bedford working waterfront festival the captain of the scalloper Elizabeth and Niki offered tours. I had a chance to speak to the captain and first mate on what it’s like to be a fisherman, and how difficult a life it is. I also had an opportunity to look at the inside workings of the ship itself.
Many people know Larry Soares by the sound of his voice. For nearly 20 years he worked at popular radio station Fun 107. For much of that time, he worked on the morning show with very well-known radio personalities such as JR, Michael Rock, and Sharon Fogaren. He left a couple of years ago and is now pursuing a career as a standup comedian. It’s an interesting story for sure.
