Los Angeles, CA, June 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Dodger baseball legend Steve Garvey is taking a swing at guest-hosting the nationally syndicated Animal Radio® show. This special broadcast airs July 4th weekend on 99 AM-FM stations and XM Satellite Radio.
Garvey says he's the opening act for “Tillman the Skateboarding Dog” at his new job as spokesperson for Natural Balance Pet Food.
When Natural Balance asked if Garvey would skateboard alongside the dog, he replied "absolutely Not … unless you strap me on and put cement around my ankles."
Garvey will be hosting "Dog Days" at several baseball games across the country. He said there's nothing more American than pets at a baseball game. And despite 500 or so dogs inside an arena, it all goes smoothly. "Ironically the dogs are very quiet during the game until the fans start cheering."
Hear this All-American Animal Radio® broadcast on XM Satellite Radio ch. 158 (America’s Talk) Saturday July 3rd at noon EST and rebroadcast Sunday July 4th at 5pm EST. Animal Radio® also broadcasts on 99 AM/FM radio affiliates, including KOST 103.5 Los Angeles. See more listening options at AnimalRadio.com
