Above is PASR 023: The One With Skin Wade.
“Celebrating the awkwardness or the tense moments and having a little bit of a self-deprecating kind of approach to those types of things–I think it helps you connect with the audience more.” – Jeff “Skin” Wade
105.3 The Fan’s Skin Wade has one of the most creative sports radio shows in the country. Teamed with co-host Ben Rogers on the Dallas afternoon radio show, it’s likely you will hear something nearly completely different than you’ll hear on most stations around the country.
And being different is one of the many things that Wade is proud of his show for.
