Alonzo Jamison debuted last night on Rock Chalk Sports Talk with Brian Hanni. The daily radio show runs on ESPN radio on 1320 KLWN from 4:00 - 6:00. Jamison is replacing another former Jayhawk player, Brett Ballard. Brett took a job working for Coach Self's staff in the men's basketball office.
Phog.net: Why did you want to do Rock Chalk Sports Talk?
Zo: I listened when Brett was on the show. I really like the way Brian and Brett covered all sports. It is a great program and I am excited to be involved with it and with Phog.net.
Phog.net: What will you bring to the show?
Zo: I hope to bring my own brand of humor. I think once the audience figures it out, they will like it. I have a dry sense of humor.
Phog.net: How was the first day? Any mishaps?
Zo: No, they broke me in pretty well. It was good.
Phog.net: Now, you will be checking in at Phog as well?
Zo: Yes, I'll be in the premium forum some and answering questions for a mail bag feature.
Phog.net: Great. You know what is next. Are you ready for the Phog Five?
Phog.net: Do you golf?
Phog.net: Are you any good?
Zo: No. (laugh) At least I am honest though. Let me put it this way – I get my money's worth.
Phog.net: What is the last CD you bought?
Zo: It has been a while. A Veggie Tales CD for my kids.
Phog.net: Kids? How many and how old?
Zo: Three girls. I have an eight year old and twin four year olds.
Zo: The oldest has always helped a lot. She is a little mama.
Phog.net: What is one of your secret vices?
Zo: I watch Justice League on Cartoon Network.
Phog.net: Under any circumstances would you consider leaving Rock Chalk Sports Talk to do a Chapel Hill based radio show?
Zo: No, no, I don't think so. I love Coach. But my loyalty lies with the Jayhawks.
Phog.net: Okay, last one. The big question - Kansas vs Duke in the 1991 NCAA championship game. You recall the game?
Zo: Yeah, reporters don't usually ask me about that.
Phog.net: I'm no reporter. So the question is…did Christian Laettner ever attempt to fondle you at any point during the game?
Zo: (laugh) Not that I know of. I have the tape of that game but I have never been able to get the entire way through. Now maybe I have a reason to watch it.
Phog.net: Let us know, will you. Thanks Alonzo,
Zo: Thank you.
