In the early 2000s, Arroyo was a member of the Boston Red Sox who played a vital role in the Yankees v. Red Sox rivalry.

Look, I am a Yankee fan and this guy broke my heart on multiple occasions so I wanted to hate him for the rest of my life but that was not in the cards. Bronson came on my show in 2023 and was one of the most down-to-earth guys, just someone who is enjoyable to talk to.

He came on the I-95 Morning Show to promote his band "Bronson Arroyo and the '04" and their album "Some Might Say." That day we talked about the music and a lot about baseball but I wasn't done chatting with him. I wanted to know more about his passion for rock music so we asked him to come back and he agreed.

Arroyo joined us on the Friday (02/02/24) edition of the I-95 Morning Show and we took a deep dive into his musical interests. We ended up with a sick Top 5 list from a Boston Red Sox great. This is Bronson Arroyo's Top 5 Rock Songs of All-Time.

5. Stone Temple Pilots - Plush 

4. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under the Bridge 

3. Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven 

2. Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit 

1. Pearl Jam - Even Flow

Year of Fear: Connecticut's Most Bone-Chilling Stories of 2023

Some of the most terrifying stories ever told have come right out of the State of Connecticut. There is something evil that was seeded in our origin story, something we cannot shake. Maybe we are cursed by the choices of our forefathers, or maybe we're living near a gateway to a darker dimension. Whatever the case, Connecticut has many inexplicable and haunting tales. Some of these stories return again and again and others appear from out of nowhere. In 2023, I wrote about plenty of creepy Nutmeg State Nightmares, these are 12 of my favorites.
