Chemistry, Fan Interaction Drive Franklin’s Weekly Radio Show

James Franklin brought a special guest with him to his weekly radio show.

It’s a little past 6:30 in the evening in early September, and nearly 100 people have gathered in the downstairs of Lettermans, the revamped sports bar and restaurant that’s located in the shadow of Beaver Stadium.

Coming straight from practice and entering the room to applause, Franklin smiles. But he’s not alone. His daughter, Shola, is all revved up. She was at practice, her dad says, running 12 laps.

“That takes the guilt out of the ribs she’s about to crush,” Franklin says.
