This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the third largest city in California and a destination worth putting on your radar: San Jose, California. Joining Peter Greenberg will be Tim Ritchie, President of the Tech Museum, one of the great innovation centers in the city and a great environment for education and scientific exploration for both children and adults. Mayor Sam Liccardo talks about San Jose being the tenth largest city in the United States and how it is preparing for Super Bowl 50. Mark Purdy, sports columnist for the San Jose Mercury News, gives insider tips on how to get tickets to the big game, as well as cut-rate deals on Super Bowl merchandise (no matter who is playing in the game). Ken Middlebrook, Collections Manager at History San Jose, talks about the state’s former capital and how San Jose both prospered from—and barely survived—the gold rush. Also weighing in is Patrick Smith, author of Cockpit Confidential, discussing the approaching two-year anniversary of the disappearance of MH370 and why there is still a lack of reliable flight tracking in some areas of the world.
Last but not least, local hero and former NFL quarterback Jim Plunkett dissects the changes in professional football over the last 30 years. He also talks about the necessity for the new Levi’s Stadium and how this may be a game changer for the city. There’s all of that and more as the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the Fairmont San Jose in San Jose, California.
