TJ Connelly is a sports DJ: he provides "scores" for live sporting events, such as baseball, football, and hockey games. Since the lockdown, he's been out of work, and he has been focusing his attention on Uncertain Times, a daily streaming radio show. We talk with him about what it means to score live sports, and how his streaming show is reconnecting him with real radio. Help support The Next Track by making regular donations via Patreon.
