THE GREAT OUTDOOR RADIO SHOW by Nebraska Game and Parks Commission

Here I am interviewing Nebraska Conservation Officer Jeff Clauson of Waterloo who comes on The Great Outdoor Radio Show frequently to answer outdoor law and regulation questions.

One of the fun things that I have enjoyed doing so much on Saturday mornings for the past 11 years is hosting my own live outdoor talk radio show, entitled: The Great Outdoor Radio Show. The one-hour long program airs from 9-10 a.m. CST on Omaha’s ESPN Radio KOZN/1620 AM and also online at  The show can also be viewed in real time at the Shick & Nick Show link 

This dynamic hour of radio is produced by Gerry Gray and Great Plains Marketing out of Omaha, NE.

Trust me, there’s never a dull moment on this broadcast! Each week is completely different than the prior week’s one. What’s even more cool is that we’re on the road often at various events and locations for remote broadcasts where I get to meet and greet folks like you!

You never know what hat I might be wearing on those remote broadcasts!

My show generally features a variety of exciting outdoor guest experts in their respective fields, bits of news and information about the Nebraska outdoor scene, plus an outdoor-based trivia game that we play about halfway through the program for a neat prize or two.

The call-in phone numbers where you can join our conversations, are:
951-1620 (Local)
1-877-951-1620 (Toll-Free, Nationwide)

I invite you to tune in and call in to show, or just come over and say “Hi” in-person if I’m on one of my remote broadcasts.

By the way, guess who’s going to be on the show this Saturday to take your Nebraska fishing questions? None other than the hook-and-line guru himself:  Game and Parks Commission Fisheries Biologist and Outreach Coordinator Daryl Bauer  

Nebraska Fishing Guru Daryl Bauer. Love the hat, Daryl!

Talk to you on Saturday morning! See you out there, too!
