Missed part of the show? Heres a rewind of the program on June 7, 2014.

Food, fitness, family fun, ferry boats and trains were all in-play on this weeks Talk Back Florida.


The Tampa Bay area just received a $4.8 Million dollar grant from the Federal Transit Administration to help create a high speed ferryboat line, we talked with Ed Turanchik about the plans, route and how it might help you.


We went behind-the-scenes of the Columbia Restaurant with Richard Gonzmart. We talked about his rich family history, food, his new restaurant Ulele, fitness and his Fathers Day Family Walk /Jog on Sunday, June 15th to raise awareness & funds for Advanced Prostate Cancer at the Moffitt Cancer Center.

My favorite audio board guy, Josh joined our conversation.

It was a fun show and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
