Steve Smith is done dismantling his former team, the Carolina Panthers, on the field. Now he's taking apart the storyline he says they're trying to propagate about his exit. Days after he scored a pair of touchdowns against his former team, the Ravens wide receiver called into a Charlotte, N.C. radio station, WFNZ , Wednesday to discuss his new circumstances and his feelings about the end of his 12-year career in Carolina. He outlined the step-by-step process of how he was released, and refuted an NFL Network report that he was released not because of on-field decline, but because he was divisive in the locker room and refused a pay cut. Smith said in the interview that Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman told him “basically that I'm a shadow of the player I used to be - I can't run and jump like I used to, I'm jealous of Cam [Newton]

Republican Senate candidate Dan Bongino begins airing the first radio advertisement of his campaign today, a largely introductory spot that focuses on his outsider status and criticizes “career bureaucrats.” Bongino narrates the minute-long ad, which the campaign said begins airing on WCBM in Baltimore today. “Can we all agree that politicians aren't getting the job done?” the former U.S. Secret Service agent asks in the ad. “I refuse to accept that the current crop of D.C. bureaucrats is the best we can do.” Bongino is running against nine other Republicans in the April 3 primary, including former Pentagon official Richard J. Douglas.

Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop listening to the Orioles on the radio on the front porch. Grandpa keeping score with pencil and paper. The yells of the fans floating over from Memorial Stadium. Chuck Thompson saying, "Ain't the beer cold. " Kids falling asleep on the ride home from the game. For many Baltimoreans, the story of the Orioles is the story of their family. It's a way for fathers and sons to talk, for mothers and daughters to connect, for grandparents to pass down traditions. Through the dark years of losing seasons, these families kept the Orioles magic alive.

With a seemingly endless arsenal of musical tricks at its disposal, TV on the Radio crafted one of FreeFest's tightest sets Saturday. The band's talent felt overwhelming live, with the vocal dynamics between lead singer Tunde Adebimpe and singer/guitarist Kyp Malone sounding raw and in sync. The group heavily featured a trombonist in almost every song, adding a sharp contrast to the crunchy guitars and lusher moments. Early in the night, a song broke down into a stadium-ready New Orleans jazz party.

Kenny Curtis swivels away from the microphone and asks the kids from Our Lady of Mount Carmel Elementary School for song requests."Pearl Jam? Pearl Jam makes kids go, like, aaaagh!" the deejay replies to the chorus of suggestions, contorting his face in mock horror. "It makes little kids climb the walls."Then he explains to his sixth-grade visitors that the music he plays every morning must be suitable for listeners from roughly 3 years old up to adulthood.Thus Pearl Jam, a hot "grunge" rock band, is not likely to be heard on Baltimore's first radio station just for kids.

Orioles radio broadcaster Fred Manfra's familiar voice returned to the airwaves Tuesday for the first time since the first week of the season. Manfra, who has worked on the club's radio broadcasts since 1993, expected to only miss a month after undergoing a right hip replacement procedure in early April. But he needed a second surgery that kept him out for a total of 80 games. Both surgeries were performed by team orthopedist Dr. Michael Jacobs. Manfra said it was difficult being away from the club for an extended amount of time.

He remembered everything about that night. He remembered the song they slow danced to -- "You Are My Lady. " He remembered the play of the lights in her hair as he held her. He remembered her eyes as she looked up at him. He remembered wanting to spend the rest of his life with her. But it wasn't to be. Before they made it to forever, she died of cancer. So would Casey please play "You Are My Lady" in memory of that angel who was lost too soon? I may have rolled my eyes as I edited that listener's letter to be read on the air by Casey Kasem, who died on Father's Day at age 82 after suffering from dementia.

This Columbia Festival of the Arts presentation combines aspects of 1930s-style radio dramas with comic book art. Like such movies as "Star Wars" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark," this theatrical show looks to the campy science fantasy and adventure stories of that earlier era for its inspiration.

Republican candidates for Maryland governor criticized the O'Malley administration - but rarely each other - in a tame radio debate today that touched on the state's handgun permit law and 2013 death penalty repeal. The 60-minute, morning debate was broadcast and streamed live on WBAL radio. Host Jimmy Mathis solicited questions from listeners. The four candidates -- Harford County Executive David R. Craig , Del. Ron George of Annapolis, former Ehrlich administration official Larry Hogan and Charles County business executive Charles Lollar -- spent much of the debate drawing contrasts between their respective positions and those of Gov. Martin O'Malley, who is prevented by term limits from running again.

The three Democratic contenders for governor have agreed on a plan to hold three broadcast debates - two televised and one on radio - before the June 24 primary, according to the campaign of Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown. Brown campaign manager Justin Schall sent out an email late Tuesday night said the lieutenant governor, Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler and Del. Heather R. Mizeur of Montgomery County had reached agreement on the plan. However, on Wednesday morning, the Gansler and Mizeur campaigns accused Brown's campaign of breaking an agreement to make a joint announcement and said they would put out a statement later in the day. They did not say whether the details of the Brown announcement were inaccurate.
