Swoop’s World Radio is a Southern California Internet radio show based in Long Beach, Ca., that broadcasts on the Talk Story Radio and BlogTalk networks. Each week hosts Swoop and Peter Dopulos, tap into the arts, culture, politics, entertainment, and lifestyle of Southern California.
Refusing to be locked into a specific category, the duo keep the show fresh through variety. They’ve interviewed politicians, citizens, musicians, community activists, celebrities, Olympic Medalist, Academy Award Winner and more. Their primary goal is to keep the conversation insightful and entertaining.
What started as a weekly show quickly gained momentum and listeners. It was soon picked up by other networks and expanded into two very distinct shows, Swoop’s World Primetime, and Swoop’s World Late Night.
Taylor “T-Bone” Nelson was a frequent guest on the show, joining in bi-weekly for the LB Food Review Segment. After the launch of Swoop’s World Late Night he became a regular on the late show. Providing his insight and banter to the mix, T-Bone also brings a sports angle to the show that often has the listener feeling like they’re sitting in on their favorite team’s secret meeting. He shares his insight and sports enthusiasm during his weekly segment of T-Bones Timeout, where he provides the latest in sports with his often-irreverent commentary.
Swoop’s World Late Night has become the flagship of Swoop’s World Radio. Broadcast on Wednesday nights, the show interviews artists, musicians and celebrities. The trio enjoy a beer tasting segment sponsored by DrinksWinesSpirits.com, T-Bones Timeout, give their take on news of the day, and often banter with listeners in the interactive chartroom. Swoop’s World Late Night is 3 hours of craziness that’s sure to make you laugh. Swoop’s World Late Night is Party Central on Talk Story Radio!
Swoop’s World Primetime consists of Swoop and Peter and a host of guests ranging from authors, community activists and interesting people around the globe. This 1-hour show encompasses a lot of the subjects and community involvement that inspired the launch of the show in 2009.
