Jacks radio show set for next Monday

Muskegon hockey’s past and present will come together on Monday, Oct. 25, at Racquets Downtown Grill.

Ron Stephenson, who racked up 83 points during two seasons with the Muskegon Zephyrs from 1960-62, and current Lumberjacks defenseman Alexx Privitera will be guests on the team’s weekly radio show, “Breaking Out the Lumberjacks.” Held at Racquets, 470 W. Western Ave., in downtown Muskegon, the show airs on 97.5 FM The Champ from 6-7 p.m. Each week’s show is re-broadcast from 9-10 a.m. the following Saturday morning.

After his playing days in Muskegon, Stephenson was the color commentator alongside John Weideman, former Muskegon Fury broadcaster and current radio play-by-play commentator for the Chicago Blackhawks. Through five games, Privitera leads all United States Hockey League defensemen in both points (six) and assists (five). The 17-year-old from Old Tappan, N.J., will attend Boston University after his time in Muskegon.

As always, the show will be hosted by the voice of the Jacks, Christopher Heimerman, and will feature an appearance by Lumberjacks head coach Kevin Patrick. There will be giveaways and the floor will be opened for fans to ask questions of all the guests.

The Jacks (1-3-1) return home this Saturday, Oct. 23, to host the Indiana Ice (2-3-0), and will look to avenge their 4-1 season-opening loss to the Ice at the L.C. Walker Arena on Saturday, Oct. 2. The doors open at 6:15 p.m. and the puck drops at 7:15. The theme of the night will be Big Lebowski night.
