Let's Talk Penn State was an afternoon drive sports radio program based out of WKPS in State College that featured O. Richard Bundy and Jon Nese. This program debuted before the 2005 football season in an effort to give students, alumni, and fans an alternative viewpoint from the mainstream media. The idea was that the program would put together two faculty members from completely different disciplines to give their take on university sports happenings. In its run, the program became renowned for its exceptionally thorough insight into the ins and outs of university athletics. Instead of focusing just on football, Nese would often highlight more obscure sports in a segment called - "Perfecting the Craft" - in which he looked into sports such as fencing, women's rugby, among others. Bundy is the Director of the Penn State Blue Band and Nese is a professor in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences. The show's theme song that was played before and after the jump was a rendition of the popular Hartford Whalers theme song Brass Bonanza, a brass tune that had been defunct since the Whalers hockey team moved from Hartford in 1997. Frequent guests included Senior Women's Administrator Susan Delaney Sheetz, Mike the Mailman, Joe Battista, then Lady Lion's coach Rene Portland, and Kelly Goodman.
