A month ago, Geno from Q105, Zito from 98.7 The Shark and Travis Daily from 99.5 QYK wondered if they would know someone who would get the coronavirus. A month later, one of them doesn’t know anyone who’s had it. One knows many who’ve had it. One has a friend who lost his battle with it. How are you passing the time? Geno and Zito are hooked on investing apps. The guys are also watching replays of games, but are ready for sports to be back – but will you watch if there’s no crowd? And has there ever been a better time to commit a robbery? And where will we be a month from now?
