He's got the magic in him

B.o.B. has wowed local crowds with electric live performances at Wild Splash and the 93.3 Jingle Ball. We have a feeling you'll be wowed again when the hitmaking rapper (Airplanes, Nothin' On You, Magic) headlines a free concert at the Cuervo Games, a day of sports competitions, giveaways and drinking in the heart of Ybor City.

One proud papa

Sunday is Father's Day. For 95.7 The Beat DJ Stu Robinson, this is always a special weekend. Five years ago, he began hosting a father-daughter dance in honor of his own little girl, Tyeisha Harston. This year's dance is Sunday at the Glazer Children's Museum, and a sold-out crowd of up to 300 is expected. Get the details on this and other great Father's Day events on PageS 34-35.
