    – Has a Sonos sound system in six rooms continually playing oldies
  • Callaway Golf VP/Sports Marketing Nick Raffaele 
    – Loves pop culture, but it "seems common sense isn’t so common"
  • Athlete & Event Sports PR President Chip Namias
    – Especially enjoys pop culture from the '60s and '70s
  • OneUp Sports VP/Content & Strategy John McCauley
    – Content junkie for anything that creates a must-watch event
