NHL Playoffs, NBA Playoffs, Melo Trimble, Media Attention, Kelvin Torbert, Current Sports TV Preview, and Throwback Thursday. 

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" Al starts off the show by recapping last night's playoff action from both the NBA and the NHL. Then, Al brings on engineer Isaac Constans, and the two discuss Melo Trimble's decision to return to Maryland after dabbling in the draft pool. Did he make the right decision? Al and Isaac also highlight the repercussions of his reenrollment and how it ties into the local Michigan State scene. Then, Thursday's show holds a sneak peek of tonight's Current Sports TV episode, providing a look-in at Al's interview with former Michigan State basketball player Kelvin Torbert about his newest children's book. And to put today's sports action in a larger lens, "Throwback Thursday" polishes off the hour with some good ol' history.
