Welcome to Radio Baseball Cards.
This podcast series was originally a created in 1987 as a nationally syndicated radio baseball pregame show. For this introductory demo, John Madden gladly provided a testimonial. John and I worked together for nearly 3 years, as I was his recording engineer in San Francisco for the RKO Radio Network. Bringing it all back to baseball, my contact at RKO was Charlie Steiner, who is now one of the announcers for the L.A. Dodgers.
To gather interviews, I enlisted 3 reporters, including myself, to travel to every Spring Training facility in Florida and Arizona. We produced and delivered 162 episodes to more than 40 stations across the USA. Unfortunately, we were only able to secure enough funding for one full season, so it’s been in hibernation ever since. Thanks to podcasting, it’s a joy and an honor to share them once again. Since we had to pull each episode from reel to reel or cassette tapes, the quality may not be up to our normal digital standards.
Please write to me at [email protected], I’d love to hear your feedback.
Thanks for listening,
