Yankees And Tigers On The Radio…In 1934

This is something else. A complete radio broadcast of the September 20th, 1934 game between the New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers. This is the oldest full radio broadcast of a regular season baseball game known to exist (the 1934 All-Star Game is the only surviving full game broadcast that is older than this). …

The Jays Have Real Radio Broadcasts Again

Sportsnet restores Ben Wagner as radio play-by-play voice of Blue Jays, for now Thank god. Dan Shulman did his best, but anyone with a clue knew that this simulcasting garbage was never going to work especially with him not calling every game. Buck is what he is, but what he clearly isn’t is a radio …

So Here’s A Bad Idea That Won’t Make Anything Any Better

Majority of Canadians say music streaming services should support CanCon: CRTC survey I find this somewhat surprising and more than a little stupid. Not the Canadian content bit so much, that I somewhat understand. I don’t think content quotas ought to be dictated to global services by any country’s government, but the desire to hear …

You Sure Minimized The Crap Out Of That Travel, All Right

Dammit Rogers, you shitheads. You almost had me sympathizing with you for a second there. That stuff about minimizing travel in the name of safety this baseball season, I got it. I didn’t fully trust or believe you, but I did understand. But when it comes to minimizing, you sure went above and beyond, you …

The Blue Jays Are World Series Champions!

Game six again! Another radio call I didn’t hear at the time because I was watching it on TV with the family. The only bit I remember is Tom Cheek saying “The Blue Jays are World Series champions!”. That line was played over and over again after the fact. Not as often as the legendary …

The Blue Jays Are Going To The 1992 World Series!

Some more classic Blue Jays audio by way of Toronto Mike. This time, it’s the last few minutes of the game that clinched the Jays the 1992 ALCS and sent them off to the World Series, which they would eventually win in six games over the Atlanta Braves. This audio is also from a game …

The Blue Jays Win The East! In 1985!

I’m not sure where this tape came from, but Toronto Mike has dug up and posted audio from October 5th, 1985. That’s the day that the Toronto Blue Jays clinched their first ever AL East division title with a 5-1 win over the New York Yankees. This is the radio call of the bottom of …

The TV Team Is The Radio Team For Blue Jays Broadcasts This Year…And Beyond?

I’m going to try really hard to give them the benefit of the doubt on this one because circumstances dictate that things probably have to be different, but it’s hard to see the citing of COVID protocols as much more than a convenient excuse for Rogers to phase out dedicated baseball radio broadcasts and never …

Talk Is Cheap. Dead Air Is Cheaper

This is supposed to be satire, but it’s a little too on the nose. Bell is just the worst. I’m not sure if there’s anything for which they can be criminally prosecuted for blatantly stealing all of that COVID emergency business relief money, but if there is, may it rain down upon them like vengeance …

Goodbye TSN 1150, Hello BNN Bloomberg Radio

As of Today, Bell has decided that 1150 CKOC will be going from a sports radio station they hardly did anything with and that nobody really paid attention to to a business radio station that they’ll hardly do anything with and that even fewer people will pay attention to. HAMILTON, Ont. (February 9, 2021) – …
