He has spent 35 years with the LA Kings and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2015 becoming the third Kings broadcaster to earn the distinctive honor. In 1990 he took over the radio duties and in 2012 called the Kings first Stanley Cup Championship, the first in franchise history. He had to wait just two seasons to call his second. He discusses the influence his father had on him in the business, how a minor league hockey coach helped him get the job with the Kings, what it was like when the Kings won the Cup, if he ever got to drink out of it and what it's like being among the pantheon of HOF LA broadcasters.
When you have a chance to sit down with a broadcaster that has called nearly every potential sport you jump at the opportunity. Ted Robinson is the voice of Wimbledon, the French Open, multiple Olympic events, NCAA basketball and countless other sporting events. He is currently the radio voice for the San Francisco 49ers and used to broadcast for the Minnesota Twins. Sean Aronson discusses all of this along with what it was like to be on the field, as a Notre Dame manager, for the Rudy game, having John McEnroe as your broadcast partner and replacing legendary broadcasters.
Mark Johnson, the radio voice of the University of Colorado football and men's basketball discusses what it was like to replace the legendary voice, Larry Zimmer in the booth. While he didn't go to Syracuse, he managed to land the basketball broadcasting job and discusses what it was like to get that position and call the Carmelo Anthony led championship team. Also, he discusses what it's like having former athletes jump into the booth and how good Peyton Manning might be as an analyst.
In the first ever episode with an actual guest, Bob Kurtz, the only radio play-by-play broadcaster in the Minnesota Wild's history sits down with host Sean Aronson. Bob talks about his time with the Boston Red Sox, why he decided to leave to take the Wild job and his time with the Minnesota Twins.
