Listen to Marty and Joe on Reds radio
April 21 1978:
Candlestick Park, San FranciscoGiants 3 Reds 0
Tom Seaver was out dueled by Bob Knepper
I listened to this entire broadcast as I was working on today's show in my office at home.
Here are a couple of this that stuck out to me:
*The between inning commercial breaks were 60-seconds.
*Marty referred to the Reds as "us" at one point.
*There was no interaction between Marty and Joe. Marty did his innings. Joe did his innings.
It was weird.
*Marty had a lot more patience for things back then.
*Marty mentioned the Reds would be back home on a Monday night, with an 8:05 first pitch at Riverfront. How would fans react to 8:05 start times these days?
