The Golden Age of Radio has left a chest of treasures waiting to be discovered. Yogi Berra has helped us with this collection of his favorite baseball themed radio shows. Starting with the classic Abbott & Costello's "Who`s on First?" it continues with comedy, radio theatre, both fiction and non-fiction, and appearances by baseball greats, all bringing forth the best of humor and inspiration to be found in our national game. Just the list of shows is an anthology of radio from the thirties and forties: Abbott & Costello, Bob Hope, Eddie Cantor, Jack Benny, Fred Allen, Bill Stern Sports Newsreel, Lux Radio Theatre, The Cavalcade of America, Phillips Radio Time and Destination Freedom.
The stories are entertaining and the humor of Bob Hope and Jack Benny are timeless. The guest appearances by Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, Casey Stengel, Ted Williams, Bob Feller, Hank Greenberg, Branch Rickey and Leo Durocher provide a link to a different age, an age when baseball seemed pure and played by giants. Whether you want to remember the stars of yesteryear or just want to discover them, "Yogi Berra's Favorite Baseball Radio Shows" is a great place to start.
