Sam Carchidi has done a remarkable job of bringing alive for us the life and experiences of that voice and shows us that Bill is really the nice, respectful guy that his voice always said he was. Campbell also has covered the Philadelphia sports scene for 60 plus years as few others have and Sam's book is rich in Campbell's delightful stories and impressions of those athletes and others, that have made the Philadelphia area such a great sports venue.
From witnessing the incomparable Glenn Davis as he teamed up with Doc Blanchard in the Army-Penn and Army-Navy football games in the mid-forties to all of the many other great athletes and teams of the intervening decades up until the current day, Bill Campbell has an outstanding breath of experience and knowledge of Philadelphia sports. He is "The Dean" indeed!
An excellent read for all, especially for those of us who have followed Philly sports' ups and downs over the last few generations and a pleasure to finally put a unique life story to one of the great broadcasting voices.
He was a part of the fabric of Philadelphia sports.
