Until 2012 he anchored the afternoon drive time slot on KJR radio, talking with local sports fans, interviewing national newsmakers and pontificating about the relationships between fans, team owners, players and the guy with a beer next to you in the stands.

In December of 2012 he resigned from KJR to pursue other interests.

He is now a regular contributor to Pearl Jam Radio on Sirius XM channel 22. He does long form interviews with athletes, musicians, and other special guests.

Gastineau's previous books include The Great Book of Seattle Sports Lists with Art Thiel and Steve Rudman (Running Press, 2009) and he has been a contributor to The Seattle Times, Lindy's College Football and The Grand Salami.

A very quick and entertaining read that recaps some great memories from the Seattle sports scene. Some I'd heard before and enjoyed reading again - some were totally new. The guest authors also make this a fun way to see events from a different view.

I read and passed along to my brothers/Dad who also went through it quickly and enjoyed it. Thanks to the Tacoma News Tribune who mentioned this in one of their sports columns.

Several years later, I still find myself reading the same entries every now and again. A lot of great memories, and interesting tid bits, for a NW Sports fan.

This is a great book for anyone living in Seattle or a fan of Seattle sports. You can recognise all the people, places, and events in this book and learn some new things. I am eleven and I can, too!

Format: Paperback
I certainly think any Washington/Seattle sports fan would enjoy this trip down memory lane, despite a generally depressing sports history. The overall research by the authors and anecdotes from guest contributors are excellent. There are several "oh yeah, forgot about that" moments to read about, as well as plenty of facts from the first half of the 20th century most of us never even knew.

Still, it's not perfect. It's a book of lists, which can only be so engrossing. And in order to fill the book out, the same characters and stories are repeated from time to time, as is the rant against those who criticized Schultz/Bennett for the Sonics fiasco (I can hear Gas's voice every time I read those parts ;). A year later certain lists are already outdated, which is natural when it comes to such a topic. Hopefully the authors will revisit their lists and publish an updated edition down the road.

Overall a nice stocking stuffer and bathroom book.
