Every other Tuesday at 9 AM a new podcast will be released.
December 25, 2018 … George Taliaferro is a name not familiar to many, but it should be. While most know Jackie Robinson for his being the first African-American to break the color barrier in Major League Baseball, Taliaferro was also a first. He was the first African-American to be drafted by an NFL Team. Taliaferro also led Indiana University to its only undefeated season in history. Dawn Knight, who wrote the book, “Taliaferro, From the NFL Draft to the Ivory Tower,” joins the podcast for a terrific discussion about a man who was so much more than just a football player.
January 8, 2019 … You know them as the Atlanta Hawks, but before they called Atlanta home, the Hawks played in St. Louis and that’s where they played in the NBA Finals four times and won an NBA Championship. The Hawks also played a pivotal role in helping launch the NBA’s greatest dynasty – the Boston Celtics. In fact, if not for the Hawks cooperating with the league office, the Celtics might have gone out-of-business. St. Louis sports’ historian, former play-by-play voice of several St. Louis teams, and the founder of the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame Greg Maracek is on SFH to talk about the St. Louis Hawks.
January 22, 2019 … Red Kelly is one of the greatest defensemen to ever play in the NHL. But his name doesn’t carry the weight of a Bobby Orr a Doug Harvey a Denis Potvin or a Ray Borque. Why? Join author Waxy Gregoire who wrote the book, “The Red Kelly Story,” as we talk about the only man to ever win 8 Stanley Cup Championships without ever having played for the Montreal Canadiens.
