Every other Tuesday at 9 AM a new podcast will be released.
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.
February 5, 2019 … Long before they were the Sacramento Kings they were known as the Cincinnati Royals. That’s right, Cincinnati once had a team that played in the NBA and it featured greats like the Big “O” Oscar Robertson, Jack Twyman and Jerry Lucas. But the Royals struggled on the hardwood and at the gate. So, they up and left Cincinnati for the greener pastures of Kansas City before finally settling down in Sacramento. Gerry Schultz who wrote the book, “Cincinnati’s Basketball Royalty: A Brief History: A Look Back at 15 Years of Cincinnati Royals NBA Basketball,” joins the podcast for a look back at a team that never really caught on.
February 19, 2019 … Sticking with a basketball theme, we turn our attention to the old American Basketball Association and one of its most successful franchises, the Kentucky Colonels. By all rights, this team should have been included in the ABA/NBA merger, but the owner of the Colonels – John Y. Brown – had other ideas and he folded the team rather than pay the NBA its entrance fee. For more on the history of the Colonels, its stars, its run to an ABA Championship and the revolving door of coaches and owners, listen to Gary P. West author of “Kentucky Colonels, The Real Story of a Team Left Behind,” as we talk about an absolutely explosive team that featured a roster of future Hall of Fame talent.
