Every other Tuesday at 9 AM a new podcast will be released.
January 23, 2018: Don Budge … In the long and colorful history of tennis, only two men have ever won all four Grand Slam events (Australian, French, Wimbledon, U.S.) in one year – Don Budge and Rod Laver (twice). Budge was the first to do it when he won all four events in 1938. To celebrate the 80th anniversary of this remarkable achievement; and as the 2018 Australian Open wraps up, we’ll take a look back on one of the forgotten heroes of tennis, Don Budge with Marshall Jon Fisher, author of the terrific book, “A Terrible Splendor.”
February 6, 2018: Johnny “Blood” McNally … He actually went by the name Johnny Blood, and he was one of the first to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame (he entered the hall in its inaugural class, 1963). One of the key components to the first dominant era of the Green Bay Packers, so few outside of Green Bay remember him. On this episode of SFH, the author of “Vagabond Halfback”, Ralph Hickok joins to talk about the life and career of Johnny Blood.
February 20, 2018: Dave DeBusschere … One of the greatest players in the history of the New York Knicks, few remember the fact that DeBusschere was also a pitcher for the Chicago White Sox. So, while he might not be “forgotten” his baseball career is certainly not remembered. Bill Pruden, a member of SABR (the Society for American Baseball Research) who has written biographies on DeBusschere, Jack Fisher, Roger Maris and Tracy Stallard, is here to talk about DeBusschere on the court and on the diamond.
