Greetings, Brian in UK!

My first turntable was a portable, avocado green 45-player/AM radio all in one. Got it for my 12th birthday. It was the radio, not the turntable, that would have the more profound effect on my life. I used to listen to that AM radio all night, every night for the rest of my childhood. I still go to bed every night with the radio in my ear.

The Stream is a different way of listenng to music.
You hear music in a more fundamental way on the Stream.
Music comes at you like it has been refreshed and given new life on the Stream.
You realise what you are listening to is just what you need even though you never knew that you needed it.

Hello annie
     Fri. 5/15/15 9:36am Listener Robert:

A "suitcase" arrangement like that was very common. We had one phonograph that was a little more compact than the one shown. When Mother bought stereo, the "suitcase" had on its sides hinged speakers that clipped closed, but could easily be lifted out of their hinges for greater stereo spatial separation, & then rehanged to pack up. We didn't take them places, but they were nice tabletop models that could be kept out off the way.

We also had a console in the living room that also held the liquor cabinet & a bookcase. We never used it for audio of any kind once Mother got the portable stereo.

True! Sterling was way different and better, earlier in his career. He used to do radio for Washington Diplomats soccer if I remember correctly. I have a soft spot for Suzyn Waldman. She is awful on the Yankees radiocasts, but I love hearing her Boston accent calling Yankee games!

Does Sterling have custom calls now? I'm thinking of his interminable "It is far!...It is long!..." or whatever. Kay's "See-ya" is worse, though, yes.

And re Lytton, can think of no better show for its debut!

In the old days, the sports announcers all started out on radio, and were radio-minded. So the default was tell as much of what was going on a clearly and quickly as you can. Maybe some of the terms even evolved for that purpose?

i also grew up with baseball on the am radio out of NYC. i loved the drama in their voices and the creative ways they called the game. i hear a little of that when go outside the stadium here for food at the asheville tourists games, i could sit outside and listen to them all through the game. the action inside the stadium is just watch and cheer on your own.

The best-worst of Sterling was when he started to do his HR call for ARod--"An A-bomb..." and it was off a Japanese pitcher. I believe he caught himself at some point. At least that's what I'm told. I can't possibly actually listen to the guy live.

There is just miles and miles and miles and miles and miles of heart on display in these songs. I wish I could experience even a fleeting moment of the "express yourself by any means necessary no matter what" gumption that the folks in this sequence eat for breakfast. I find it all so breathtaking and impressive. And heartbreaking. In a good way.
  Fri. 5/15/15 11:28am Dean:

@Brian in UK: Funny you mention Zweig. I need to re-read his memoir, The World of Yesterday. (No, it's not called "Buckets of..." anything.) But I also have a book of his about Balzac and perhaps a novel or two, all unread, unopened.

And speaking of the World War (which wasn't WWI until there was a WWII), I have been reading Kenneth Burke's literary criticism written between the Wars. His observations are utterly fresh in many respects, despite their being from a world very much of yesterday.

@Brian in UK: News to me, too, but I'm not all that tuned into movie stuff. For instance, about ten years ago I predicted the next blockbuster would be a contrived biopic about Gutenberg, the "invention" of movable type, the machinations surrounding a claim to the invention, his love life, etc. I figured we'd see one within two years.
