Something a little different this month. We talk with an individual who has NO connection directly with the Sox but saw them close up for 12 years as the Royals TV announcer.

Denny has some interesting things to say about:

* His thoughts on the blurring of the line between "broadcast journalist" and "house shrill,"

* The persistent rumor that "Hawk" Harrelson calls pitches from the booth,

*Who Denny used to get the best scouting reports on the White Sox from (hint: shes still with the organization!),

*How a former partner of his on the Royals games is responsible for one of the funniest lines in the movie "Bull Durham" after a mistake he made pitching to the Sox Dick Allen years earlier,

*Why the Sox have never been able to become a truly "great team,"

*And what it was like to work with a certain rotund guy who was the Director Of Group Sales for the Royals. This guy would later return to his radio roots starting a ground breaking political talk show in Sacramento. Hed move to New York, catch a break and become a multi millionaire. Yes Im talking about Rush Limbaugh!

Hope you enjoy it.
