  • Game Six: Cincinnati, Boston, and the 1975 World Series: The Triumph of America's Pastime

    Best-selling author Mark Frost takes listeners back to the 1975 World Series in this thrilling account of the greatest baseball game ever played. The Reds and Red Sox endured three soggy days of inactivity to reach game six. But all that downtime could not prepare them for what happened when the skies finally cleared.

    Story

    As a lifelong baseball fan, I can certainly enjoy listening to any great game. The approach Frost takes, weaving the game action with the personal stories of the people involved as well as the histories of the Reds and Red Sox franchises, was done like an extended radio broadcast, telling the stories in between pitches. The key for me, as a fan & student of the history of baseball, was to get me to find out things that I hadn't known about the central figures in the game as well as what happened behind the scenes involving Major League Baseball and NBC.

    The vivid pitch-by-pitch accounts are suited for the baseball junkie, while the stories behind the game work well for those who like the game but enjoy a fine read or listen. The narration was excellent in that Garman isn't simply reading from a book but rather conveying the drama from Fenway that night while also pacing well to distinguish the game action from the back stories.

    This compilation contains the complete audio recordings of all four of the landmark debates complemented by narration by Sander Vanocur (one of the original panel of journalists during the first debate), enabling listeners to hear, word for word, history in the making and to draw his or her own conclusions about who won this face-off between two of America's most noted Presidents.

    Bruce_in_LA says: "very interesting"
    "Great Piece of American History"
    Overall

    I've heard all four debates previously, but I thoroughly enjoyed this program. Vanocur's narration gives the listener the proper context of the issues in the debates, particularly on the foreign policy issues. For those who want to gain a better understanding of the 1960 election and why the debates were so crucial to the outcome of the election, this will be a great help.
