ABOUT THIS OLD TIME RADIO SHOW:
All text on OTRCAT.com are ©2014 OTRCAT INC - All Rights Reserved. Reproduction is prohibited.

Ol' Dizzy was a colorful character who had been a pitcher with the Cardinals "Gas House Gang" in the 1930s. In his cheerful broadcasts, he tells anecdotal stories of past sporting events and players as well as answering fan mail in between joke telling.

During the depression era, a group of school teachers demanded his removal from the air because he was a detriment to their students. "Let the teachers teach English, and I will teach baseball," countered Dean. "There is a lot of people in the United States who say "isn't," and they ain't eating."

Dean was a star for less than ten seasons but he remained a "personality" for years to come. His boastfulness and constant need to be in the spotlight made him a legend in the glory years of baseball and his short stories in these 15-minute broadcasts are still entertaining today.

For great sports reporting, see The Joe DiMaggio Show, Grandland Rice and Bill Stern Sportsreel.
