03/15/2005: Radio done right....
As I've mentioned before, XM Satellite Radio is doing broadcasts of Major League Baseball games this year. They haven't been doing every spring training game, but I've managed to hear a fair number of Cards exhibition games up to now.
What I like best: they've been picking up the KMOX radio feed, featuring Wayne Hagen (spelling?) doing the play-by-play and Mike Shannon (who, incidentally, went to grade school with my mother... well, they were in different grades but in the same school; Shannon would have been two or three grades behind Mom) doing the color. Almost as good as being back in St. Louis again.
The only thing that would make my joy complete would be to have a video feed of the game, so I could listen to Shannon while watching the video of the game (sound muted there, of course), and wonder if Ol' Moonman is watching the same game I am....
