“Big Band Files” with Doug Miles “Salute to Baseball”

On this edition of the “Big Band Files” we salute baseball with some of the great moments in play-by-play along with songs about the game. Voices include: Ernie Harwell, Curt Gowdy, Red Barber, Vin Scully and Jerry Doggett.

You’ll hear Jerry Doggett call the final inning of Sal Maglie’s no-hitter in a vintage 1956 radio broadcast and Vin Scully will do the postgame recap. You’ll also hear a rare interview with Joe DiMaggio by my co-host on “Sports Talk” Don Henderson. Songs include: Talkin’ Baseball, I Saw it on the Radio, There Used to be a Ballpark, Van Lingle Mungo, Baseball Blues, My Wife Saw the Dodgers Play at Ebbets Field and more.
