Bob Edwards: The Galloping Ghost

I am pleased to announce that I will be on The Bob Edwards Show on Tuesday, October 14.

I listened to Edwards for years on NPR, and I am a fan of the Hall of Fame broadcaster. He is now with XM/Sirius, and he also distributes his Bob Edwards Weekend show through public radio stations. Edwards is arguably the best interviewer in the business, and after being interviewed by him I realize why. He spent 50 minutes talking with me about The Galloping Ghost and his questions and sense of narrative were astounding.

The Bob Edwards Show airs Monday through Friday from 8-9 AM on XM Channel 133 and Sirius Channel 196. Encore presentations: M-F 9-10 AM; M-F 10-11 AM; M-F 8-9 PM; M-F 7-8 AM (they replay each show the following morning at 7:00 AM).

Show description:

Red Grange was a three-time All-American running back at Illinois in the 1920’s when the college game was the only football that fans respected. Indeed, it was only when Grange joined the Chicago Bears that anyone paid attention to professional football. In 1969, when the Football Writers Association selected its all-time All-American team, Red Grange was the only player chosen unanimously. Writer Gary Andrew Poole joins Bob to talk about The Galloping Ghost, Poole’s new biography of the man who may have been the best player in football history...

Hopefully, for those of you without XM/Sirius, the interview will be re-broadcast on Bob Edwards Weekend. I will let you know later this week on In The Fray.
