In this episode, we explore baseball’s long and storied relationship with music.
First, we look at the history of the game’s oldest song, Take Me Out to the Ballgame, then discuss the news with Liz Roscher.
You’ve heard the music at the ballpark, but have you ever wondered who is charge of it? Chuck Morgan, who does the PA announcing and runs the music for the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, talks to us about his job now, and how its changed over the years.
We then talk to composer, conductor, and educator Jack Stamp, who wrote Pastime (A Salute to Baseball), one of the only pieces of classical music written about baseball.
Michael Clair then talks about his … unique personal baseball playlist.
And finally, we hear from Bert Blyleven, the MVP of My Heart.
