Live From Mickey Mantle’s
Last week Gotham Baseball Magazine launched their radio program, “Live from Mickey Mantle’s”, on BlogTalkRadio. There were some technical difficulties, as is to be expected the first time out — especially when using cutting edge technology such as internet radio. But overall it was a strong first show and hosts Mark Healey and Mike Silva are going at it again tonight at 6pm.
If you get a chance, be sure to tune in as they have an interesting show planned. Among the guests include the first DH in MLB history, Ron Blomberg, who will talk about his book “Designated Hebrew” (that’s NOT a joke, it’s a real book and Ron wrote it with help from longtime baseball writer Dan Schlossberg). In addition, Marty Appel will be talking about HIS upcoming book about former Yankee great Thurman Munson — who some of you know is my all-time favorite player (how could a diehard Mets fan also love a Yankee? if you never saw Thurm play then you wouldn’t understand).
The show will be broadcast live at Mickey Mantle’s Restaurant (that’s where they get the name!) at 6pm on BlogTalkRadio. But if you can’t tune in then, no biggie — you can download the show anytime afterward and listen to it at your leisure (that’s what I usually do).
