LISTEN: 2015 Hall of Fame Exclusive Coverage
By Neil A. Carousso
For the second year in a row, I covered the National Baseball Hall of Fame Weekend and induction ceremony in Cooperstown, New York. My coverage for WRHU-FM in 2015 included two talk shows: “Long Island Community Spotlight Special with Basia and Neil A. Carousso” and “WRHU’s 2nd Annual Hall of Fame Live Special with Neil A. Carousso.”
The “LICS Special,” which aired on Sunday, July 26, 2015 from 11-12 Noon EDT, was a talk show dedicated to the history of baseball, a celebration of America’s Pastime, discussions about Cooperstown, where the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is located, and the latest topics and concerns in today’s game.
The “Hall of Fame Live Special” was a live talk show on Sunday, July 26, 2015 from 12 Noon-1:30 PM EDT from the 2015 National Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Cooperstown, New York. Guests included Kenny Albert of Fox Sports, Bob Nightengale of USA Today and Howie Rose, the radio voice of the New York Mets. Discussions with audio ranged from the 2015 class of Craig Biggio, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz to the “steroid era” and the Pete Rose gambling controversy and whether or not he should be reinstated in Major League Baseball.
