OT-ish - Iconic Sports Calls of the last 25 years

OT-ish - Iconic Sports Calls of the last 25 years

Submitted by JeepinBen on May 7th, 2014 at 12:15 PM

So all across my twitter feed today there have been pictures of one quite iconic call from 25 years ago on this date:

Shot on Ehlo.... GOOOOOOOOOD!!!!

If you didn't picture Jordan's jump and fistpump, you haven't been paying attention. What other calls stand out to you in the last 25 years? Any Michigan related? One that sticks in my brain is "GALLON, they left him alone!" It always amazes me how hearing radio and/or TV calls can bring one back to exactly where they were the moment they heard it.

I'm listening to Ann Arbor's Big Show on Sports Talk 1050 WTKA right now.  Ben Holden is hosting the show again.  He's been hosting the show the last couple of Mondays.  Does anybody know what happened to the usual Monday host Jeff "Raddy" Radford?  No mention of either guy on WTKA's website.

Calling all old-timers: Beckmann's famous on-air break-up?

So I was perusing the vast archive of Michigan football games on CD or DVD that are available for purchase on Art Vuolo, Jr.'s website and I came across an interesting entry.  Listed among the games available from the 1984 is the following:

Northwestern V [DVD] (Famous Beckmann on-air break-up)

The Beckmann he is referring to is obviously Frank Beckmann, long-time radio play-by-play man, but can anyone shed some light on this famous "on-air break-up?" I have absolutely no recollection of this game and was hoping that maybe one of our more "experienced" fans might remember the incident to which Vuolo refers.

Out of Town Streaming Radio Feed on iPhone Help for Friday's Game

Submitted by mgokev on March 8th, 2011 at 12:07 PM

Hello everyone, I need some help from the Ann Arbor locals.  I am not from the Ann Arbor/Detroit area, aside from the brief 4 year stint in undergrad, so I'm not familiar with the local radio shows and who broadcasts the game. 

This Friday I will be on the road traveling and need to find a way to stream a broadcast of the game through my iPhone since I'm not going to be within range to pick up the game over regular radio waves.  I have heard of iheartradio apps, etc, and am hoping others here have used online streaming apps to find the broadcast. 

I checked mgoblue.com and they only have ESPN listed as TV source (not ESPN Radio) and streaming audio from mgoblue (but will that work through an iPhone?). 

Has anyone done this before?  Thanks for the help...

Dont forget folks should you be stuck out this New Years day...you can still catch the game. Check the sticky regarding listening to the game on the mgoboard and you can find it on Radio, Smart phone, Satellite...

There are also some instuctions on how to watch the game while listening to the Michigan announcers which I am doing right now...

and dear lord the stupid bells are annoying, cant believe any league allows that stuff, its mega-annoying.

[ed - Stickied for now. -FA]

Far be it from me to self request a sticky, but I think this information might really help people as it seemed to be asked over and over again during the live blog yesterday.  Feel free to comment and add information, lord knows these are not the only sources of radio on game day.

 

If you want to listen to a Michigan football broadcast go here:

1. Local Radio in Ann Arbor - 1050AM WTKA, 102.9FM

2. Local Radio in Detroit - 950 AM WWJ

3. To listen to the game on the net goto: http://www.mgoblue.com/allaccess/

4. To listen to the game on your Iphone or Android:  1. Go to the App store and get the free application "iheartradio".  2. Run the "iheartradio" app.  3. Go to the all cities link, and search for Grand Rapids, Michigan.  4.  Search for the station WOOD 1300AM, the game will be on there.  [Blue Okie provides an additional source: Big Ten Network app for smart phones also carries the radio broadcast for each team.]

*How to listen to our announcers versus Pam Ward:  In the past, the stream on the net was so far behind the video broadcast that you could use a DVR to hold the video for a few moments and the play by play would then catch up.  This year at least in the first few games the mgoblue feed has been much quicker and thus you could not do this anymore.  I am happy to report that as of yesterday the 'iheartradio' feed is significantly behind the video (at least on ESPNU) and thus you could listen to our announcers, and watch the video using a DVR to match the two up. 

5. Satellite Radio: a. Sirius radio is an official sponsor of many colleges, including Michigan, therefore every game will be on Sirius (thanks MGoShoe)  b. XM does not have specific contracts with schools, but does have league sets of channels (Big Ten, ACC, etc.) While I am local and have not had to use Satellite to listen in that often, I have heard games not locally available on XM through their Big Ten Feeds...One warning for those using Satellite radio, at least a few years ago when I listened to a game, you get only the game itself thus no pregame, no aftergame.  The radio turns on right when the game starts and cuts off right when the game ends
