a recorded radio broadcast of most of the 1968-69 regular
season basketball game between Messick and Christian Brothers
High School. It comes in several minutes into the first half
and ends about a minute before the finish. The halftime show
is an interview with Coach Neil Cordell about Messick's
prospects in the upcoming baseball season.
The announcer is Hall of Fame sportscaster Jack Eaton.
Sound quality is very poor but understandable. (Remember this
is a 1969 radio broadcast copied from reel-to-reel and then
minicassette before it was converted to digital format.)
Left click on the Messick basketball logo to listen to the
game in streaming format. It should open a new window or tab
with a small media player, and you can listen to the game as
it downloads. (If you have a dialup connection there will be
long pauses as the download progresses.)
Right click on the image and choose "Save Link Target As" (in
Firefox) or "Save Target As" (in Internet Explorer) to
download the file to your own computer. The file is a little
over 41 megabytes, so plan accordingly.
Thanks to Bruce Wilson for contributing this.
And in case you're wondering, Messick lost, 49-59. At least we
had a winning season (16-9).
