    I think I remember him being on 66 WNBC back in the days when Imus was on in the morning & Stern was on in afternoon drive. Overnights or late night maybe.

    Stern devotes a nice chunk of his book to Soupy

    How come every time I write F you see K?

    I took my girl friend Peaches to a baseball game. I kissed her on the strikes, she kissed me on the balls.



    RIP to one of the all-time greats.

    Yep. Not sure he's a first-ballot Hall of Famer, but he's right up there.

    RIP.

    I had no idea he a) was still alive, b) worked blue.

    RIP.
