    I believe he was on Sporting News radio for a time:

    Yeah, I did to, I have to admit. Fun Vegas guy.

    I remember listening to him 20 years ago. Him and crap I can't remember the guy who followed him on One on One Sports back in the day. Of course I thought he was 62 back then. But he was entertaining.

    Yes, before ESPN Radio really took off, One on One Sports was the only national sports talk game in town. Used to love to listen to Papa Joe, Arnie Spanier and the uber-caustic Bob Kemp during my long trips to and from college back in the day.

    Arnie! That's who I couldn't remember. They were a pretty good 1-2 punch late night. Fell asleep listening to their respective schticks back in the day.

    Yeah, I have fond memories of the One-on-One Sports network from the late 1990s ... Czaban in the morning, Johnny Renshaw 9-1, Peter Brown 1-5, Papa Joe from 5-9, Arnie Spanier from 9-1, and of course, Kemp overnights.

    When I was ASE at the Brownsville Herald back in the day, I passed many a late-night desk shift listening to Spanier, and any time I'd cover something up in San Antonio, Kemp would keep me company on the long drive home through 100 miles of no-man's land in between Kingsville and Raymondville. Good radio, good times.

    Papa Joe was a bit of a sexist, but "Bite Me Wednesday" was must-listen radio for me. RIP.

    Agreed on "Bite me Wednesday." And Wherever he's going, I'm sure they have the dish.

    I don't have anything else to add.

    He was pretty entertaining. I remember when he and Arnie Spanier were back to back in the afternoons. Spanier's a good chat too. Met him at a Dallas eatery once.

    That's too bad. Listened to him in college and even sent in a postcard, on his behalf, to become the commissioner of MLB in 1997.

    A bit of an "old man" on the radio but he had some good schtick.
