These days we have TV coverage on everything from obscure amateur sports through to massive national and international events, but in many ways sports coverage was as big back then as it is now with people crowding around the radio to enjoy everything from baseball to boxing.

TV offers a visual insight that radio couldn't possibly compete with, but in many ways radio provided a magical connection to events that sparked the imagination, got the adrenalin pumping, and brought people together.

Today we take it for granted that we can watch an event as it is happening, but when radio was king it was almost beyond comprehension that you could listen in to an event that was happening hundreds, or even thousands of miles away.
