  1. Does the 1962 title game radio broadcast exist? If yes, I’d love to purchase it. But it has to be the Packers radio guys, NOT the one from ny.
    Thanks.

  2. Ted Moore came to work for KTRI, 1470 AM right out of college. He covered sports & did play-by-play of the Sioux City Soos games among many other things. He had a neat 1951 Oldsmobile coupe with a V8 motor. He took me to the old Soos ball park with him & I’d establish his broadcast line via Northwestern Bell phone facilities and get his microphone 🎤 & amplifier hooked up. Time went on and one day in 2014 I read his obituary. He ended up in Wisconsin, his home state & broadcast the Green Bay Packers games. He was known as “THE VOICE OF THE GREEN BAY PACKERS.”
