Get Ready for Some Baseball!

bb-blogIt’s that time of year, where baseball fans of all ages gear up for the upcoming season. Although it’s soggy and wet (and even snowing in some parts) here in Northern California, there are places like Arizona and Florida where the sun is shining. We will just have to live vicariously through those fortunate fans of the sun belt who are watching their favorite teams get ready for baseball..

For the folks that can’t make the trek to Arizona or Florida, there’s nothing like listening to baseball on the radio. We hear time and again from our customers that baseball is what started their life long love of radio. There are many who even take their pocket radio to the game because they prefer the play by play of their beloved radio sportscaster to the announcer in the stadium. Some of the most famous voices in radio are baseball announcers. Wikipedia has an quite a list of current MLB announcers.

Sports talk continues to be an area of consistent growth for radio. With pre-game shows, post game shows and every imaginable facet of sports being covered 24/7 by ESPN, Westwood One, Fox Sports plus many local independent stations, there isn’t a shortage of options when it comes to listening to sports talk radio. Often local stations are broadcasting high school and college games as well.

If you find yourself having trouble pulling in the game, call us up and we can help you figure out which radio might be the best solution for your specific situation.

 

 

Poem to the Pocket Radio

CC Pocket RadioThis poem to the Pocket Radio came about when Bob was explaining how he didn’t quite understand exactly why pocket radios are so popular. This was news to us – we just assumed our radio expert loved radio regardless of its form.

We scoured past emails and reviews and pulled out several of the mentions of where and how customers are using these radios. Bob knows that people are passionate about their pocket radios. He mentioned that he’s never seen the gardener without his. We know Bob uses his for his important Sunday show. You sometimes see delivery and bus drivers with one wedged in their dash. This relationship seems very personal. So we’re asking you – why do you love your pocket radio and how do you use it the most?

Poem to the Pocket Radio

Oh Radio where art thou
I need your touch right now
Your companionship I desire
While I complete tasks so dire

You’re there when I’m walking
And when I can’t sleep
You’re with me in the garden
When the weeds are so deep

You are with me in the shop
And out on the boat
And once I cursed you
When you did not float

At the ballgames between cheers
The voices come through oh so clear
You travel with me everywhere
With you I have a love affair

Ah, yes my friend I owe to you
A true expression of gratitude
You’ve provided entertainment for years
You bring me laughter, joy and tears

Because of this I carry you
I never feel lonely and blue
Oh, pocket radio you are my friend
I’ll be with you ‘til the end.
