Metro Detroit: Newsmakers Jan. 21, 2010




Detroit Free Press:

As a young man growing up in the projects of Royal Oak Township, a community just north of Detroit, I have memories of watching and listening to the sights and sounds of sports. It was the late 1950s and early '60s, and most of the sights and sounds came by way of the radio. We'd hear the words and sounds while our imagination provided the sights -- put them together and it was all good. The next-best thing to being there. Soon those magnificent radio voices that had been our front-row ticket to the world of sports gave way to television. On the local scene, names like Al Ackerman and Dave Diles fed us a solid diet of sports, and the smooth and melodic voice of Charlie Neal delivered sports to our living rooms...
