Radio host Bob Edwards tells of his 12 years with sportscaster Red Barber on National Public Radios (NPR) Morning Edition. Barbers commentaries on Fridays at 7:35 A.M. wove together tales from sports events past, his views of the current athletic scene, biblical allegories, historical references, & the latest goings-on among the flora & fauna of his garden. Those commentaries became one of NPRs best-loved features, & Barber became a grandfather figure for his listeners, dispensing wisdom & advice along with the anecdotes & reminisces. Through the years, their friendship grew & bloomed in full aural view of an appreciative audience. Photos.
