You’ve got a reserved box seat for the second podcast of a Rare & Scratchy Rock N' Roll baseball music doubleheader – covering rock, pop, rhythm and blues and baseball.

But first, a little pre-game patter about the platters we’re about to play. Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll show number _017, the first part of this two-part podcast set explores race relations and rock. This Rare & Scratchy Rock ‘N Roll podcast number 18 features an all-star roster of 25 baseball songs that rocked.  

This lineup includes the only two Hall of Famers to perform on hit singles, a rhythm and blues star who simultaneously played the outfield for five teams, and several other players who went to bat in pop music, but struck out.

Then there’s the Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry, and John Fogerty - baseball music connection and the trendsetting version of the national anthem at a World Series game that caused a national controversy.

So, get your musical scorecard ready. The opening pitch for baseball show number two starts when you click to download this show.

Laurie and I listened to a couple of your podcasts and really enjoyed them. The baseball efforts were very well done. Being Musial fan, (I was born on his birthday), it was fun to hear him included playing his harmonica. He always had it with him at various functions in STL. I had no idea that you were Harry Caray's boss at one time. I'm sure you have interesting stories about that experience.
It was nice to see you and Linda, thanks for sharing your website with us. I look forward to listening to more podcasts. Hope you have a Happy New Year and best wishes,

I knew Lee May was a free swinger -- who knew he was a fine singer? Radio Dave (not me). Another hit episode of our favorite podcast,
