Some have said that last week’s episode of It’s Pronounced Jordan, a selection of the sweet sounds of Auburn yesteryear garnished with wacky commentary and the thud of Ron Anders falling on the floor, was the finest half hour of radio in the history of The Drive, in the history of Auburn Network studios, in the hundred-year history of radio in Auburn altogether.
You be the judge. And again, my apologies to the family of Dr. John Day.
Posts mentioned in the broadcast: RPM: Glenn Tolbert’s “War Eagle”; RPM: “The Legend of Pat Sullivan”; RPM: Mysterious Auburn fan gives Bear Bryant the ‘Emfinger’ in ’69 Iron Bowl song; Beat Bama Beatbox, 1989, and (kinda sorta) Down, Set, HIPSTER! A two-year-old treatise on punks and pigskin (just in time for Georgia).
