    Re: Fred White passed away

    My grandparents lived in KC and shared Royals season tickets while I was growing up. I was a huge Royals fan. Growing up in Marshalltown, I would try to listen to Royals games before bed. My parents would give me grief for listening to static all night as I would have foil wrapped around the antenna to barely listen to Fred and Denny from the tiny Dowling radio station that carried the games. I grew up listening to Fred, Denny and static. I was really excited when the "Royals guy" would announce Iowa State basketball games, too.

    Fred White was great. The team of Fred and Jon Sunvold was very good during Big 8 times. MBB: Iowa State vs. Nebraska (1996) - YouTube

    Me too. I really enjoyed listening to those guys.

    Others I loved: Herb Carneal, Halsey Hall and Ray Scott

    Growing up in Denver back in the day when you didn't see every game on TV Bob Martin and Larry Zimmer doing Broncos games brings back a lot of memories too.

    Hamm's the beer refreshing.
