This week’s program will include an encore presentation of our conversation with Tommy Hawkins, the Emmy Award-nominated broadcaster, renaissance man and former NBA star who passed away on Aug. 16, 2017 at the age of 80. Tommy Hawkins enjoyed a 10-year career in the NBA for both the Minneapolis Lakers, the Los Angeles Lakers and the old Cincinnati Royals, playing alongside such Hall of Famers as Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Elgin Baylor and Oscar Robertson. When his basketball career ended, he embarked on new challenges, first in radio and television (including co-hosting Mid-Morning Los Angeles with Stephanie Edwards and Meredith MacRae, as well as broadcasting for NBC Sports), then as a baseball executive for 18 years with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

At the time we spoke to Tommy in February 2012, he had just published a coffee table book, Life’s Reflections: Poetry for the People, that reflects his many interests, which include such subjects as sports, jazz, art, poetry, travel, life, love, family, and the turbulent decade known as the 1960s. We talked about his playing career, his passion for poetry, and how Regis Philbin played a key role in one of his first breaks as a broadcaster. We’ll replay our conversation with Tommy Hawkins in our second hour.

Our first hour this week will feature an encore presentation of our special holiday-themed edition of The Sounds of Lost Television. Phil Gries will play rare audio highlights of some of the earliest surviving network TV coverage of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, including clips from broadcasts hosted by Lorne Greene, Betty White, Martin Milner, Kent McCord and June Lockhart, as well as highlights from vintage network Thanksgiving TV specials, including programs hosted by Dean Martin and Bob and Ray.
