As a small boy, Red Barber heard over the radio the Dempsey-Carpenter fight - the first sports event to be broadcast. Today, with the ability to view such events in an almost virtual reality, the charm of listening to the broadcaster coming out of that box may seem very remote from the present. However, broadcasters like Red Barber on baseball and Kearn Tips on football, had the ability to paint a visual picture for the rapt unseen audience.Red Recalls the likes of Graham McNamee, Ted Husing, Bill Slater, Harry Wismer, Bill Munday and Bill Stern
