Splitty dying has me in a reflective, nostalgic mood. When I first started to get into the Royals, Split had only been doing the play-by-play for a year so. Regardless, he is and always will be the face and voice of Royals baseball.
I listen to 98% of the games, so it doesn't make a lot of sense, and it's neither here nor there. When I watched games on TV, if Splitty was announcing, it was a HUGE plus.
And back in the 90s, he was there announcing for almost every TV game.
He was awesome.....great knowledge of the game, and modest....and humble.
Anyway, the point of this post is to ask: can one find old TV (or radio) broadcasts of Royals games?
I've often thought that it'd be awesome if I was stuck in the mountains in a cabin, and I didn't have anything to keep me company but recordings of Royals games from the past.
I've even contemplated recording the radio broadcasts, and starting a collection of old random games from which I could blindly draw and have an afternoon of nostalgia, etc.
