In this special interview, I talk to my father, born in 1935 Chicago, about his experiences as a young sports fan in the 1940s, '50s and '60s. From Bronko Nagurski to Sandy Koufax, with a little bit of Citizen Kane thrown in for good measure, there's a trove of good stories to be heard. (Bonus: The debut of the Word to the Weisman theme song, from lamekids, composed and performed by a very special member of the family.)
