EPISODE 103: A WEDDING AND A FUNERAL

Like anyone who wanted to know the score of a Laker’s game while stuck in traffic on the 405, I switched over my dusty, chipped radio dial to KNX-1070, hundreds of times, sitting in my Honda Prelude, with no A/C — that’s where I heard the smooth-voiced and avuncular updates from a sportscaster who always felt like family. But to Gina Grad, he was literally family. Legendary broadcaster and Gina’s dad, Steve Grad passed away last week after an extended illness. Today, on Easy Listening, a podcast about podcasts — we focus on a man that constructed his own mic as kid, spoke into one across decades in radio and TV, and lived long enough to see his daughter on the podcast stage. We have some favorite father/daughter clips, and a remembrance from Adam Carolla. Teresa Strasser and Gina Grad welcome you to the show.
