NY Times on KMOX and how the Mississippi River Valley filled up with Cardinals fans

The NY Times has a wonderful story to illustrate how a lot of folks in the Mississippi River Valley became Cardinals fans:  The reporter takes off from St. Louis just before the start of a World Series game there, to see if he can outdrive the stations signal before the game ends.  By game end, he’s in North Mississippi and concludes he could have got a clear signal down to the coast.

Baseball is a great game for radio (particularly for a team with announcer like Jack Buck, who was announcing at KMOX through much of my youth), and it was following night games on KMOX that made me a Cardinals fan.  It may be that I’ve followed the team less well in the years since I ceased trying to follow through the radio.
