XTRA Sports mid-day show, 'JJ, Roxy and the Mouth', scored a coup by getting Yankees Mgr. Joe Girardi for a phono at 2: 10 this afternoon.
KNBR tried to get Girardi first, but couldn't pull it off.
Personal plug: I'll be doing the show at 1: 10 to plug my "Tribute to Vida Blue" event in Oakland at Ozumo on July 14. Yes, its a shameless plug and yes, I'm shameless.
**Did you notice the virtual media blackout over the July 4th weekend? Sure, your favorite shows still aired, but mostly everyone with a name decided to take a three-day weekend, including the local radio talkies, anchors--national too.
God forbid a major news story breaks out on the 4th or Christmas--wait, one did--the infamous Christmas, 2009 undie-bomber in Detroit.
**Giants pbp tonsil, Jon Miller, will be honored before the game, Friday, July 16 at AT&T Park. Miller is headed to baseball's Hall of Fame broadcast wing in August.
**Speaking of Hall of Fame, Bob Feller, the Cleveland Indians famed HOF pitcher and now broadcaster, (he's 91 and is as lucid as ever) spent a cool ten minutes or so with A's CC broadcasters, Ray Fosse and Glenn Kuiper last Saturday night.. Very special and cool. Great stories by Feller, who looks damn good for 91 and extra credit to Fosse and Kuiper to let Feller carry the appearance and he did so
