2015 SEASON





             KMAQ...OUR 31st  SEASON   FOR CARDINAL BASEBALL.... AT 95.1

MIKE SHANNON, VOICE OF THE CARDINALS AND WITH THE CARDINAL ORGANIZATION FOR OVER 55 YEARS.....EMCEE FOR THE 2014 HALL OF FAME EVENT.

JOHN ROONEY INTERVIEWING COACH NORM STEWART AT LEFT IN 2014
THE LATE JACK  "THAT'S A WINNER"  BUCK....LONGTIME CARDINAL ANNOUNCER, CONSIDERED ONE OF THE BEST IN THE HISTORY OF MAJOR
LEAGUE BASEBALL.

THE CARDINAL RADIO NETWORK (KMOX LEAD STATION) EACH SPRING HAS A TWO-DAY PARTY FOR ALL THE AFFILIATES.   KMAQ'S FIRST YEAR ON THE
NETWORK WAS 1985 (THE CARDINALS WON THE WORLD SERIES THAT YEAR)
AND WE HAVE BEEN REPRESENTED AT THE EVENT  EVERY YEAR SINCE.
MOST WERE ATTENDED BY DENNIS AND LEIGHTON, AND IF WE BOTH COULD NOT MAKE IT, ONE OF US WOULD AND TAKE A GUEST.    EACH YEAR WE
SEE TWO GAMES WITH GOOD FOOD AND BEER, FROM SPECIAL PARTY ROOMS AND STAY AT A DOWNTOWN HOTEL, ALL COURTESY OF BUDWEISER.
FUN!    THE TOP PHOTO  WAS THE FIRST WE ATTENDED AND IN THE
PHOTO, YOUNG LEIGHTON HEPKER, YOUNG MIKE SHANNON AND YOUNG
JACK BUCK, NOW DECEASED....AND MASCOT "FREDBIRD".    WE HAVE A
PICTURE FROM EACH YEAR.   IN EARLY YEARS, WE EACH WERE PHOTOGRAPHED ALONE WITH THE ANNOUNCERS AND LATER, WE BOTH
ARE IN SAME PHOTO. 
IN THE PHOTO BELOW, IS ALSO JOE BUCK (SON OF JACK) , WHO IS NOW THE "LEAD TV ANNOUNCER" FOR FOX SPORTS.    HE DOES ALL THE BIG TV
GAMES AND STARTED OUT WORKING WITH HIS DAD ON THE CARDINAL
RADIO NETWORK.   YEARS AGO, HE WAS ONCE A GUEST ON KMAQ'S "JUST TALK" INTERVIEWED BY LEIGHTON AT THE START OF A NEW SEASON.
IF ADAM WAINWRIGHT PITCHES WELL AGAIN IN 2015, THE CARDINALS WILL
MAKE THE PLAYOFFS.
