Ken Korach, radio voice for the Oakland Athletics, has been working on a book about the legendary Athletics radio broadcaster Bill King. This book will be released by Wellstone Books on Friday, September 6, 2013. The book promises to offer a personal look at the late, great broadcaster who would often claim that he has a face for radio.
On a personal note: I remember listening to hundreds of Oakland Athletics games on the radio growing up. I loved listening to Bill King give the play by play. He had a way of transporting you to the ballpark in a way no one else could. Whenever I heard his voice on the radio I couldn’t help, but get excited for Athletics baseball even during the down years. His voice is surely missed.
Bill King is as important to Oakland Athletics baseball as Vin Scully is to Los Angeles Dodgers baseball.
