From his early days as the teenage announcer at Pony Colt Stadium and Sea-Arama Marineworld; to those first radio DJ days in Houston; how he got his start into the promo voice world with advice from then co-worker (and now ESPN sports journalist) Hannah Storm; along with stories from inside the Astros' Public Address Announcer booth. Bob also talks about his voice work at Fox Sports SW and SiriusXM, plus the lowdown on getting into the voiceover business. Bring your love of the game - and your headphones - to this entertaining episode!
