An excellent option! In my construction power plant years I listened to a lot of games on CBS radio with the two. Buck goes back to 1960 broadcasting AFL games for ABC, then switched to CBS several years later. Jack Buck was a pure professional in every sense of the word. Stram complimented him perfectly with his football knowledge.

With the World Series going on, I can still hear Jack Buck's voice as he was doing the call on Mutual radio network for the 1988 series-game one with Kurt Gibson hitting that home run off Dennis Eckersley. And Buck's voice saying.

"I don't believe what I just saw!"
"I DON"T BELIEVE WHAT I JUST SAW!"

If there was a Mount Rushmore for radio broadcasters, Jack Buck should be on it!

I lived a lot of years overseas and relied on Armed Forces Radio Network for most of my sports and listened to those two a lot and agree......Stram was a favorite as the Chiefs were my favorite team for some reason as a kid (never lived in KC, just picked them and followed them Len Dawson, Otis Taylor, Willie Lanier days).

Last few years, I've been listening to Monday night games on my commute, I like Esiason & James Lofton..
WMAL used to advertise that back when they had the games.. turn your TV down and your radio up.

I listen to the broadcasts on SiriusXM as we only get Redskins games here when it's a national broadcast. Panthers are the #1, followed by the Falcons and CBS usually shows the Steelers.

Sonny sounds bad this year. I have no doubts this is his final year. He's still sharp, unlike Sam Huff in his final years.. But he sounds just awful.

They won a Super Bowl with that bunch. They're playing well tonight so far except for that interception, many think that this will be their year.

There was great chemistry between Jack Buck and Hank Stram, enjoyed many of their broadcasts. When I had to run errands or whatnot, listening to them on the radio was always a pleasure. I agree on your Mount Rushmore comment!
