Making Airwaves: 60+ Years at Milo’s Microphone

Making Airwaves: 60+ Years at Milo’s Microphone (2007)

Milo Hamilton has called 11 no-hitters and a World Series, often in tandem with such broadcast legends as Jack Buck, Jack Brickhouse, Bob Elson, and Harry Caray. His work was so well-received that he was enshrined into the broadcasters wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992. He received an even more unexpected honor eight years later: election to the exclusive Radio Hall of Fame, of which only seven other baseball broadcasters belong. He has truly managed to work his way up from humble origins. The story he tells in Making Airwaves: 60 Years at Milo’s Microphone is a profile in courage, a tale of talent and determination, and a behind-the-scenes look at seven decades of baseball history.
