    Howard Cosell Speaking of Sports would play on ABC radio during the 70's and 80's. It was a minute or so of Cosell expounding on some subject most didn't or wouldn't. He was probably the only broadcaster who'd do such without concern for anyone's feelings or for his job.

    I recall him being voted the best and worst broadcaster in the same poll.
    I recall Speaking of Sports quite well. We used to have WABC on our school bus and SOS would be board cast at 8:25 AM just as the bus was arriving at school. Some board casts were more memorable than others. I recall the morning after RFK vividly.

    Howard would finish with the sponsor tag-line “Drive a Datsun, then Decide !!!” For the young-ones, the name was changed to Nissan later on.
