The LA skyline is a little dimmer today as one of our brightest lights is now shining in from another celestial plane. Today’s show honors the memory of Bronx born, honorary Angeleno Vin Scully, the voice of the Dodgers from 1950 to 2016.
In 1958, Scully followed the Dodgers from their original Brooklyn residence to their permanent home in our fair city of angels where he immediately became integral to the experience of being a fan. Through clips of some of Scully’s most legendary play by plays, interviews, and musings on the human condition alongside a smattering of songs recorded by, led by, or merely in celebration of this legend… we’re here to arrive as close as possible to the tribute this man deserves.
And what way to celebrate such a vibrant life than to dance? Plenty of our sonic nods to Scully, will have you movin’ and groovin’ through the tears. And when Beyoncé arrives toward the end of the stretch we’re left with no choice but to surrender, and move this entire operation over to the club.
