I listen to it every week, whether I'm in the Hamptons and tune into it on 88.3 FM or whether I'm traveling and listen to it on my lap top at www.peconicpublicbroadcasting.org. Ann's experiences in the sports world is fascinating as she brings her keen insight and knowledge to all of her interviews!"

"Ann, Thanks so much for inviting me to speak on your show this morning. I appreciate deeply your thoughtful questions, questions that both have a sense of fun, that are reflective, and that capture the key points in the book. Truly, an "Innerview."
-Brian Ross
 
"Ann's weekly Sports Innerview radio show on WPPB 88.3FM is the last intelligent sports talk show left in the universe."
-the late Mike Celizic, sports columnist and author
 
Dear Ann:

I've done lots of interviews for The Big Show, but it has never once occurred to me to thank the interviewer (I'm kinda self-centered, I guess), but you were so fantastic that I must thank you.

Your reaction to the book was exactly what I was hoping for when I wrote it - you're pretty much my ideal reader! It was a delight to talk to you.

I am now officially your biggest fan on the West Coast.

Thanks again,
Neal McCabe, Author, 'The Big Show, Charles M Conlon's Golden Age Baseball Photograghs.'
