It's a counterculture deep dive with the voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers Charley Steiner sharing his lesser known, but no less intense passion for music through the lens of the 1965 debut self-titled album by The Paul Butterfield Blues Band. Emboldened by Jack Keroac's On The Road, the radio deejay-turned-sports broadcaster recalls leaving the country for the first time with the destination set for a small blues club in Montreal to watch Chicago's first integrated electro-funk-blues-rock-jazz fusion outfit making music history in more ways than one. And just like 23 year-old Paul Butterfield adopted the sounds from a previous generation, Steiner confides he would practice announcing baseball games in his basement with the TV on silent, dreaming that one day, he'd be so fortunate as to follow in Vin Scully's footsteps only to realize the feat in his Gump-ian life of seemingly endless serendipity.
