NBA Mascots

WNYC’s The Next Big Thing

As soon as you start limping, you become a man in an animal suit.

Dean Olsher’s program The Next Big Thing is one of the best things that’s no longer on the radio. The opening sequence alone, with the archival tape from WNYC’s early days, was worth the price of admission.

Dean asked me to file a story on the NBA Mascots meeting in Las Vegas.
