What an amazing conversation with Bob Miller, voice of the Los Angeles Kings for 44 years. We talk about Bob’s passion for broadcasting and how he started doing play-by-play during his Little League games that he played in as a child. His time growing up in Iowa and Wisconsin and doing play-by-play for the NCAA national champion Wisconsin Badgers coached by Bob Johnson. His break getting the play-by-play job with the Los Angeles Kings. Stories about then owner Jack Kent Cooke. His reaction to the Kings trade for the great one, Wayne Gretzky. The lean years and  the two Stanley Cup runs. Memorabilia in his office. His interview with Vince Lombardi. His relationship with Chick Hearn.
