Mike Murphy

I was bummed to read this morning that Mike Murphy has hung up his headphones and retired from ESPN AM 1000. He wasn't everyone's cup of tea, but I always enjoyed listening to his show. He and I shared a love/hate relationship with our favorite team (the Cubs). I even appeared on his show when EveryCubEver came out, and put him in the updated version of the book when he told me that he caught the only homer of Jose Arcia's career.

(Check out this fascinating Mediaburn video of Murphy in action back in the 1990s.)

I hope he changes his mind. He had a unique voice on Chicago sports radio.
