Historic Cubs Content on the Museum of Broadcast Communications Website

 

If you’re into historic/nostalgic Cubs footage, the Museum of Broadcast Communications is a must see.  The website is www.museum.tv – you must sign up for a user account, but it is free of charge.  I just watched the complete 8th and 9th innings of Don Cardwell’s no-hitter; it's 20 minutes of WGN’s coverage of the game, including at-bats by Stan Musial and Ernie Banks and the on-field, post game interview with Cardwell after the no-no. 

 

Once you sign-up, click on "Search the Archives" in the TV section, then search for "Cubs".  There’s a ton of Cubs related content on there, including a montage of classic Jack Brickhouse calls – there‘s the no hitters by Holtzman & Pappas, an eerie call where Brickhouse discusses the Cubs turning a triple-play right before Manny Sanguillen hits in to one, there’s a Harry Caray special and a 1984 end of the season/playoff preview special and more.

 

The only drawback is you can’t play the content in full screen mode.  The box that the videos play in is rather small.  Still, this content is worth seeing, especially if you enjoy watching old time footage of Cubs legends.

 

Al, I hope you don’t mind me directing your users to another website, but I think a lot of fans will enjoy the content.
