Marty on CD

The Reds Hall of Fame and Museum has announced it will be the exclusive 2006 holiday-season carrier of “Marty Brennaman: The Voice of the Reds,” a CD of classic Brennaman radio calls that spans the entirety of the Hall of Fame announcer’s broadcasting career with the Reds.

The CD will be available for sale at the Reds Hall of Fame (located adjacent to Great American Ball Park) beginning Wednesday. Due to the late arrival of the CD, there will be no shipping available for Christmas delivery. You may pick up your copy in person at the Reds Hall of Fame. Please note that the museum will closed on Dec. 24.

Produced, written and recorded by Chicago Cubs radio announcer Pat Hughes, the Brennaman CD is the latest installment in Hughes’ “Baseball Voices: The Hall of Fame Series” that already includes CDs dedicated to Hall of Fame announcers Jack Buck and Harry Caray.

“I am thrilled to death Pat wanted me as the third in the series of Hall of Fame announcers,” said Brennaman. “Personally speaking, I have had a chance to listen to it, and he did a heck of a job. He’s got stuff on there that most people probably don’t know about and haven’t heard.”

The Brennaman CD will retail for $18, and 50 percent of the proceeds from each sale benefits the Reds Hall of Fame. Reds fans can call (513) 765-7923 for more information.
