When Kenny Albert was growing up, family gatherings sounded a lot like a dispatch from the first all-sports radio station. There was his father, Marv, whose voice shaped the sound of modern basketball, and there too were his uncles Al and Steve&mdash;a trio of professional play-by-play men with a listenership that spanned the country.<br /><br />It was only a matter of time before Kenny, armed with a toy tape recorder, yearned to follow in their footsteps.<br /><br />Some 3,000 broadcasts later, Kenny Albert has amassed countless stories from the world of sports and media. <em>A Mic for All Seasons</em> is his chronicle of a charmed yet unlikely journey, from a youth spent calling games in his bedroom for a fictitious audience to ten-hour bus rides with a minor-league hockey team, plus the time he worked five different sports in one chaotic, 19-day stretch.<br /><br />The only play-by-play broadcaster who currently calls all four major sports in North America, Albert details the stand-out moments from his three-decade career, including the 1994 Stanley Cup Final, Jose Bautista&#39;s bat flip in the 2015 ALCS, and the U.S. women&rsquo;s hockey Olympic gold-medal winning shootout in Pyeongchang in 2018.<br /><br />Part memoir, part behind-the-scenes look at the world of broadcast media, <em>A Mic for All Seasons</em> also features stories about life in the booth, game preparation, travel hijinks, marquee events, meetings with star athletes and coaches, and much more.
