Marty Glickman spent 12 years at WFUV teaching the student broadcasters the art of doing play-by-play. He began with Bob Papa and his final pupil was Spero Dedes. Spero gives his recollection of Marty including what he meant to him and his feelings upon seeing the new HBO Documentary "Glickman". You can also hear Bob and Spero talk with Andrew Bogusch and Rich McLaughlin, also students of Marty, in special One on One interviews this past Saturday.
Marty Glickman was a great athlete, a great broadcaster and a great broadcast coach. His prowess on the football field and in track is well documented. The Olympic snub shall forever remain an embarrassment to the USOC. “Swish”, “good, like Nedicks”. “It’s high enough, it’s deep enough, it’s good” and “a couple a-three yards” became part of New York broadcasting lexicon. He created the method and set the standard for broadcasting basketball on the radio and he was the reason people turned down the TV sound to hear Giants’ football on the radio.
