Let's welcome iconic Boston Globe columnist and Basketball Hall of Famer, Bob Ryan. His excellent book, ‘Scribe: My Life in Sports’ (2014), will be the framework of our multi-part conversation.

In this first instalment, we cover Bob’s early life in New Jersey - his parents’ influence on his love of sports, the first column he released as an 11-year old, his transition to grade school and on to Boston College where he’d first meet recently-retired NBA star, Bob Cousy - and a few years hence - the legendary Red Auerbach. Bob chats about calling the Eagles’ basketball games on student-run radio, graduating from BC and transitioning to The Boston Globe. You’ll hear the funny story behind Bob’s assignment to cover the Celtics and his unique experiences working the 1970 NBA Finals, amidst a who’s who of superstars at Madison Square Garden in New York. All that and plenty more – to top it all off, Bob’s recall is stunning.
