Paul Hensler authors book about Connecticut radio icon Bob Steele

Dan with author Paul Hensler
Growing up in Connecticut, most people had their radios tuned in the morning to WTIC 1080, and for good reason.  The station's morning show was hosted by radio icon Bob Steele.  No one in the country garnered ratings like Steele.  No one will ever approach or dominate a market the way Steele did.  To say his ratings were off the charts would be an understatement.

Steele, who died in 2002, is the subject of a new book written by Paul Hensler: "Bob Steele On The Radio: The Life Of Connecticut's Beloved Broadcaster."  Those who were ardent Steele listeners knew of his love of sports, especially baseball and boxing.  It's one of the reasons I wanted Paul to be a guest.  After all, who could forget Steele's many zany sports predictions?

Before a Hartford Yard Goats game, I had the chance to interview Paul.  He provides some insight about the book, while also revealing information about Steele that should make this a very good read.
