    Jim Rooker, Bob Prince, Nellie, and Rosey Rosewell

    The latter, long time Buc announcer (before the Gunner)--when the Bucs would homer--would yell "Open the window, Aunt Minnie, here she comes." And then he would break a pane of glass with a hammer in the radio booth! I think later, they figured out a way to record the "breaking glass" and just played that.

    Prince, in the 50's, also teamed with Joe Tucker to do Steeler games.

    Joe Tucker, long time "voice of the Steelers," once did Bucco games, too, at least on a fill in basis, as did Mike Lange.

    Jim Woods--who Prince called "The Possum," a very congenial guy and good announcer, was Prince's long time associate.

    Following them, the Pirates started bringing in white bread guys with no personalities, including the very forgettable Milo Hamilton! For me, Lannie Frattare (sp) also fit that bland description. But he was there for 30 or more years.

    I never liked Lanny. He was boring, repetitious and DIDN'T get better with age, IMHO. He was just.................there..............

    I grew up listening to Lanny every night on the radio. (I started listening with Prince and King). Just hearing his voice brings back childhood memories of some very good Pirates teams.

    Since they no longer are on KDKA, I can pick up radio broadcast and--with their crappy play--just follow them on the Net. But, I quickly got to dislike Greg Brown, as an announcer, too.

    Once again, no personality and nothign exceptional about his play by play or color commentary,
    when he did the latter.
