Long before he hit the big time as the play-by-play voice of the Texas Longhorns and San Antonio Spurs, sportscaster Bill Schoening paid lots of dues. “Stories, Sports, and Songs” is a collection of 101 tales that chronicle Schoening’s unlikely and often humorous radio journey. It started with the childhood dream of a 4th grader in inner-city Philadelphia and continued to small market stations in rural areas of Central Illinois and West Texas. Along the way, he wrote melodies and lyrics about his life experiences. Schoening’s broadcasting career now spans over four decades, and he has spent half of those years with the Spurs, describing four NBA titles during his 21 seasons.
