"Giants Win The Pennant" LP Record Cover

A retrospective of the Giants' pennant-winning 1962 campaign, as presented by their flagship station, KSFO, featuring the voices of Russ Hodges and Lon Simmons plus an occasional entry by the third man in the booth, Bill King.San Francisco Giants

This recording was released as a long-playing album on Fantasy Records (catalog number GB-1962) and was produced by Franklin Mieuli, who also owned San Francisco's KHIP (106.9 FM) and had a close relationship with Berkeley-based Fantasy, which was best known as a jazz label.

Following the 1962 Giants' season, the entrepreneurial Mieuli sold KHIP, bought the NBA's fledgling Philadelphia Warriors, moved them to San Francisco, and hired Bill King as his play-by-play man.

All four men mentioned here Hodges (2008), Simmons (2006), King (2006) and Mieuli (2007) have been honored by induction into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame.
