Eyes on the Ball - Pgm 11

April 20th, 2008

"Eyes on the Ball" was a public service program distributed by Better Vision Institute featuring sports commentator Bill Stern spinning yarns and music by Monica Lewis and the Alfredo Antonini Ensemble.  This is another show that I haven't found any references to in various sources on the web; it probably dates from 1947-48.

Episode #11, "Eyes Score Touchdowns", features a story about a football game between Notre Dame and Southern California and how the Trojans went on to win based on what they had seen in the game and Stern's thoughts about how observation, rather than brute force, is important in football.  Songs in the show include "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "Whispering".
