She was one of Roller Derby's biggest stars in the 1960s and '70s, skating with Philly's Eastern Warriors for much of her career, and now Judy Arnold visits the Philly Pressbox Radio Roundtable. Judy will tell Bill Furman and Jim "Chet" Chesko why Roller Derby was so popular in that era, discuss some of the sport's other big stars (Judy Sowinski, Buddy Atkinson Jr., Little Richard Brown, etc.) and talk about acting as Raquel Welch's stunt double in the 1972 movie "Kansas City Bomber." Today, Judy Arnold travels the country as an evangelist. Also on the program, Bill and Chet will discuss the resurgent Phillies, Odubel Herrera being named an All-Star, and how new 76ers Ben Simmons and Timothe Luwawu have looked in NBA Summer League action. There’s also our Philly sports trivia question and prize courtesy Carl’s Cards & Collectibles, with this week's prize an autographed picture of Phillies Carlos Ruiz and Matt Stairs; Carl Henderson himself visits the show, too! It’s all brought to you by shopforkisses.org, the online shopping network of the Kisses for Kyle Foundation.
