The Bedford & Sullivan podcast returns for its 58th episode!
Howard Kellman grew up in Sheepshead Bay, on East 23rd Street between Avenue U and Avenue V, a block from the border of Sheepshead Bay and Flatbush. He began doing play-by-play for St. Johns basketball while a junior at Brooklyn College, but he couldn't keep away from his passion, calling baseball games. He started calling the AAA Indianapolis Indians games in 1974, and has been ever since (including some years with Carl Erskine as his broadcast booth partner.) Born 1952, Howard will discuss growing up in Brooklyn, what he remembers of those last Dodger days, his recollection of the early Mets years, and how he got into broadcasting.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT 10/15/14 AT 8 PM EST. SOME GOOD CRAIC IS BACK WITH FIDDLER TONY DEMARCO !!!
Tony DeMarco: Irish fiddler. If that sounds slightly off, you have only to listen to the music on this recording to be cured of any preconceptions about the importance of ethnic purity in traditional music. There may have been a time when Irish music in New York City was played exclusively by Irish immigrants and their offspring, while their Italian neighbors strummed mandolins and sang opera. But the Big Apple really is a melting pot, at least for some of its disparate immigrant elements. Before World War II it really wasn’t very common for Italian and Irish Americans to marry each other. By the 1950s, however, this kind of ethnic mixing was fairly normal in Tony’s native Brooklyn, where the Italians and Irish lived side by side and attended the same parish churches.
Tony was born on May 20, 1955, the second of three children raised in East Flatbush by Paul DeMarco and his wife, the former Patricia Dempsey. Paul, a grandson of Italian immigrants, was a teenage lightweight boxing star who turned down an offer to turn pro and work with lightweight champ Paddy “Billygoat” DeMarco in order to pursue a more conventional career on Wall Street. Tony’s maternal grandfather Jimmy Dempsey was a New York City cop and a son of Irish immigrants who married Philomena “Minnie” Fenimore, one of several Italian-American siblings who married into Brooklyn Irish families.
Musical ability runs on both sides of Tony’s family. During the Prohibition years, Minnie Dempsey’s Italian immigrant father ran a speakeasy in East New York, where he played the piano and mandolin. Tony’s paternal uncle Louie DeMarco was a singer who performed with 1950s doo-wop groups, including “Dickie Dell and the Ding Dongs.”
After a few attempts this week, the Bedford & Sullivan podcast finally gets the 57th episode off the ground. On this episode, Carl Erskine and I immerse ourselves talk of pitching.
Carl and I have discussed many a things about Brooklyn and the Dodgers over our many episodes on air. We haven't, however, devoted an entire episode to the art of pitching, which I certainly believe to be a conversation worth having when digging deep into the detail of what this television show could be. What better way than to discuss the artform with an all-time great such as Carl Erskine? We'll dig deep into his philosophy, how he altered it from batter to batter, and what he finds to be the biggest difference from the era he pitched in to the era we currently live in.
So, join us at 9am ET for the latest edition of the Bedford & Sullivan podcast!

To listen to the show click the link,or: ON DAY OF SHOW ONLY: Call in to speak with the host 347-215-7169.
Hailing from the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, NY. He was approached by a talent agent while riding a New York City subway train. This chance encounter landed his first feature film role alongside Sean Connery and Rob Brown in the drama "Finding Forrester."
Fast forward to 2005, he began auditioning again and began to book major roles in several indie films one after the other. Among those many film roles is the critically acclaimed "Blueprint" (Dir: Kirk Shannon-Butts) in which he portrays a young college student having a romantic getaway with his male love interest. He took a more serious turn in the highly anticipated "True Story" (Dir: Rasheed Wilds) as the hot headed antagonist and drug dealer D. In the upcoming film "Soft Focus" (Dir: Rod Gailes, OBC) he stars as Marcus, a man living two lives at one time. Other credits include "When It Rains", "44", "Israel", "Sam" & "Pressure."
When Damion is not in front of the camera he coaches other actors, writes and performs his own poetry, and enjoys deep conversations about the journey of life.
Keepin' goin' with our new weekend routine, The Bedford & Sullivan podcast turns 46 today, the TV Series research process truckin' along strong.
Today, we have a Mr. Alan Newmark on the show, who has been on once before and is also a fellow alum of the summer camp I spent 9 summers at as a child. Alan, like my mother, had children go to this Tranquillity Camp as well, and at 95 summers strong, soon to be 96, it is quite the legacy.
Mr. Newmark has much to say on his childhood team, and today, we'll focus on the broadcasting element of this thing called baseball (fittingly with the modern NY National League broadcast being watched in the background.)
Tune in at 2pm ET for the latest edition of the Bedford & Sullivan podcast!
We are settling into the New Year with the first 2014 edition of the Bedford & Sullivan podcast, and we're keeping it in the family.
My mother's sister Barbara and Stan, her husband of 43 years, both grew up in Brooklyn and have their own unique perspective of the time we are focusing on in the development of the TV series. My aunt Barbara will discuss everything from heading out to Brighton Beach in the summer to collecting popcicle sticks to get into Ebbets Field for free, while Stan will discuss everything from his life growing up a Giants fan in Flatbush to playing basketball on his friend's driveway hoop on the way home from school.
So, join the family at 6:30PM ET for the latest edition of the Bedford & Sullivan podcast!
