Stories Beyond the Scores

Saturdays at 8:04 a.m. and Sundays at 4:04 p.m.

Each week on Stories Beyond the Scores, host Dr. Chris Reynolds shares a brief moment in sports history. Our stories are off-beat and, at times, moving. They're sometimes hidden and oft times forgotten tales of the people, places and events that enliven the world of sports. These are just some of the stories you’ll hear:

  • a look at the first Wrigley Field, built in Los Angeles, and how two brothers and Gene Autry were involved in it.
  • Vin Scully’s six-decade career as the voice of the Brooklyn (and Los Angeles) Dodgers, and how Scully’s career inspired a young Charley Steiner to pursue sports broadcasting.
  • The story of Peoria native Charlotte Lewis, who helped make history as a member of the first women’s Olympic basketball team at the 1976 Summer Olympics.

Stories Beyond the Scores is produced by the Charley Steiner School of Sports Communication at Bradley University, and is a joint venture with Peoria Public Radio. Dr. Chris Reynolds is Bradley University’s Director of Athletics.

Stories Beyond the Scores airs Saturdays at 8:04 a.m. and Sundays at 4:04 p.m. on Peoria Public Radio.
