Reminiscences of Race Track Announcers – Derek “Rock” Botten, Broadcaster & Voice Talent: NSM Podcast, Ep. 1

The time since I first jotted the note “start a podcast” somewhere on a scrap of paper can probably now be measured in years. I’ve been thinking about it for a while. A long while. And now I’ve finally got one to share.

In this first episode, I talk with my very good friend, Derek “Rock” Botten, a deeply respected radio broadcasting legend in this part of Ontario, Canada, and my former announcing partner at a stock car racing track called Delaware Speedway. In the late 90’s, Derek and I began as an announcing tandem for the local stock car races, a role we enjoyed together for over half a decade. We have been best of pals ever since.

In this podcast, some memories of those times are discussed, including some that proved to be, quite literally, life and death.
