In his biography, "Fifty Years Behind the Microphone," Les Keiter reveals that he was responsible for the decision to recreate Giant and not Dodger games on WINS in 1958, 1959, and 1960. Keiter thought the Giants had better players in their farm system and a brighter future. He was right about the players but wrong about the team's chances of winning it all.

did Keiter mention the first Clay/Liston bout? if I recall he, along with Joe Louis, did the bout on what was then called closed circuit TV, a live broadcast in a movie theater. I forked over six beans, a fortune to walk into a movie house in those days, to watch the fight. I waited in the ticket line behind Lauren Bacall and Jason Robards, married at the time, at an upper Westside movie palace, the likes of which have long ago disappeared, along with my memory of name of the house.
