As Nellie stated, Elson was not the most exciting PBP guy but he was all we knew and not once did I ever hear him knock a ballplayer either on the Sox or the other team plus he has a spot in the Hall Of Fame.

Bob Elson had perfected the slow monotone voice but there was no one better in my mind. To improve the Hawk and Steve show get rid of Hawk, the word blowhard, full of oneself, but most of all irritating.
