Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen
This was one of the most entertaining e-mails I’ve received in a long time. There’s a fan out there, Chris Pavia, who has captured the essence of Bob Sheppard and the late Eddie Layton with terrific impersonations of both.
From the YouTube page: “Listen as Chris takes you back in time sitting in your seat 45 minutes before the game and listening to the sounds of Eddie Layton and Bob Sheppard.”
He uses his own voice for Sheppard and the same type of organ, two keyboards and drum machine that Layton used at Yankee Stadium from the mid-1980s through 2003.
Chris is definitely talented – I can taste the hot dogs already. But don’t take my word for it. Turn up your volume and you be the judge and jury. What do you think?
