Long-time TV columnist John Kiesewetter tells his favorite Joe Nuxhall stories with a PowerPoint presentation about his new book, “Joe Nuxhall: The Old Lefthander & Me – My Conversations with Joe Nuxhall about the Reds, Baseball and Broadcasting.” Over a 20-year span, Kiesewetter spoke with the beloved Reds radio announcer and history-making pitcher and about his baseball and broadcasting careers; his 31-year partnership with Marty Brennaman; the pranks they played on each other off the air; his all-time favorite Reds players; and even his Kroger TV commercials. Stories from Brennaman (who wrote the foreword), Johnny Bench, Tom Browning, Pete Rose, George Foster, Jeff Brantley, Chris Welsh, George Clooney, David Letterman, Jonathan Winters, Al Michaels and many others are in the lineup for Kiesewetter’s entertaining 300-page book. Part of the proceeds benefit the Nuxhall Foundation. Kiesewetter will have books available ($20 cash) to be signed at the meeting.
