Sparky and Nixon
Every now and then, TV treats us to a strange pairing of people. Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg hosting a cooking show. Bing Crosby and David Bowie singing Christmas carols. You think, what are they doing together? Yet you find something mesmerizing about the combination. This episode centers on an unlikely pairing of future Hall-Of-Famer, Sparky Anderson and former President Richard Nixon and the man who made the entire show happen, TV producer, Tom Delisle.
“I thought more of that matchup than anybody. It excited me beyond my dreams to get Nixon with Sparky Anderson. It's just a classic, I mean it's too absurd on one hand, and on the other hand it's perfect.”
Not only will you hear parts of that retro interview, you’ll also get a glimpse into the lives and struggles of Anderson and Nixon.
