The Spirit of '76

For what it's worth, perhaps my favorite UGA football team of all time is the 1976 SEC title squad, which will be celebrating its 40th anniversary this fall. With that being said, it was recently Christmas in July at my house. Santa Dawg, or, more like two very good friends, who both deeply appreciate, while wanting to preserve, Georgia football's rich tradition and history every bit as much as I do, generously delivered me gifts from the Bulldogs' championship season of '76. 

From the Georgia-Clemson game that year, a snippet from one of my new presents:



Called by the late and legendary Larry Munson, I am now in possession of the Georgia Bulldog Network's radio recordings from a number of games in 1976. But wait, there's more, like recordings of Munson calling gamesand, most of them in their entiretyfrom the 1975 and 1977 through 1982 campaigns, as well. 

I'm in absolute heaven, and I want to help share the wealth. If you're interested in obtaining any of these recently-unveiled Munson games from 1975 through 1982; you just happen to possess a vintage Georgia football radio broadcast of your own; and, you might be interested in a trade, please shoot me an email at patrick@patrickgarbin.com.

So, whether its the 1976 Florida game, featuring below the unearthed call of Munson on "Fourth and Dumb," please help, if you possibly can, my friends and I keep alive the spirit of the greatest football announcer of all time:
