The Chicago Baseball Museum is presenting classic interviews from the archives of CBM historian George Castle’s “Diamond Gems” syndicated weekly baseball radio show, which aired from 1994 to 2010.

This edition features a 2007 interview with all-time White Sox organist Nancy Faust, on the 30th anniversary of her inauguration of “Na, Na, Na, Hey, Hey, Hey, Good-bye” as a kind of team anthem when opposing teams pulled their pitchers. Faust began playing the 1969 Steam one-hit wonder during a July 29-31, 1977 showdown series with the Kansas City Royals at old Comiskey Park.

“The Diamond Gems Flashback” also features photos of the interviewees from the one-of-a-kind Leo Bauby Photo Collection, emphasizing Chicago baseball. Many photos are available to the general public directly on Ebay via seller name Soxphotos soxphotos | eBay.
