1960s Red Wings Radio Broadcast from Olympia Stadium

Broadcast legends Budd Lynch and Bruce Martyn were the radio announcers for the Detroit Red Wings back in the 1960s.  Lynch and Martyn have earned a sacred place in Red Wings history as both maintain a meaningful affiliation with the team. 

The clip below is from a live broadcast from Detroit’s Olympia Stadium from 1972 (verified by the very man who recorded it).  It is a brief introduction to the game’s broadcast and includes the voices of both Lynch and Martyn as well as ad plugs for the team’s sponsors.  It will bring back wonderful memories for those who have an appreciation for Olympia’s history.
