Bill King passes away

Legendary Bay Area sports broadcaster Bill King passed away today, and I must admit, it bums me out. A great talent, I know him mostly as the radio voice of the Oakland Athletics, but he previously did play by play for the Oakland Raiders and the Golden State Warriors. He has one of the great radio voices, and listening to him call innings for the Athletics was one of the things that I enjoyed the most.

Bill, you’ll be missed.
