Today NJ boxing hall of famer Joe Chestul was laid to rest. The long time Bayonne resident fought Joe Lewis In 1949. He will be truly missed by family and friends If you look him up his boxing carrer is an insteresting one. He had told me that his last fight with Pat Comiskey the ref took a 200$ bribe. If he had won he would have had a shot at the world title.
Tony, I am a NYC transplanted working joe currently living in Albany. Recently, I was offered the opportunity to move to the midnight shift at work when a more senior guy retired. After contemplating the better days off I immediately thought, “cool, I would also get to listen to Tony Paige all night at work!” In addition to your sports knowledge which I value, you bring a warmth to the broadcast which I cherish.
I told my bosses “yes”, Tony! I will be making the move to the midnights in mid-October. Who knows, if I don’t get too many calls maybe I will be able to call in from time-to-time.
