FutureAngels.com Radio Debuts

A new FutureAngels.com feature premiered today.

FutureAngels.com Radio isn’t really on the radio. It’s a podcast. But what the heck, Major League Baseball calls its webcasts "MLB Radio," so the precedent has been set.

You’ll find the podcast on TSP Radio, which isn’t radio either, but a site that hosts sports podcasters with the hopes of creating their own web-based sports network.

To listen to FutureAngels.com radio, go to podcast.tpsradio.net and click on the FutureAngels.com Radio link in the left column.

The guests on the first show are former Angels broadcaster Mario Impemba, recently acquired Angels reliever Chris Resop, and Rancho Cucamonga Quakes general manager Gerry McKearney. You’ll also hear highlight clips, and once we get into the season I’ll weave in news, analysis and plenty of Angels minor league history.
