From 1971 to his retirement in 2011, Woody Durham was the "Voice of the Tar Heels," the radio play-by-play man for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our State magazine once said: "To his listeners, he has been a faceless passenger in a car, the audio to a muted television, or the man inside the earplugs. To his listeners, he's what powder blue sounds like."
In this autobiography, Woody takes the reader on a nostalgic stroll down memory lane--from his descriptions of a sleepy Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and the days of football legend ChooChoo Justice to the enormous changes in college sports and how they are covered to his dozens of behind-the-scenes stories about the coaches and players he worked with during his tenure.
As coauthor Adam Lucas describes in his acknowledgments: "This book is about Woody's] life, but for many of us, it's also about an era of Tar Heel sports--one that we heard through him."
