Inadvertent Archivist

Jim Trelease wanted to be a sportscaster, but on March 2, 1962, he did not even intend to record a basketball game that made history. Wilt Chamberlain, a center for the Philadelphia Warriors, scored 100 points over the New York Knicks. Fifty years after the game, we hear parts of the recording and Dick talks to Trelease. Hear additional minutes from the recording here.
