Baseline to Baseline Since 1948

We’re very proud to be carrying the tradition of having each of the Championship round games on KDHL Radio for the 66th year.  When KDHL hit the airwaves in 1948 Harry Truman was in the White House and the Bikini was gaining in popularity.  Roy Keonig and I will have the games this week, but a number of guys have made the calls.  Gordy Hinck of Lake City for many years, Tom Hartman and Mike Morrissey just to name a few.  Morrissey picked a great year to head to Florida and say to heck with winter.  The distinction gets KDHL a seat right next to the folks from the Minnesota State High School League and we don’t take it lightly.  In 1948 Laurence Olivier’s Hamlet was named Best Picture while the movie Easter Parade made the most money grossing 6.8 million dollars.  The average cost of a new house was $7,700, a new car cost $1,250 and the average yearly wage was $2,950.  Gas was 16 cents a gallon, hamburger 45 cents a pound and a loaf of bread was 14 cents.  The Transister Radio debuted in 1948 and Velcro was invented in Switzerland.  The top song was Dinah Shore’s Buttons and Bows.  I’m sure the game of basketball has changed a lot too.  Probably not many dunks in the 1948 tournament.
