We jump in the time machine going from 2017 Wrigley Field to 1961 Candlestick Park in San Fransisco.
This season on Throwback Thursday we will disguise our time machine as a car from that year (or era) this week’s pick is:
on the radio /jukeboxes
If you were driving your Rambler to Fisherman’s Wharf listening to KSFO(the Giants radio flagship in ’61) or at the malt shop with your swwety feeding quarters into the jukebox you might have heard

great pics of Willie Mays , Wille Mac and other bay area greats)
lon and russ also did the games on ktvu tv
highlights from 61
team finish 3rd 8 gb of cincy
