The Masters was scheduled to tee off this Thursday and just a month ago it was almost unfathomable to imagine anything getting in the way of the storied event. Like all sports though, the PGA has been put on pause because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

While radio stations and TV networks everywhere continue to re-broadcast old games and events, SiriusXM also dug through their vault and beginning Wednesday, golf fans can get their fix of classic Masters tournaments. From Wednesday April 8 through Sunday April 12, SiriusXM subscribers and everyone will have live access to the final rounds of seven memorable Masters. 

Last week, Howard Stern announced SiriusXM is offering free access to its live radio streams, including their premium tier through May 15, helping to provide entertainment for the general public as we continue to practice social distancing. 

“Masters week is a special time on the calendar for many sports fans, and we wanted to mark the week with programming that celebrates the Tournament, its history and great performances from this iconic sporting event,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “These shot by shot replays will transport listeners back to thrilling classic moments of this Tournament, and it’s great to be able to offer this programming to everyone, including non-subscribers, through our free streaming access happening now.” 

SiriusXM’s Classic Masters broadcasts will feature these memorable Sunday finishes:

1986 Masters – The 46-year-old Jack Nicklaus hadn’t won a major championship in six years. But over the final 10 holes on Sunday, the Golden Bear plays some of the most stirring golf ever seen, shooting an astounding six under on the second nine to win a record sixth Green Jacket. Airs Wednesday, April 8 (3:00-7:00 pm ET)

2012 Masters – An exciting Sunday round, that featured four players holding at least a share of the lead, saw Bubba Watson and Louis Oosthuizen tied after the 72nd hole.  After a spectacular second shot from the woods on the second playoff hole, Watson wins his first Green Jacket.  Airs Thursday, April 9 (2:00-7:00 pm ET)

1997 Masters – Tiger Woods’ first Green Jacket, and his first of 15 major championship wins, announced his arrival as a towering figure in golf.  At age 21, playing in only his third Masters, Woods set a total of 20 Masters records and tied six others.  Airs Thursday, April 9 (7:00-11:00 pm ET)

2013 Masters – Adam Scott defeats Angel Cabrera on the second playoff hole for his first major victory, becoming the first Masters champion from Australia.  Airs Friday, April 10 (12:00-6:00 pm ET)

2005 Masters – The 2005 Tournament featured one of the most famous shots in golf history, Tiger Woods’ dramatic chip-in at 16.  In the face of Chris DiMarco’s valiant Sunday charge, Woods sinks a 15-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole to claim his fourth Green Jacket.  Airs Friday, April 10 (6:00 pm – midnight ET)

2004 Masters – In one of the most exciting second-nine performances in Masters history, Phil Mickelson duels Ernie Els, with Mickelson ultimately securing a victory with an 18-foot birdie putt on 18 to claim his first Green Jacket and the first major championship victory of his career.  Airs Saturday, April 11 (2:00-6:00 pm ET)

2019 Masters – Eleven years after his last major win, and 14 years since his last Masters victory, Tiger Woods wins his fifth Green Jacket, topping a star-studded leader board by one stroke.  Airs Sunday, April 12 (12:00-6:00 pm ET)

In addition to the final round rebroadcasts, SiriusXM will offer new shows hosted by former Major PGA champions including Ben Crenshaw, Fred Couples, Greg Norman and more.  Listeners will also hear interviews from past Masters champions on Sirius channel 208, XM channel 92 and the SiriusXM app.

Ray Didinger Subject of NFL Films Feature, Tells Angelo Cataldi He’s Stayed Busy in Retirement

Former 94WIP host and Philadelphia Daily News and NBC Sports Philadelphia writer Ray Didinger retired earlier this year, but he told Angelo Cataldi he’s remained busy even though he stepped away from his media career.

“It’s been busier than I thought,” Didinger said. “Just because of the way things have gone in the city. The Phillies going to the World Series, the Eagles are 10-1, I don’t think any of us thought it was going to be this kind of run. Consequently, my phone hasn’t stopped ringing. I had no idea everyone in the world has a podcast so I’ve been getting all those calls. My name and my phone number are on way too many rolodexes all around the country. When somebody says ‘Hey, let’s do a piece about Philly’, my phone rings. It’s been busy but it’s been good. It’s been great to see what this has meant to the city.”

Didinger hosted shows from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM on Saturdays and Sundays for 94WIP. In total, he spent more than 50 years covering the NFL before retiring in May.

After Cataldi asked for Didinger’s opinion on the 2022 Eagles, he asked the now-retired reporter if he was still using his yellow notepad. Didinger admitted he does still use the notepad, and Cataldi chastised his former colleague after he said he would retire the notepad. Cataldi joked when he retires after the Eagles season concludes, he hopes to lose co-hosts Al Morganti and Rhea Hughes’ phone numbers.

Didinger will be the subject of an NFL Films feature about his longtime career covering the league. The program will air on FS1 on Friday at 12:30 AM.

Tom Rinaldi

It was a banner week for FOX Sports during the Thanksgiving holiday, and no one got more work than the network’s Tom Rinaldi. 93.7 The Fan morning show host Colin Dunlap believes Rinaldi deserves props for his schedule.

“It’s insane what he’s done,” Dunlap said. “I wrote it down and I saw somebody tweet it. Listen to this schedule — and I don’t even know if it’s worth it — but listen to what Tom Rinaldi has done: Wednesday? Qatar. Thursday? Dallas for the Cowboys game. Friday? Back to the US-England match in Qatar. Saturday? In Columbus, Ohio for Michigan/Ohio State. Sunday? Kansas City for the NFL game.

“And then if you’ve gotta guess, he’s gonna be at the American game tomorrow so he’s travelling back to Qatar today. I don’t even travel back and forth to Baltimore like that. He’s going from Doha to Dallas and Kansas City to Doha and Columbus to Doha. Something’s up! There’s two Tom Rinaldi’s.”

Dunlap, co-host Chris Mack, and producer Adam Crowley then discussed whether FOX Sports was using Rinaldi enough. While noting that he’s travelling to all these locations, they believe he isn’t being utilized enough for the bigger stories he’s been known for.

They also joked about whether Rinaldi was flying back and forth on Rupert Murdoch’s private jet and whether or not that would make life easier.

Boomer & Gio: NFL RedZone Botched Transition From Seahawks/Raiders

“If he would have told me ‘We’re taking this off, sorry, those are the rules’, I could have accepted that. He told me that it was on my local CBS!”

Josh Jacobs scored a tremendous 86-yard touchdown run in overtime as the Las Vegas Raiders defeated the Seattle Seahawks Sunday. Unfortunately, many didn’t get to see it live as NFL RedZone cut away from the game due to NFL broadcasting rules. WFAN morning show Boomer & Gio believe the coverage was botched by the channel and host Scott Hanson.

“The RedZone is who I have issue with,” Gregg Giannotti said. “Scott Hanson — who I have trusted for many years — tells me and the rest of the country to go over to your local CBS and watch the rest of this overtime. ‘International customers stay here. If you’re in America, go over to your local CBS.’ So I go over to my local CBS and there’s some guy wiping off dinosaur eggs with a brush.”

“I’m so confused with the TV rules — and I’ve been in it for 22 years. I’m just very confused,” Boomer Esiason added.

After a discussion about what the rules actually are for television broadcasters and the NFL, the show concluded NFL RedZone couldn’t air portions of just a single game that was still underway.

“If he would have told me ‘We’re taking this off, sorry, those are the rules’, I could have accepted that. He told me that it was on my local CBS,” Giannotti said.

Esiason asked for the show to get in touch with Mike North, the NFL’s Vice President of Broadcasting, joking that they needed to know who to blame for the blunder.

“Somebody dropped the ball over there, that’s for sure,” Giannotti concluded.
