Country Fastball baseball and music radio show

Oakland A's broadcaster Robert Buan hosts syndicated show about country music and the national pasttime



I'm sitting in the press box of the Oakland Coliseum (aka McAfee), watching the A's smack the Rangers around, and listening to the Dixie Chicks' "Lubbock or Leave It". Speaking of baseball and killer country music, on the elevator ride up to the press box, I ran into A's broadcaster Robert Buan, an East Bay resident who does a great job producing the A's radio broadcasts and hosts the very entertaining Extra Innings postgame program. Robert also hosts a cool radio show called Country Fastball, in which he talks with big league ballplayers about country music. The two-hour talk and tunes program is syndicated across 7 states, and can be heard in the Bay Area on 1550 AM, as well as through www.countryfastball.com, every Sunday at 6 p.m.
