The lost IBMA Phantom radio interviews #4 of 9 recorded June 25, 2015
During 2015 Bowl Expo in Las Vegas, Bowling News Network President Jim Goodwin was asked by the International Bowling Media Association to assist Len Nicholson in conducting several interviews with attending bowling center owners. For some reason, the audio and video recording equipment promised to IBMA did not arrive. Rather than waste the day, the interviews were recorded on a tablet, and the file was sent to Kegel engineers for the Phanton Show. It was determined that the sound quality was not good enough for radio, but recently, BNN had the recordings transcribed for print. Some of America's best bowling proprietors had some very interesting things to say that day. We know you will enjoy hearing from them.
