Danny Gallivan. If you're not old enough to have heard him, get some tapes. He introduced new language to the game without calling attention to himself. He was classy, articulate and brought his passion to the broadcast. He introduced, cannonading,scintillating,spinerama,paraphenalia and whirling dervish into every anglo Mtl. kid's vocabulary in the 60's. He referred to Pete Mahovlich as Peter the Younger. He never took himself too seriously and frankly would have been embarassed by today's radio guys who overdo it hoping to be on the next day's highlight package.
