Interview with Alex Delvecchio (audio)


For those of you who missed the earlier post, I interviewed Red Wings Hall-of-Famer Alex Delvecchio at his Birmingham-based business on Monday. I must first say that he was one of the nicest, most accommodating people I have ever met, and it was an amazing experience getting to interview him.

Between work, interviewing for an internship, getting ready for school, preparing to move in to a new apartment, and trying to find some time to relax, I haven't had the chance to transcribe the audio from my interview. However, I figured I'd put up the mp3 file for anyone that is interested in hearing the interview in its entirety. He said some very interesting things, from how he thinks the teams of the 50's compare to today's teams to what he thought of the nickname 'Fats'. Delvecchio is a legend and a true gentleman, and still is an avid Wings fan, so if you can get over my bumbling interview style, I highly recommend listening to what he has to say.

UPDATE: Now with streaming audio. Hooray.

A big thanks to Dave at Gorilla Crouch for linking to the interview and providing a pretty great synopsis of it.
