John Miley, 75, has collected sports broadcast recordings since he was a teenager. He has all the Super Bowls and a half-century's worth of Kentucky Derby and World Series tapes — most in his basement in Evansville, Ind. Miley's favorite play-by-play announcer was Bill Stern. We hear a bit of the 1946 Rose Bowl.
