I was nine years old when the 1975 World Series was played, so I wasn't too aware of such things. But I remember my Dad commenting about how disappointed Gowdy was that the Reds won, and because he was for the Red Sox.
When you watch Game 7 again these days on ESPN Classic, you realize how Gowdy didn't do a very good job of disguising his lack of enthusiasm for the Reds victory. He was never one of my favorites, but the sound of his voice on a broadcast brings back good memories of my younger days, nevertheless.
