    Didn't he broadcast TV games for the Reds several years back?

    SAN DIEGO (AP) Charlie Jones, the deep-voiced sportscaster whose career as a play-by-play announcer dated to the beginning of the American Football League in 1960, has died. He was 77.

    Jones died of a massive heart attack Thursday at his home in the La Jolla district of San Diego, said his wife, Ann.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Yep, without looking it up, I know that Charlie Jones was doing Reds telecasts during the 1973 season and probably 1974.

    Not sure if he was around beyond that or not.

    I liked him, he was a real pro. Seems as though he may have worked with Wes Parker.
    I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

    He did have a cool "one and only" voice.

    Very good announcer. He had a unique voice that I will always associate with the late games of the NFL that NBC used to carry. RIP Charlie Jones.
