Arguably the most recognizable voice to ever appear on The Co-Write, Eric Nadel has been the warm welcome to baseball season we all wait through the dreary Texas winters to hear. After forty plus years in the radio booth for your Texas Rangers, Eric has imbedded himself and his calls into the memory of every Texas Rangers fan. As a Ford C. Frick award winner, Eric has been recognized throughout the baseball world as one of the best in his craft.
Aside from his distinguished baseball career, and his recognized bibliography, Eric has been an avid fan and promoter of the local D/FW music scene. From his support of Daphne Willis, to his massively successful birthday shows that support the Dallas charity Focus on Teens, Eric has used his position as one of the great broadcasters in America to place artists in front of large crowds on a regular basis.

We want to let you know that we have just released our first Patreon only podcast over at our Co-Write Patreon site. Donovan and I run down and play our 15 favorite songs of all time. These lists are always hard, and you’re sure to leave off a song here and there, but it was great fun, and I think you’ll get a lot out of it. $5 is all it takes to be a Patron. You get early access to podcasts as well as the video recordings from our Zoom calls. You will have the chance to submit questions to your favorite artists and get to the bottom of those things you answers to. Check it, and join us on Patreon, if you’re able.
