Sports Stories with Feinstein on Tuesday AU

feinstein.jpg

Sportswriter John Feinstein has lived every fan’s dream: behind-the-scenes access to many of the great sports figures of our time, including Bob Knight, Dean Smith, Tiger Woods, John McEnroe, Ivan Lendl, and Martina Navratilova as well as encounters with less-heralded but fascinating players and coaches in the Patriot League, the U. S. Military Academies, and at golf’s Q School.

Feinstein is author of many books including New York Times #1 bestsellers “A Season on the Brink,” and “A Good Walk Spoiled,” and his latest book is “One on One – Behind the Scenes with the Greats in the Game.”  He’ll be in Utah on June 16 as a part of the Sundance Author Series. John Feinstein is Tom Williams’ guest for the hour on Tuesday’s Access Utah.

Tom Williams worked as a part-time UPR announcer for a few years and joined Utah Public Radio full-time in 1996. He is a proud graduate of Uintah High School in Vernal and Utah State University (B. A. in Liberal Arts and Master of Business Administration.) He grew up in a family that regularly discussed everything from opera to religion to politics. He is interested in just about everything and loves to engage people in conversation, so you could say he has found the perfect job as host “Access Utah.” He and his wife Becky, live in Logan.
