CFL America Radio

CFL America Radio is where North American football is celebrated through game replays, old radio shows, and documentaries in the public domain on the history, remembrances, culture, lore, and legends of pro football in Canada, America and around the world. Additionally, every few weeks journalist Scott Adamson and armchair historian Greg James, from their 55 yard line cheap seats, sit down with authors and historians who, through their works, have given all of us a close-up look and perspective at the gridiron game we have grown up with and enjoy no matter where on the map we may call home.


From the 55 Yard Line- North America and Britain's Games With Michael MacCambridge

In the episode Scott and Greg sit down with noted professional football historian Michael MacCambridge, whose award-winning book "America’s Game: The Epic Story of How Pro Football Captured A Nation" is widely considered the definitive modern history of pro football in America.  We discuss his current book, which is devoted to professional football in England, entitled "Red Letters: Two Fervent Liverpool FC Supporters Correspond through the Epic Season That Wouldn’t End," his thoughts on the state of professional football and fandom, as well as his upcoming future book about professional sports in the America of the 1970s.
