LEXINGTON, Ky. - Central Kentucky will play host to the 40 year reunion of the 1972 USA Olympic Basketball team which lost the disputed Gold Medal game to the USSR in Munich, Germany.  It is still one of the most controversial finishes in sports history, and the captain of that team, Georgetown College's own Kenny Davis reflects on the memories that still burn bright 40 years on.  We also talked with former Lexington Herald Leader and Louisville Courier Journal sports columnist Billly Reed, who was instrumental in putting the reunion together.

Bitten by the radio bug as a teenager, Alan Lytle got his start start more than 30 years ago volunteering in Clermont County, Ohio for WOBO-FM. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Broadcasting from the University of Cincinnati and worked at a variety of radio stations in the Cincinnati market, then made the move to Lexington in the mid-1990s.
