Weekdays 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

Long before The Silver Bullet Band and The Bob Seger System was Bob Seger & The Last Heard. "Sock It to Me Santa" was the band's second single, and it definitley was more than a little inspired by Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels. The James Brown sample from "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" was a fun touch.

It is opening day in the Motorcity and there is no better way to get ready then taking a look back at Seger’s never released baseball song and his interview about it…

Ever heard the Seger song “Can’t Hit The Corners” – it was never released, but Bob Costas gravitated to it (feels like a sports song…right?). But there’s a different meaning behind it.

Here is the full interview from 1991

Seger - Can't Hit The Corners

Ever heard the song "Can't Hit The Corners"? It was never released by Bob Seger -- but Bob Costas knew about it and asked Bob about it.
