New Cincinnati Reds DVDs

You could call this the Cincinnati Reds latest greatest hits: Highlight films from the Reds last three World Championships -- 1975, '76 and '90 -- will be released on a single DVD disc on April 24 (the same release date for "WKRP in Cincinnati").

It's called the "Cincinnati Reds World Series Vintage Film Collection: 1975, 1976, 1990" from A&E Home Video and Major League Baseball. Suggested retail is $19.95. It runs 2 hours and 15 minutes. The 1975-76 films are narrated by Joe Garagiola, who did the games for NBC TV. Pat O'Brien narrates the '90 sweeps of the Oakland As. (He was working for CBS, which did the '90 Series).

Reds fans – particularly those who enjoyed the 7-disc set of the entire 1975 World Series released last year – will want more. And some day we might get them. Says publicist Suzanne Dobson: "Hopefully, A&E will be releasing complete World Series sets for those years soon. This title is just one DVD."

Also on April 24, A&E Home Video will release the entire 1977 Yankees-Dodgers World Series (15 hours for $69.95) and the entire 1987 Twins-Cardinals World Series (17 hours for $69.95). And there will be World Series highlight films for the Cleveland Indians (1948), Detroit Tigers (1945, 1968, 1984), Toronto Blue Jays (1992-93) and Anaheim Angels (2002). Each team DVD is $19.95.

Somewhere I have a VHS copy of the Reds 1961 World Series highlight film. I think another Reds film was made in the late 1950s. I don't know what exists from the Reds 1939-40 World Series. (Does anyone know?) I'd also love to see Tom Browning's perfect game, or Pete Rose's 4,192 game (or the game at Wrigley Field the previous weekend when he tied Ty Cobb).

I don't know if any of these things exist, but I'd love to see them. What would you like to see on DVD?

Off the topic..
I always was a big "Kristen Cornett" fan, and have not seen her lately on NBC/News 5 Weather Plus. So I went to the website "" and noticed they have pulled her biography and she is no longer listed.

Any idea where she is or what she is doing now??

I didn't own a VCR when Pete got 4192 if I had I'm sure the tape would have been rolling. I remember completely ditching my own birthday party the day before he broke the record to watch the game. I kept hoping he'd break the record on my birhtday - how cool would that have been?

Since I knew it was history in the making I did tape the 1990 World Series and I believe most of the playoffs as well. I'm thinking I might have some audio of Browning's perfect game...

I received the 7 disc 1975 series DVD for xmas last year and it's one the best gifts I've ever been given. It is a must have for any Cincinnatian.
