Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:

I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.

The long-time columnist and author Jim Taylor is back. He’s always great to have on. A year ago when he was on for his memoir, “Hello, Sweetheart? Gimmie Rewrite!” My Life in the Wonderful World of Sports, he mentioned that he was fulfilling a lifelong ambition in writing a book with Dal Richards. Well, that book has just been published. We’ve talked to Dal, but I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to talk to Jim Taylor. He’s written a number of books already, biographies with Rick Hansen, Matt Dunigan, Wayne Gretzky, and more. This time, it’s One More Time! The Dal Richards Story, and it’s a great book. It’s a wonderful view on to Vancouver as it once was, and all the evidence you’d need on why Dal is such a legend, and such beloved figure in this town. The book is published by Harbour, and its co-author joins me now. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, Jim Taylor; Good morning, Mr. Taylor.
