There were three days until Christmas: By Andy Purvis

There were three days until Christmas, at Sportsradio,

The best sports show in Corpus was all set to go.

The microphones were all live and the sound was turned up,

The Lone Ranger music was about to erupt.


Sliding Bill Doerner was ready, all snug in his chair.

He waits until 6 to put us on air.

With his finger he points and that’s when I say.

Welcome to Dennis & Andy’s Q & A.


I introduce my partner, whose name’s Dennis Quinn

He gives me a nickname as our show starts to begin.

I’m usually pretty good at getting it right,

He tries his hardest to stump me with all of his might.


Dennis has a broad face and a round little belly

That shakes when he laughs like a bowl full of jelly

I’m chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,

And I laugh when I see him in spite of myself.


Sports is our passion, we don’t make this stuff up.

We ask trivia questions and the answers are tough.

884 1230 is the number to call,

Pick up the phone and join in, we are having a ball.




We line up interviews for all of our fans,

George Springer, Dan McReynolds, Gabe Lucido with a tan.

We talk Minor League pitching with Orioles Mark Blackmar,

And learn from Bob Doty about racing and NASCAR.


We’ve interviewed many this year including Carlos Correa.

We also talked football with FOX NFL official Mike Periera.

Mike Trout, Adam Jones, andMiloHamilton,

Are just some of the stars with whom we’ve had fun?


Red Sox stars Dustin Pedoria and Big Papi Ortiz

When joining the “Session” they all say their piece.

J.R. Richards,DallasKeuchel, Larry Dierker and Ken Schrom

Share funny stories while droping some bombs.


Reid Ryan of the Astros and Brad Horn from theHOF

Say nice things about us and call us by name.

We laugh and have fun and sing once in awhile,

While covering the “old school” stuff with a smile.


Shane Nelson, Juan Castillo, they gave us their time.

Jose Altuve, Joc Pederson and Cliff Pennington were kind.

With Hall of Famers Nolan Ryan and Craig Biggio,

The hour flies by, we don’t know where it goes.


We say Merry Christmas to each of our fans.

We thank the Caller Times for giving us a hand.

We enjoy all our listeners and ask them to call.

Give us your “take,” you could be right after all.


As we sign off, with our Pal Jackie Gleason,

We want you to understand, that you are our reason,

We come on each week and talk about the sports biz.

And we always end our show with “How Sweet it is.”


So thank youCorpus   Christifor listening to our show

You’ve helped us celebrate 20 years in a row.

We pray that all in your family remain happy and bright

Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight.
