Legendary Jayhawk sports broadcaster Max Falkenstien saw it all in his 60 years of broadcasting the University of Kansas sporting events. Max began his career as a high school junior in the early 1940s. Between 1946 and 2006, Max was behind the microphone for more than 1,750 KU basketball games and 600 KU football games. The Name Max Falkenstien has become synonymous with Kansas Athletics. "A Good Place to Stop" is the sequel to "Max and the Jayhawks"- a compilation of Max's first 50 years of broadcasting. "A Good Place to Stop" picks up where that book left off with recollections from Max's final 10 years as a Crimson and Blue broadcaster, including an athletics department shake-up, the exodus of long-time coach Roy Williams and subsequent hiring of Bill Self along with the hiring of two head football coaches. Once named "the best college radio personality in the country" by The Sporting News, the Voice of the Jayhawks now shares a recollection of his memories in this new book. Join Max as he relives 60 years of players, coaches, games, and the relationships that enabled him to describe the feats of so many Jayhawk student-athletes, in the process making them larger than life to the legions of fans who tuned in for every game to hear Max.

About the Author:

Max Falkenstien spent 60 years behind the microphone callng University of Kansas football and basketball games before retiring at the end of the 2005-06 basketball season. His career included Final Fours in basketball, including national championships in 1952 and 1988, plus Jayhawk football appearances in major bowl games. He currently serves as Special Assistant to the Kansas Athletics Director.

Review:

We knew Max waited a long time to see a victory over Nebraska. We thought it was only appropriate to give him the game ball for his loyalty to the football program. We knew he was happy over the victory, and we wanted him to know that we appreciated him and care about him. --Mark Mangino

A lot of people miss hearing Max on the radio, I'm sure. There are very few broadcasters around the country who were at the same place for 60 years, and have the following that Max enjoyed. The 2006-2007 season marked my 38th year of doing college play-by-play, and that's still not two-thirds of Max's tenure at KU. He's a fixture at KU. There's only one Vin Scully. And there's certainly only one Max Falkenstien. --Bob Davis, Jayhawk Network
