Irwin, voice of the Packers, dies at 77 - JSOnline. It's been years since I've listened to a Green Bay Packers game on the radio. Back in the late 80s and early 90s, when I got frustrated with the lousy commentators on CBS (the Packers never merited Madden and Summerall in those days), I'd turn the volume down and turn on the radio to listen to Irwin and McGee. They retired from broadcasting back in 1998, and Max McGee died a couple years ago. Their radio broadcasts have been out of my life for a while, but those are some fond Packer memories.
