Breaking News: Toby Charles Interview

toby charles soccer made in germany1 Breaking News: Toby Charles Interview

This Monday night, EPL Talk will interview the legendary Toby Charles from “Soccer Made In Germany” fame.

The host and commentator of the show, which ran from 1976 to 1988 on PBS stations in the United States, is one of the pioneers for soccer in the United States. Ask the majority of soccer fans who grew up with the sport in the late 70s and early 80s, and you’ll hear stories of nostalgia about Toby Charles, his voice and the brilliant one hour show that used to air on early Saturday mornings.

I’ve spent approximately 18 months tracking him down only to find that he’s currently living in Florida, the same state where I reside.

But I need your help. Please post your questions for Mr. Charles here under the comments section or email them to thegaffer[at]epltalk[dot]com before Monday night November 19, 2007. And if I ask the questions on -air, I’ll mention your name.

Listen now to the interview with Toby Charles.
