Here's some news about one of the 16 songs:

From WNYC to WFAN to The New York Times, Doris From Rego Park hits the airwaves!

“....Doris is heard only once briefly at the beginning of the recording.... And then a very poignant song occurs, a song sung by a young man out there in the world, listening to the FAN, and hearing Doris call in. Doris is viewed totally from his point of view, lying in bed, with his radio. ....The song speaks to urban loneliness and what these stations mean."
Jonathan Schwartz (WNYC)

"The song is a valentine to baseball and Bauer, for sure, but also about connection: the way all those lonely voices reach out on local sports radio in the wee hours when they should be fast asleep." Ken Plutnicki, The New York Times

”The Metropolitans in those days had no greater fan over the years than Doris from Rego Park....She listening to the games and all of us listening to her on the FAN. after the games. A fan she was every single night on the FAN, and attracting fans, herself, Like Don Rosler. Don Rosler, the singer, the lyricist, the producer, who remembers a fan. A listener. A caller. Don Rosler, who remembers springtime and baseball and Doris From Rego Park.” Steve Somers, WFAN
