“Oakley, you are Broadway.” Fresh off her run as Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway, Desi Oakley joins Al in the Batter’s Box to talk about her career both on stage and in the recording studio. Fresh off the Yankees’ Division Series win the night prior to recording, they even played some baseball and Broadway crossover trivia in a new segment called “7th Inning Stretch.” Al volunteers his producer, Alan Seales, to serve as Desi’s lifeline for all of the baseball-related questions, and the segment goes awry quickly. With nearly a decade of work on the back of her baseball card, Desi tells some great stories spanning anywhere from the Emerald City to Joe’s Pie Diner.
