In celebration of 350 episodes of SportsJam with Doug Doyle, I'm posting some of the best episodes of the past.

Hall of Famer Marty Liquori is one of the greatest distance runners who now plays jazz guitar in Gainesville, Florida. Liquori talks about competing in and covering the Olympics, his battles with Jim Ryun, excelling at Essex Catholic High School in Newark and his passion to play jazz.

He spoke with SportsJam with Doug Doyle from his home in Florida in July of 2012.
