I’ve known U-M football archivist Art Vuolo for a while because he’s omnipresent. You can find him rolling tape at anything Michigan related—games, busts, award ceremonies, outings…you name it. I promised Art a plug and here goes:
Since 1979, Art Vuolo has been on the photo deck of the Michigan press box for nearly every single home game capturing, on video, the action and excitement, but most of all, the things not seen or heard on television. He features the elements that make all the football Saturdays in Ann Arbor a true fan experience, like the tailgates, the pre-game festivities, the marching band, halftime show, special on field presentations and best of all…he offers complete games dubbed and synchronized with the Michigan radio broadcast instead of the clowns on the networks.
In the mid-1970’s Vuolo produced the famous Bob Ufer albums, now on CD. He began recording the games from radio when Bo Schembechler arrived in 1969 and nearly every game features Ufer (yes, complete Ufer games), Frank Beckmann and now Jim Brandstatter and Dan Dierdorf.
He doesn’t do this to make money — Art does it to spread the love.
