After the game back then, as today, you didn’t want to miss the full three-hour “Packer Sunday” broadcast on the Packers Radio Network, originating from WTMJ Radio in Milwaukee, Wis. You can listen online by clicking the “Listen Live” button on their website here.
With these next three pages, you can take a look at all of the replacement players, a few of whom played with the team post-strike.
Since this is 1987, set your Betamax or VHS recorder so that you won’t miss The Forrest Gregg Show on Monday night at 7:30 p.m.
