Author Steve McKee has published, on his website, audio recordings of what he writes is a "never before heard" conversation with legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, who died at age 99 in 2010.
McKee wrote on the site that the interview took place May 18, 1991, 16 years after Wooden had retired from UCLA, where he won 10 national championships.
The interview was conducted for a book he was writing, McKee wrote. He adds that the interview is segmented into 24 parts, each identified by its content.
The segments range from talk about Lew Alcindor and Bill Walton to how Wooden improved as a coach in the off-season to his decision to retire, and much more.
Here is a link to his webpage that contains links to all 24 parts of the interview with Wooden.
