I listened to an old vinyl album I had containing highlights of the Cardinals drive to the 1964 pennant including actual play by play excerpts from broadcasts of critical games and digitized it for posterity. The games are called by Harry Caray and Jack Buck, of course.
I was only five years old then, but I listened to Harry Caray many nights from '66-69. It's interesting to hear how much Harry gets excited and also down in the dumps when the Cardinals are playing well (or not so well). I know that it used to drive my father nuts that he was "over exaggerating" all the time. But it is fun to listen to, almost 50 years later. And Harry does predict a pennant early in the year (though he probably did that every year ... even with the Cubs! ) And of course it was one of the classic pennant drives of all-times (on Sept. 20 the Cardinals were tied with Cincinnati for second place, 6.5 games behind Philadelphia.)
If anyone would like to listen to this album, I apologize I cannot send you a file (because I'm a copyright lawyer in real life and have scruples about these things). However, I deposited the album in the digital content exchange and you can borrow it from me for two days for free (streaming only, no download). To sign up with the exchange is free as well. (During those two days, I will not be able to listen to it myself)
