  1. George, I just stumbled across your web site and I really enjoy it. Brings back fond memories in Indy at Fairbanks – we really had a one / two punch with WIBC / WNAP. What a group of talented people! Probably my happiest time in my professional career. . . thanks to you and Jim Hilliard.

  2. Bill, Thank you for your nice comments. I remember telling you that you shouldn’t leave WNAP to go to Memphis because your Super Star morning man, Rick Dees was going to LA. But as usual you sales types never listened to me. (: geo.
