Comments From Geo’s Media Blog.
Jerry K: Thanks for including that George, that was a brutal awakening. I’ve never considered that as an option but one can see how you could slide into that groove. We are getting into the age that fellow record spinners are starting to drop for various reasons. The cold hard facts of life are when your gone, you’re gone. The gig is up, no final goodbyes and lots of unfinished business. Enjoy life to the fullest and never sell yourself short. Live every day as if it’s your last, it just might be. Make peace with all, friend and foe while there is still a chance. Most of all don’t leave until they shove you out the door. (Suicide Prevention)
Steven Smith: George…I really enjoyed your article entitled, Sales Promotions. Nice to read history written by a guy who was there.
Paul Cavenaugh: First of all, every car is worth about 25% of its original purchase price after five years. (12% actual trade value). Electric and Hybrids depreciate even more because of the eventual cost to replace the battery. Yachts are even worse! Down at my condo pool, the music playing the loudspeaker is from the 60s and 70s. The Frank Sinatra station is number one at Hospice! (Mostly Life-Liners)
Earl Mann: GREAT ARTICLE GEORGE! It deserves to be #1! I’ve personally witnessed Trump’s extraordinary generosity. He gifted my son-in-law with $40K for his double lung transplant. Do not judge him solely by his words ~ (he can be a rude, crude dude). And do not judge him by anything said about him by the ‘alphabet media.’ Judge him, rather, on his deeds! Trump is an extraordinary human being! But, the mainstream media will never tell that side the story! Thank you for doing so! (Unthinkable Trump)
Canada has become the Nation of the double standard. (Classy)
Geo: All countries think that the folks that they don’t want are much worse than the people that other countries don’t want, Doug.
You have had a hand in all of that….ever think of a column on KFRG/KXFG/KVFG/KEZN? They deserve some props…..just my view. (Classy)
Tom, the Muses give me this stuff, but they do it chronologically, I’m not at the Frog days yet, but I will be, buckle up!
Steve Michaels: KZZY to KLLS in San Antonio. I didn’t know what greatness I was with when I was in the Alamo City. Thanks, George!
Jim Ford: I loved the Class FM format which I listened to in Wichita on KLZS. It played mostly currents and recurrents and didn’t get too old. I really liked the concept.
Glen Livingston: Thanks, George. Winnipeg’s loss was our gain when Daryl B relocated to Vancouver and became a CKLG boss jock. Listening to his show was the highlight of my day!
Geo: Daryl was not only a great friend of mine Glen, but he also produced my first record plus got me the Music Director’s job at CKY which kick-started my radio career.
JJ: Yes, I always thought it was very interesting how politicians get so wealthy on their salary, hmmm. (Livin’ Large)
Geo: They’re just a heartbeat away from jail at all times Jenn Jenn.
Believe me, George, I happen to like a WIDE variety of music types…from dance to easy listening…rock, folk, ballads, R & B, country…even hip-hop and Rachmaninoff!…to name only a few.
Like you say, “…lots of memories.” I happen to think IN THE AIR TONIGHT (Phil Collins) is still a winner…and would love to have been in the control room to play DON’T BE FALLING IN LOVE – AS SHE’S WALKING AWAY (Zac Brown Band – w/Alan Jackson), etc., etc…
Could Pandora or Spotify be today’s KVIL? I hear them EVERYWHERE!
Oh well, enough said…my 50-second+ break is way over. Glad you put the blog together. Really. Over and O U T…Jack. (Retro Radio In Dallas
Geo: Yes, you’re right Jack, death is a better word, and she began dying when CBS installed their New York ways of doing things. Why do New Yorkers always think they know better? Kay-Ville began taking on water the moment they decided that Ron Chapman was an “oldies” jock. When they put Ron on KLUV, that was the end my friend, and she never recovered. I’m writing her obituary even as you read this.
Mike Buxser I Enjoy your blog. Spent 50 years doing radio and loved (almost) every minute of it.
Keep trucking, my friend.
