Radio has to figure out what it does the best and then do it all the time.
As far as I’m concerned Neilson only does 3 things wrong. They under measure mornings, they over measure the rest of the day, and because they’re for sale, they probably cut corners.
Being gay is ok but it’s not special enough to warrant all the activity that surrounds it.
The person who can handle responsibility always ends up with a ton of it.
You know you’re getting old when you’ve never heard of the current singers in Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band.
When a company starts cutting back to become more profitable, somehow the executives’ salaries always survive.
I think we middle-class white men should get organized and have a parade. We could carry signs reading, “We’re tired of paying most of the taxes and getting nothing.” Just our sheer numbers should be enough to scare the sh*t out of the government.
Even though a lie may sound like the truth, it ain’t.
Past behavior is a predictor of future behavior.
Wow, the Saudis are considering allowing their women to fly without a male companion. How progressive of them huh?
Hollis W Duncan: Andy was paired with Ben Laurie while I was at KVIL and & he & I enjoyed several lunches and many good conversations. Andy was so confident in his intelligence that he felt no need to prove it to anyone, so our conversations (with me mostly listening) consisted of stories that showed a high level of knowledge & understanding paired with deep insight. When we were sitting in a Deli in University Park, Andy taught me the proper pronunciation of Gefilte Fish. When KVIL started charging for parking, Andy left the memo on Dave Spence’s door with the typed note: “Thank you for helping KVIL make another million.” Spence went around to all of the typewriters to find the culprit. Andy was a great newscaster and a very good guy. (News To Me)
Dave Spence: George – I don’t know who Hollis Duncan is and he certainly doesn’t know me or the story he attaches to me. While I was there, we never charged for parking. What he is referencing was when we went up on the cost of cold drinks (5 or 10 cents as I recall) from the “Coke” machine. The note was on newsprint which was only used in the- wait for it – newsroom. I agree that Andy was a great newsman. Very well educated, expansive vocabulary, and voice inflection that left no doubt what side of the story he was on. (News To Me)
God Bless, Easter Quail. (In Flanders Field – Bruce Walker, The Jury)
Please give us a bio on Jim West. I always wondered what happened to him.
He was a friend and great Pam’s jingle salesman. Like so many others in our industry, they are gone but not forgotten.
I programmed for Stoner Broadcasting and Ken Greenwood’s Ventures’ (About George Johns)
Geo: Jim was responsible for my consulting career taking off so fast Peter, and he was also one of my partners when we bought Fairwest from Mr. Fairbanks.
Earl Mann: What I’m going to say will make ‘progressives’ reach for a brown paper bag. But, here goes: Trump is doing an incredible job especially considering the headwinds the liberal media throws at him 24/7. “It’s the economy stupid”! (Comments)
All the best! (Camera Graduates)
Terry Kenny: George that was great…..I loved the entire history, although I remember some of it differently. That could be because of my history with one of my first groups, the ChorduRoys, which was a great experience for me until the Phantoms/The Jury. What a heartwarming legacy! (I Remember The Jury)
Barry O’Brien: I appreciate your concerns, but I’m wondering how many people would listen to a radio station that focused on the negative all the time. Then again, I just sold the stuff you put on the air, so what do I know? It all worked out ok. (Writing The Wrongs)
James Ford: I love this blog. I remember KLZS in Wichita using the “The station you are helping to build” approach. It was a great concept. (K103 Part II)
Geo: Terry, I have no idea where they come from. Maybe I read them or heard them somewhere, but most mornings, I have a few of them in my head bursting to get out.
The record would end, with none cued up on the other TT. No carts loaded (music or otherwise)… Mike on, but somehow would not work (or capture my audible mutterings OR screams). Try to cue up another song on the disc that just ended- disc disappeared… Go look for more records or carts- anything! But none to be had. The DEAD AIR NIGHTMARE! (Earl Mann Has A Dream)
