A few days later I received a call from a guy who told me that his name was John King (pictured above) and he’d he had been assigned the task of figuring out how to say yes to me. Wow, how cool was that, I had my own FCC attorney. I love John, and over the years not only did we put some incredible promotions together we also kept the license and I didn’t do any jail time.
The last project John and I worked on was the old, “Don’t Say Hello” contest, which used to blow up rating books but the FCC blew it up. Now you have to get a person’s permission before recording them or putting them on the air. After thinking about it for quite a while, I finally came up with the solution, and when I ran by John, he said, “I’m not sure it satisfies the intent of the law, but it certainly satisfies the law as it stands.” I now may be the only person in America who knows how to get “Don’t Say Hello” back on the air in its original form. Does anybody need any ratings?

The thing of it is, we need to watch the eyes of the politicians. If they’re watching the eyes of big business, it doesn’t matter if they’re Democrat or Republican, they’re evil, don’t vote for them.

Local radio cannot compete with the big boys on a national scale, but the “bigs” can’t compete with us locally unless we use their copy.
Isn’t it weird that even though radio is all about advertising, it doesn’t believe in advertising?
