A little over a year ago I was having lunch with a social worker who was checking me out because my daughter Cami was going to live with me for a while. Mr. Johns I’ve been told that you are an alcoholic were her first words to me. How the hell do you respond to that other than deny it.

How kind would PPM be to Howard Stern today.
I was listening to some football experts on TV discussing that now a days they don’t give the rookies enough time to learn the pro game before they play them. I doubt with the amount of money teams have to pay rookies now a days any of them are looking to run a football school.
When Bob Christy and I wanted to launch a Country Station in Boston we were told Boston was the only place in America where Country wouldn’t work.
