Ha ha ha ...that's sweet of you CHED boy. You know? I really miss the days of Personality Radio as well. Back in the late 60's, we used to listen to KHJ with Charlie, who also went by the name of Chuck Tuna.
My dad was on the air at KDAY in LA at the time, but we all listened to Charlie as he was so incredibly cool, quick witted and loaded with that personality, and the 'Wolfman'?
CHUM too was amazing in the day. Bobby Magee, The Bear, John Majhor (that guy was so hot, so nice, couldn't believe it when he died) Jim Van Horne, Roger Ashby, JD Roberts, Jeannie Becker, Terry Steele and there I was, way too young (only 8 months on air total) to be at that station and as their first female DJ. I came back home with my tail between my legs and it was Don Schafer that picked up the broken pieces. (CFOX) He was one of those great mentors who'd been there and done it like us.
Sure, there were the A-holes in management that didn't understand us, and that resented announcers that were capable of big ratings and big personalities, but overall? It's inspirational to ponder just how many people have helped us out along the way by being our Mentors, Listeners, Friends, Consultants, Peers and Bosses, that really did care. We all knew someone who had our backs and were our cheerleaders. Someone was there to help bring out our better selves. Good grief, I'm starting to sound like Dr. Phil...wtf
This is a cool site. I wish there were some 'names' behind these Avatars.
